Circus Maximus heaviest prog. record yet!

Guys.. You just have to check out this album..

This guy I know Mats, and his band mates in CM, are releasing their new album.
I am actually very impressed by the album, and have been waiting to tell you, now that it has been released.

In one way it's a typical "7 string" prog band, in another way they take on a few other instruments, making the range very high.

Here's the official trailer from the record C.

Check them out on spotify.

I am so proud of them

I love this band! I've owned 1st chapter and Isolate for a while now. Great musicians with a killer vocalist. Looking forward to "Nine" as well.

I'm normally not into stuff like this, but they are really good. I liked the posted video very much. Cool band. Great guitar work/tone.

Thanks for the heads-up! I somehow thought the album wouldn't be out for a while.

Spotify has it already up for listening too.
