BOTANIST – Collective: The Shape Of He To Come

“The Shape of He to Come” is the first of the “Collective” series, meaning that it diverges from the model of Botanist studio albums as the result of Otrebor doing everything, and instead recording more like a full band with distributed responsibilities. “The Shape” stands as a testimonial to the work, time, and effort that six people put into rehearsing, touring, and composing from the years 2013-2016.

CIRCLE – Pori

Pori is much more than just the fifth studio album by the Finnish experimental-rock institution Circle. It’s also the name of a small post-industrial city near the Gulf of Bothnia, where Jussi Lehtisalo founded the group in 1991. In some senses, the music mirrors the character of the metropolis itself: tranquil, historic, and slightly monotonous but belied by grit, weirdness, and surprising artistic fertility.

When it initially appeared on the Metamorphos label in 1998, Pori represented the pinnacle of the band’s relatively subdued and polite mid-’90s output, summarizing and improving upon several years of dalliances with prog, electronic, and ambient aesthetics. For this conceptual suite of tracks titled for hometown monuments and events, Circle fused the aforementioned genres and sporadically jolted them with the higher voltage of its earliest efforts. Nowhere is this clearer than on the jackhammering, one-chord “Back to Pori,” powered by Lehtisalo’s Gregorian vocals and Janne Peltomäki’s immense, stuttering drums. Completely contrasting that, chamber pieces recorded inside Keski-Porin Kirkko, a nineteenth-century stone church, barely rise above a reverent whisper. From an instrumental standpoint, these sessions symbolized a finale of sorts; following their conclusion, bassist Tomi Harrivaara left the fold, Lehtisalo ceased playing guitar, and percussionist Ville Raitio subsequently withdrew. Yet Pori inaugurated a kind of rebirth, too; licensed abroad to Feldspar, an imprint affiliated with New York’s Knitting Factory club, it marked Circle’s full-length American debut and helped spawn the first of many U.S. tours.

Amazingly enough, this pivotal work has remained unavailable for at least a decade. Continuing with its gradual reissue campaign of Circle’s catalog, Ektro has given these compositions a second life on vinyl with the addition of superb bonus material. So regardless of whether you’re a total neophyte or an erudite curmudgeon, now is the time to do like the song says and go back—all the way back to Pori.

CIRCLE (EX-FALCON) – Leviatan

Finland’s avant-rock explorers, Circle are at it again. Just a few months after their brutal exploitation of the capitalistic mindset behind the super rock idiom, Circle plunge into the oceanic depths of true self-expression with their new album, Leviatan (released 2014). Combining acoustic instrumentation with, at times, menacing vocals, complete with looming space sounds captured by NASA, the album yields a timeless, yet distinctively archaic klang. The ritualistic conviction of the group becomes obvious as the gritty idiosyncracy of the album gradually unfolds into a journey through spiritual anarchism, leaving the listener baffled at the exacting abandonment of the ensemble.

FALCON (EX-CIRCLE) – Frontier

Foreshadowed by the hit single Beer and Ribs, FALCON (EX-CIRCLE) continue their ascent to rock ‘n’ roll heaven with their full-length debut, Frontier. With a dazzling array of textures and tempos, FALCON (EX-CIRCLE) take the listener on an instantly addicting journey through lazer-beamed AOR and soft rock, with more than a few nods to hot-rockin’ weekend rock. Stained-glass synths soar majestically across pulsing beats and power balladry, anthems for one and anthems for all, heading out on the highway with the top down and the sun in your eyes and the wind in your hair. Appropriately, the song titles themselves explore timeless themes like “Miami Tits,” “Vegas Sundown,” “Leather Seat,” “Ace of Hearts,” and of course the mandatory “Beer and Ribs.” This is music for the Everyman, and also for the greater good: unapologetically populist arena-sized sounds beamed in from outer space. Frontier will take you there; hitch a ride with FALCON (EX-CIRCLE).

GHASTLY – Death Velour

Ghastly are a new Finnish death metal band that honour the spirit of the old school Finnish death metal scene and spirit while at the same time creating something of a forward-thinking death metal album while embracing the old school vibe.  Almost kinda like Finland’s answer to Morbus Chron.

JESTERS OF DESTINY – The Sorrows That Refuse To Drown

It was 30 years ago that Jesters of Destiny’s Fun at the Funeral debut was released on the short-lived Metal Blade subsidiary Dimension Records. A year later, they released the all-covers record In a Nostalgic Mood, after which the band was unceremoniously hacked from the Metal Blade stable and, unable to land another deal for their third album, No Laughing Matter, they quietly disappeared, with all the main participants going on to other pursuits.  All these years later, Jesters of Destiny are back with The Sorrows That Refuse to Drown, an all-new record of the kind of hard rock/metal that only they made. This poses the question: Why? Bruce Duff and Ray Violet, the co-band leaders and production team behind everything the band recorded, are as perplexed as everyone else.

Inside this record, there is preserved a journey. An epic journey on this everflowing stream of Heavy Metal. The soul of this music is like a hidden valley in the flames of war.

This is the champion, the standard-bearer in these weary times. The New Wave of Great Heavy Metal.

MONUMENTUM – In Absentia Christi

The re-issue (via Avantgarde music, coincidentally owned by Monumentum mastermind R.M.) of one of the best and most cult albums to come out of Italy (initially released in 1995 on Misanthropy Records).  One of the best bands to emerge from the early ’90s black metal movement (they were initially supposed to be released by Euronymous’ Deathlike Silence Productions), Monumentum went on to create something that transcended the genre and went way beyond it.  Profound Lore has never re-issued any classic albums from the ancient glory days of the genre, but if we did this would have been one of them.

PHARAOH OVERLORD – Circle

Pharaoh Overlord’s Circle (from 2015) is bound to annul all expectations you ever held for these once avant-stoners. What’s clear is that Circle marks the fusion of Pharaoh Overlord with the namesake of this album.  On Circle, Pharaoh Overlord stand among their bling-blinded subjects as a modestly-clad emperor proud of the newly-discovered self-realization by means of merging with their idols and contestants (that is, Circle) into one abstract entity of sonic flesh. There is no sobriety like loss of identity.

PHARAOH OVERLORD – Horn (live)

Horn is a departure from the Lord’s trademark motorik doom-kraut style. This is nasty, noisy full-on art rock from the outer reaches of space, like early Sonic Youth tearing it up with Crazy Cavan & the Rhythm Rockers. The album includes four previously unheard Pharaoh Overlord compositions and a Spacemen 3 cover. Recorded live in Lahti, Finland 2011.

PHARAOH OVERLORD – Siluurikaudella

Something like this can only come from Finland. For fans of Circle (mind you Pharaoh Overlord are kinda in a way an alter-ego of Circle since it’s a Circle side-project that supposedly the same band members!), Pharaoh Overlord (who are on the Circle-based record label) play really elongated experimental songs of free-flow manic jamming fusing the likes of krautrock, ambient, and acid jazz all into an overbearing jumbled sound picture.
