Russian Circles - "Betrayal"
Russian Circles' music has never been one-note, but for years, the instrumental trio made albums that were reliable to reach for when you needed some epic post-metal to throw on and let your thoughts wander. Instrumental metal to study and relax to, perhaps. Well, you're not getting any work done when "Betrayal" is playing. The band's latest Gnosis single is gobsmackingly heavy from the jump, like a giant ball of fire rolling down a mountain that never slows down before it reaches the city below. Who needs zone-out music in times like these anyway?
