Circus Maximus is a Norwegian progressive metal quintet from Oslo. They employ the use of symphonic and power metal influences that feature synthesizers and occasional keyboards. As of 2012, they have released three albums, The 1st Chapter in 2005, Isolate in 2007 and Nine, in 2012.
Five years after the release of their second effort ‘‘Isolate’’, Circus Maximus has finally come back with a new album underarm that’s called ‘‘Nine’’.Last year Micheal Eriksen told us in an interview with PerfectProg that this album would have a total different sound… How will it be? There’s just one way to know it How will it be? That’s exactly what makes you wonder the first track ‘‘Forging’’, a mysterious intro that works as a curtain for the Nine’s show.When the curtain falls the ‘‘Architect of Fortune’’ arrives with a sound that would be perfect to open fires on live shows. It start with the heavier sound (even with a short flirtation with Djent) of the band but subtly gives way to a really well done melodic sound, especially on the chorus, and a great second verse where I cannot avoid to remember the best time of Queensrÿche.
