Preview: Russian Circles, The Haunt, October 24

The brutal math-metal revolution of Russian Circles marches into Brighton on a seditious mission to take over your mind. The Chicago trio create a ruthless mix of instrumental guitar noodling, riff heavy, bone shaking bass and huge drops that make you want to break stuff (Limp Bizkit Woodstock 1999 anyone…?) Forget the ridiculous title of post-metal they are often given, the Royal Mail would collapse under the weight of such absurditity.
Touring the forthcoming release of their fifth studio album, Memorial on Sargent House, the band’s sound has come a long way from their debut Enter; more mellow sections, and even more bombastic build ups. Unlike many post rock bands with their eight minute build ups and five minute build downs (Cough. Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Cough.), their sound never becomes boring. Be sure to also check out their pedal boards. They have more pedals than you can stomp a foot at.
Pull your old Tool hoodie out the back of the cupboard and get in the pit. Just be ready to explain to your girlfriend why you have a black eye the next day.
