Circle Takes The Square
Circle Takes The Square (Robotic Empire)

By: Jeb Branin

Wow. Not only does this CD have some first rate packaging, the music is an absolute tornado of sound and emotion. If you dig down to the roots of CIRCLE TAKES THE SQUARE you have very angry, dual vox, punk rock fury. Maybe something like BLATZ. But, admittedly, the roots are barely visible here. Complex layers flesh this out immensely. For example, you can't ignore the plentiful screemo here. Or the AmRep influenced noise. Or the experimental holocaust of hardcore ala RUINS or even MELT BANANA. In the end CIRCLE TAKES THE SQUARE is a densely textured yet very harsh adventure in hardcore. You'll have to have an open mind to appreciate it, but you also better enjoy a high quota of chaos.
