Circle Takes The Square are a band from Georgia that plays a mixture of screamo, experimental, punk and grindcore and this is a review of their 2012 album "Decompostions: Volume One" which was released by Gatepost Records.
Drums range from slow to mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being present on this recording, while the keyboards bring a very experimental sound to the recording, as for the bass playing it has a very and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine screamo, grind, punk and experimental together to create a sound of their own with some soft and clean playing, as for the lead guitars they are very melodic sounding guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic they use finger picking and full chords to add more experimental elements to the music as well as some guitar slides.
Vocals range from deep grindcore growls, screamo style shouts, punk rock vocals, clean singing and spoken word parts, while the lyrics cover everyday and philosophical themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Circle Takes A Square are a very great sounding hybrid of screamo, grind, punk and experimental and if you are a fan of t his musical genre, you should check out this band.
