For the occasion of the release of their new “We Will Remain” EP (available here: alfamatrix.bandcamp.com/album/we-will-remain-ep ) and to celebrate CIRCUMPOLAR’s signing to the Alfa Matrix label, we also decided to re-release the debut EP “Until The End Of Time” that the band had self-released in early 2019.
These first 4 songs are inspired by ancient rites and metaphors of the perpetual cycles of the stars, the sun and the moon and life in general. And they already clearly reflect CIRCUMPOLAR’s core influences, taking inspirations from 80`s bands like SKINNY PUPPY, THE KLINIK, FRONT 242, SISTERS OF MERCY or yet FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM.
The sounds and voices evoke haunting memories and nightmares from the darkest mists of our lives, reassembling into blistering lights of eternal desires. “Out of the dark, into the light, out of the light, into the dark, again…Fearless”.
No surprise that this great EP triggered the interest of a renowned label like Alfa Matrix, home of bands like FRONT 242, MENTALLO & THE FIXER, STAR INDUSTRY or yet UNTER NULL. And the best is yet to come!
“When the time is right, we will follow the sun, when the time is right, we will live forever… “
