Russian Circles live at Sun Flower Hall Petaling Jaya 12 October 2012






FLAWLESS! Itu tanggapan pertama aku lepas menonton show dari Russian Circles. Aku tak pernah dengar tentang band ini sehingga 2 minggu lepas. Ambum ‘Empros’ pun aku hanya dengar melalui salinan digital yang aku download. First impression; band ni memang sedap for a heavy post rock instrumental triplet. Lately aku lebih ke arah death metal padat (ikut mood sebenarnya) and I guess it is also good to be open to different stuff at times. Instrumental Russian Circles bukan jenis boring. Groovy, catchy dan at times, heavy. I was looking forward to a great deal of awesomeness when I knew I am going to see these guys, live.

Ternyata tanggapan aku betul. Russian Circles kill!. Venue yang kecil, padat dan very well sound proofed, lebih memeriahkan suasana. Band yang paling dekat genre nya aku pernah tengok live sebelum Russian Circle, mungkin Baroness. Memandangkan banyak riff mereka ini mengenangkan aku pada Baroness. Mungkin Baroness a step lower than these guys in terms of showing tight live vibrance. Russian Circles tidak menawarkan sebarang vokal dalam persembahan mereka, tapi mereka menawarkan a great deal of music to do the talking. 

Setting gitar dan bass bukan calang-calang untuk band yang ‘letting the music do the talking’. Setting drum kit yang minimal, ditambah lagi dengan setting stage yang ‘dark’ dan minimal, sangat memberangsangkan suasana malam itu. Aku dah lama tak pergi show, bila pergi yang ni, rasa macam pergi show Krisiun pulak dek drumming yang intense, gitar play yang flawless dan bass play yang aggressive. Great sound overall, I kid you not.

To sum up, it was an awesome 1 hour 15 minute show (with 1 encore). Aku tak pasti apa set list untuk show ini. Show sangat minimalistic, no opening band, no vocal, but intense heavy music. For those who are looking for a great heavy instrumental music, I would recommend you to listen to Russian Circles. 

9/10

maknanya band ini memainkan genre sludge with a little bit of prog rock seperti Baroness dgn Mastodon la?cuma diorg ni more to instrumental....nice...nanti cari diorg punya mp3

@Adi Herman : genre bending jugaklah RC ni. ada satu masa dalam album Geneva ada satu trek yang macam post rock jiwang jepun Mono. but they get heavier dalam album baru, Empros. paling dekat mungkin dalam liga 'a thinking man's metal' bawah label Hydrahead (geng Isis). ambik contoh : Pelican - 'Drought'. Saya pernah tengok satu video live Isis dan atmosferanya hampir sama dgn RC secara live, kecuali tanpa vokal.
