CIRCUS MAXIMUS
THE 1ST CHAPTER
SENSORY

Norwegian prog metallers Circus Maximus have a darker aura than most other bands in their genre, shown throughout the entire 70 minutes of THE 1ST CHAPTER. This quintet utilize much of the same technique of bands like Symphony X and Dream Theater, yet go the extra mile to include downright nasty riffs a la Meshuggah and Nevermore-esque vocalizations on tracks like “Sin” and “Biosfear” to enhance their ominous mystique. If prog metal seems a bit too Broadway musical-esque for your tastes, perhaps a sample of this outfit’s mind-bendingly molten metal assault laden with all of those prog metal devices will peak your waning interest.
