Chicago trio Russian Circles return with their fourth album – Empros . As with 2009’s Geneva, the album was produced by Brandon Curtis (Secret Machines, Interpol) at Chicago’s Phantom Manor Studio. The band picks up where the anthemic riffs and melodies of Geneva left off and injects evermore slithering rhythms amid skull-crushing heft with all the visceral intensity of Godflesh, Swans and Neurosis. Put simply, Empros is Russian Circles’ Master of Reality: a radical revision of both heavy and melody that is monolithic in its clarity and perfection.
