Finnish Genius

The heart of the New Wave Of Finnish Heavy Metal (also see Pharaoh Overlord & the superb Steel Mammoth), Circle sound different on every release of theirs I've heard. On this one blown-out electronics hum and ambient blips segue into glitch-shot, raging 80s-ish (check the bleak apocalyptic cover) hardcore punk and then back again over the course of 11 tracks; as always, Circle's take on a genre is weird and very enjoyable.

(due to my neanderthal-like incomprehension of moviemaker, the video is 1:00 longer than the actual song.)
