Circle II Circle is a band that had resisted the test of time, and the shift of line ups. Founded back in 2001 by Zak Stevens after he left Savatage. Circle II Circle had become an icon in American heavy metal by consistently releasing new and interesting material, and keeping the spirit of Savatage alive.
This year the band is releasing their 6th studio album Seasons Will Fall, with a new musical prospective, but keeping intact the sound that characterize Circle II Circle. After a successful appearance at the well-known Wacken Open Air festival in Germany last year, that was follow by a European tour, and closed with their first presentation in Dubai (UAE) last November. Circle II Circle is now ready to conquer the world once again by releasing Seasons Will Fall their new album, and the plans of a tour that will include a special tribute to Savatage‘s Edge Of Thorns.
