Hear New Sound: Circle Takes the Square's Decompositions: Volume Number One

Forget the failed apocalypse -- It's a great day to be alive as a grindcore fan. After 8 grueling years of patiently waiting, Savannah-based screamers Circle Takes the Square are finally releasing the long overdue proper sophomore follow-up to their emotionally decimated 2004 debut As the Roots Undo. If you had your ears planted somewhere else during the mid-Aughties, CTTS is perhaps one of the most underrated and under-celebrated innovative post-hardcore bands of the past decade with a sound that coils chaotic influence from '90s scene luminaries pg. 99 and Orchid with modern slasher eulogies à la Thursday and KEN mode. So, yeah, this is a pretty big deal for those of us who've been quietly keeping our fingers crossed for this thing to finally drop! The arrival of the band's new LP coincides with today's date being that of the winter solstice, as Circle Takes the Square is choosing to offer up the entire thing as a pay-what-you-want download on their BandCamp page, with a physical release to follow in January via their own label, Gatepost Recordings. Longtime listeners might already be familiar with the first few tracks of Decompositions, as they were released as a limited EP last year. Sink your ears deep into Decompositions: Volume Number One below...
