Circle II Circle – Seasons Will Fall (2013)



After 10 years of existence Circle II Circle released their sixth studio album Seasons Will Fall. With some line up changes, the band presents a more flexible album in which the sounds of progressive metal, hard rock, and heavy metal combined to bring to life a unique sound experience.

The album opens with Diamond Blade, a very complex progressive song full of catchy riffs and really good melodic sections. Without A Sounds, is a more rebellious hard rock song with a punchy guitar structure, and a strong drum pattern. Killing Death, presents itself as one of the heaviest and fastest songs on this album in which the voice of Zak Stevens is challenged by the very melodic demand of the song, definitely one of my favorite songs on this record. Epiphany, is a more hard rock ballad full of great riffs and a nice melodic touch that made it really catchy at the time to listen to it. End Of Emotion is a song that builds up its moment by using different types of riffs and melodic patters that made it a very long progressive song, plus the guitar solo in the middle section of it’s just gold.

Dreams That Never Die, is another fast song with a great melody and a great vocal work by Zak that left me speechless at times. Seasons Will Fall, the title track of the album, is more like an easy listen song. Not strong but not weak, that it could feel like a ballad at times, if it wasn’t for the guitar work on it which is just ridiculously good. Never Gonna Stop, is my second favorite song of this album. Really heavy, great riffs, and the flow of it is just so great to head bang to it. Isolation and Downshot are a couple of power ballads with a really nice keyboard and acoustic guitar sections, and a really beautiful lyrical content.

Sweet Despair, is a strong song full of powerful vocal parts, and a great melodic guitar work. Only Yesterday closes the album with a bang, really strong riff that are melodic and catchy at the same time. Circle II Circle, indeed exceeded their potential, and challenged their capabilities to the most on this record. A great hard rock album full of heavy riffs, high note vocals, and a pure rocking attitude all around it. One of the greatest albums to begin this 2013 no doubt. Now I am more than excited to see them play some of this material live.
