Track Of The Day: Circle II Circle
Circle II Circle, the band led by former Savatage vocalist Zak Stevens, release new album Consequence Of Power through AFM on September 27. And they provide the latest Track Of The Day. Check out all the Tracks Of The Day.
This is the band’s fifth album since their formation in 2003, and it’s conceptual. Says Stevens of the storyline: “Just read the booklet. It’s very different. Much like the other albums offer their own differences in sound, this one is doing the same. In my view, some of the new stuff is revisiting the ‘traditional’ rock song arrangements that will take us back a chapter or two in time while others are more basic in scheme. My role, as with all our records, is to make the overall picture appeal to today’s rock listener from a vocal standpoint with the best effort I can, hook after hook coming at you full blast, and you’ll seek out the story as you move throughout the record….. It’s a complicated and very deep concept about things happening that we don’t really have much control of, and about a character who is centrally involved, against his will, in particular; how he’s dragged into this cycle of madness, power, and a lot of crazy things”.
Joining the singer on the album are guitarist Andy Lee, bassist Mitch Stewart and drummer Johnny Osborn. The band have European shows lined up for next month. But, sadly the UK won’t get a chance to hear their fast rising brand of melodic power metal.
However, as something of a strong consolation, you can now download the song Mirage for free right here.
