If you’re a fan of dramatic and sweeping post-metal/rock, then you owe it to yourself to listen to the new album from genre titans Russian Circles. Memorial has been eating up copious amounts of my listening time and I’m not sure I can pin point exactly why, it just seems to flow beautifully from one passage to the next, with each one being more lush and dense than the last. It’s music you can happily get lost in, I guess.
Enough of my uninteresting rambling though, the full stream is here courtesy of Pitchfork. I can’t see previous fans being disappointed in any way and I wouldn’t be surprised if this grabbed them a few new ones, because this might be a late contender to mess up some year end lists. Well, mine at least.
