After an earth-shattering performance marking their first time in Perth last year, Chicago three piece Russian Circles will again be gracing our shores in 2012 - this time with another critically acclaimed release to their name.
A balancing act on a cosmic scale, Empros marries light to dark, order to chaos. Empros swings from the exceedingly beautiful to the punishingly physical in seconds flat. - Pitchfork
Following on from 2009's Geneva, Empros (Sargent House, 2011) expands on the band's more metallic influences whilst maintaining their completely unique musical identity. Think tranquil post-rock shattered with crunching basslines, meticulous drumming and adrenalised guitar overtones.
Salt Lake City sludge metal duo Eagle Twin will flesh out the bill with their lengthy instrumental passages and the gruff vocals of singer Gentry Densley. With debut album The Unkindness of Crows storming the aural cavities of doom and experimental fans in 2009, and the years since spent touring and performing alongside Southern Lord labelmates Earth, Sunn O))), Pelican and more, Eagle Twin are guaranteed to mesmerise and mind-blow.
The Unkindness of Crows is heavy and murky, slow and grinding, yet with deft chord progressions and impressive shifts in melody that illustrate a continuing desire to find new ways to express the infinite. - Music Emissions
Maximum volume ensures maximum results.
