No matter how much stock we put on what’s inside, first impressions count. For former Future Hits subjects, Circles, their last EP The Compass established them as an earthier Periphery, sort of a Pendulum-y djent or a prog Enter Shikari with more bass-dropping. So, when their debut album Infinitas kicks off with flute, soft vocals and spine-chilling bar chimes, alongside one of the most triumphant anti-hero lead-offs you’ll hear in 2013, you get the sense someone wants a do-over.

Future Hits 089: Circles

Circles
From: Melbourne, Australia
Lazy Equation: Finch + SiKth

Thrash Hits Verdict:
Remember that time Basick Records released a bad record? Yeah, we don’t either. Circles are from Australia and they fit solidly into the Basick blueprint of brilliant melodic technical metal. There are hints of Incubus and Finch about the vocals and masses of SiKth and Meshuggah about the riffs. Basickally (LOL, sorry), they’re bloody good.

After we reminded him the next morning afternoon, he agreed again. Here it is. He’s kicking off with explanations, complaints and shit jokes. Class.

Progtology with James Monetieth Thrash Hits

Hello, I’m James and I play guitar in prog metal – or as we’re more commonly called – “djent” band Tesseract.

First off, let’s get the djent thing out of the way, which I guess I must address, given the column name. There’s a lot of division in our community of bands and critics about this word, whether it’s: truely representative of the overall sound; a gimmick, or just plain stupid.
