Norwegian Progressive Metal Masters CIRCUS MAXIMUS Return With Havoc! Their Fourth Studio Album Out in March on Frontiers!

CM
Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce all details of Havoc, the eagerly anticipated new album from CIRCUS MAXIMUS, due for release on March 18, 2016.
Havoc is CIRCUS MAXIMUS’ highly anticipated fourth studio album and one that will certainly make a huge impact on the Progressive Metal scene. The band’s musical formula is not easy to pull off. Take jaw-dropping musicianship, singer Michael Eriksen with a voice from the heavens and put it together with hooks, anthemic melodies, and enough groove and heavy riffing to satisfy any prog metal fan, and you’ve got the CIRCUS MAXIMUS sound.
“The theme on this new album is about moments and experiences in life that lead to love and hate,” says guitarist and producer Mats Haugen. “Metaphorically, it’s about succumbing to fire and striving to cope with the aftermath of decisions when overshadowed by the love we have for others and ourselves.”
Musically the band offers the usual mixture of very heavy moments intertwined with extremely accessible melodies. Songs like “Pages”, the opener “The Weight”, “After the Fire” and “Remember” show the full range of the CIRCUS MAXIMUS sound. Still, the album has very heavy songs (“Havoc”) and slow and melodic moments (“Loved Ones”) too.
The band is set to tour heavily in support of this new release with shows in Europe, US (they are already confirmed for the ProgPower Festival) and more territories to come.
The re-defining sound, the songwriting and the clever production, highlights the band as one of the leading, original Progressive-Metal bands around.
