Russian Circles - Memorial (2013)

Perhaps the most immediately apparent characteristic of the fifth Russian Circles album, "Memorial", is its wide range of emotion. Vacillating from somber-yet-soaring melodies on one track to pummeling metal heft on the next, Memorial sounds like an album with split personalities. "We've always tried to balance our metal-influenced sounds with more nuanced, pretty, orchestral elements," Cook says. But this time, it's far more polarized in that the heavy parts are much more blown-out and exaggerated while the pretty moments are far more restrained, delicate, and atmospheric.
