Release Date:08/05/2016;Notes:With their sixth album Guidance, Russian Circles carry on in their quest to conjure multi-dimensional dramatic instrumental narratives and to scout out new textures from their respective instruments. Songs aren't constructed out of highbrow concepts they're forged out of gut instinct and base emotional response. Guidance continues the band's examination of the polarity of quiet and loud, complexity and simplicity, ugliness and beauty. Every Russian Circles album has had it's share of new sonic vistas, and Guidance finds the band still searching out new sounds while continuing to play to the collective strengths of guitarist Mike Sullivan, drummer Dave Turncrantz, and bassist Brian Cook. Starting with the meditative restraint of album opener "Asa", Guidance sets off on a path of metallic savagery ("Vorel", "Calla"), arpeggio tectonics ("Mota"), mercurial anthems ("Afrika"), somber segues ("Overboard"), and seismic Americana noir ("Lisboa"). With the help of engineer/co-producer Kurt Ballou and his God City Studio, Russian Circles were able to capture this broad tonal palette and wide array of emotional motifs into a cohesive journey through the tumultuous corners of human existence. Life itself is a struggle with the unknown and a search for meaning, and the creative process for Russian Circles has mirrored that pursuit. The radical dynamic shifts and straightforward production of Enter, the lockstep metallic attack and pensive comedowns of Station, the symphonic grandeur of Geneva, the grit and grime of Empros, and the oscillation between melancholy and wrath on Memorial were all incremental steps towards an ideal, and Guidance brings the band that much closer to that realization.;Track List:1.
