DARK CIRCLES: MMXIV: LP

Sep 18, 2015

Dark Circles are from Montreal but sound like gnarly Netherlands metal. The vocals are crusty as hell and there are a lot of d-beat drums, but I like that the guitars have more of a punk sound to them, like on “Distress.” The guitar gets a bit thin and jagged, leaning towards post-punk. Songs like “Darkness Purveyor” start with a more traditional punk rock drum and bass intro and go into a slower (for them), more driving song. Most of their songs are around the two-minute mark, which is perfect for me. Less leaves you wanting more. Great packaging, great record.
