.....this band have the potential to be utterly amazing.
They're another band I keep meaning to listen to but haven't yet had the chance to. They're playing in Hitchin soon and am tempted to go along.
Russian Circles. They were really good last night. I thoroughly enjoyed their set.
at a lot of points they sound like Battles.
I did an interview with them and they basically said Russian Circles and Battles are the main bands they get compared to, but this is a good thing.
...so yeah russian circles/battles - but with some sweet big riffs and loads of energy, and Wills drumming is an absolute treat in this band - its like he has been unleased post-IWACS
I thought the RC comparison was accurate. Sure, I could've mentioned that some of the drumming sounds Battles-esque, but I think the overal sound is far more RC than Battles.
Either way, I agree that it is definitely a good thing. They sound ace. Looking forward to hearing more from them for sure.
EVERYONE gets compared to Russian Circles
you should try harder to find a lesser known band to compare them to next time
just in that it's kind of "hmmm mathy? Ding! Battles!"
All good comparisons for sure though
