Callenish Circle - _Escape_
(Polar Bear, 1998)
by: Paul Schwarz (7 out of 10)
This is quite a decent EP from a band I have never heard of -- I am assuming this is one of their first releases. With that in mind, I must say I was quite impressed. _Escape_ reminds me of Mexico's Agony Lords and of the best parts of _The Karellian Isthmus_ era Amorphis. They combine atmosphere and keyboards with some death metal and folk tinged riffs and round it off with decent growled vocals. However, the synth ridden second track really adds nothing to the record. Though not astounding in their originality, Callendish Circle display a fair amount of skill and plenty of potential for development which they can exploit.
