"Recorded at God City Studios by Kurt Ballou (Converge), "Our Circle Is Vicious" is Rise And Fall's return as the kings of dark, ominous hardcore. From the opening barrage of "Soul Slayer" and "Built On Graves" the evolution of Rise And Fall is stunning. Heavier and harder than ever, it is apparent that every aspect of their game has grown leaps and bounds in recent years. Guitarist Cedric Goetgebuer balances bone shattering heaviness and unorthodox melodies unlike any other musician today. Bringing each song to post-apocalyptic life with an electrifying intensity. All of this is complimented by Bjorn Dossche's emotional vocal outpouring as it spills across the album. They continue this battery throughout, however it's when they unleash the dynamic "In Circles" and epic closer "Knowing" that the true scope of their vision sinks in. Both songs are utterly haunting in their unique twists and turns. Blurring the divisions and dismissing the limitations that exist within much of contemporary heavy music."
