Instrumental hard rock band Russian Circles have shared the first single from their upcoming sixth studio album, Guidance. Listen to the punishing "Vorel" above, via the YouTube account of record label Sargent House.
Bassist Brian Cook spoke with Rolling Stone about the track:
All our songs fluctuate between trying to wrangle some sort of order out of ugliness and rendering some sort of beauty out of existential despair, and we usually wind up touching upon both approaches within any given song... I suppose "Vorel" leans a little heavier towards the former.
A sense of despair can be felt in the song's mood with its floor-shaking drums and doom sounding guitar riffs. It's hard, it's loud, and it should be cranked up to ELEVEN! (Zumic is not responsible if you blow out your speakers).
Guidance is scheduled to be released on August 5, 2016 through Sargent House Records. Pick it up at the Russian Circles' webstore.
