Artist: Circa Survive
Genre: Progressive Rock, Experimental
Label: Sumerian Records
On their fifth full-length, Descensus, Circa Survive have reinvented themselves with staggering efficiency, resulting in their most abrasive, well-rounded attempt to date. A stark divergence from 2012’s Violent Waves, the ten-track effort is laden with the same soaring intricacies that fans have grown to love, only this time around, they are implemented with a unified sense of purpose. Introspective and upfront, it is a perfect blend of all the band’s past embodiments, littered with enough nuance to keep you on the edge of your seat.
