Lehtisalo, Jussi – “Interludes For Prepared Beast” – [Full Contact]
Droning, fading, hypnotic metal from the founder of Circle solo in 2012. Side A moans and scrapes and struggles on between sparse scraps of riffage. Cowering and slinking between cover as a great winged predator passes overhead. Safety is true but temporary by definition. Ends roghly where it started but feelings of loss nonethless. Side B is where the real spiral downward to the circle of eternal return happens. Nonstop guitars and electronics and cute beeps steadily build together under significant vocal urging. Both sides blossom into true brilliance shortly before ending, only imparting their gift once you’re nice and abluted.
