(Ektro, Pori / Helsinki)
Finland’s cult band # 1, Circle, is blasting the New Wave of Finnish Heavy Metal (NWOFHM) on European club and festival stages again!
Their extraordinary amalgamation of kraut-, psychedelic, math- and hard rock influences will blow your mind, you should make sure to catch one of the seven-piece's equally explosive and hypnotic concerts. Sweden's leading daily newspaper Dagens Nyheter called them "the world's best band - all categories", reviewing their much-celebrated 2011 appearance at Roskilde Festival. To guarantee maximum diversity, Circle can be also booked as their evil stoner rock alter ego, Pharaoh Overlord, or (for handpicked shows) together with their British mate, Newcastle's king of weird, Richard Dawson. Dawson's and Circle's collaborative album "Henki" on Domino is currently making a lot of waves and will be presented live at some of Europe's most important summer festivals.
