Nikolas Strugar Great snare and tom sounds, big guitars! Nice choice of chromatic notes in the breakdowns too.

MattM A great modern prog-metal band. Enough complexity to be interesting but not too much to simply be unenjoyable beyond appreciating the musical skill. Not a bad track on here. Favorite track: The Frontline.

Adam Byatt All the groove, all the heavy and sounding mighty, mighty fine. Metal with the djent edge up there with Periphery et al.

'The Compass', the debut mini album from Australia metallers Circles, available from 27th June 2011 via BASICK

Amazon Digital:

“a breathtakingly accomplished debut, and one that ably shows that there’s no reason that technicality and wider accessibility can’t co-exist. Hugely recommended.” 4.5/5 - One Metal

“Circles are primed for great things. While retaining an edge of progressive intricacy, they have created a very accessible and catchy EP full of songs you can sing along with and mosh to in equal measures. The Compass lays down a blueprint of excellence and hopefully the foundations of an amazing career for the band.” 10/10 - MWD Reviews

“It is basically simple, The Compass is easily one of the very best releases so far this year and Circles will be one of the most respected bands of all time in what could be on this evidence, the very near future.” - Ringmaster Reviews
