Finland’s top cult band Circle, in a move that for them seems almost boringly logical, signed with the well known US experimental metal label Southern Lord. You wouldn’t expect them to change their irreverent ethos too much though.

Still, “Terminal” finds them at the height of their powers, fusing krautrock’s repetition, high voltage riffs, theatrical vocals and a whole lot of unexpected twists and turns.

It’s an astonishing feat, but it’s apparently their 52nd album that might be the best yet to capture the infectious energy of their famed live performances.
