Circle Takes the Square

Circle Takes the Square (often abbreviated CTTS) is a band from Savannah, Georgia, USA. The band formed in 2001 as a four-piece and after their first two releases they lost a guitarist but gained another in late 2004. What listeners tend to notice first about the band is the loud screaming of both male and female vocals that often function in a kind of call and response. Skillful, chaotic drumming coupled with intense, highly technical bass/guitar work have served to separate the band from most others in the screamo genre.

Callisto

There is more than one artist with this name. 1) Callisto is a Finnish experimental metal band (Turku, Finland 2001-present). Trying to fit the post-metal outfit Callisto into one single category hardly does the band justice. Founded in 2001, the sextet play a timeless, downbeat yet melancholic style of music that is rich in nuances, draws from numerous sources and doesn't really have any obvious fellow creatures or points of comparisons.

Distophia

Unfortunately, Distophia have decided to call it day. They will have a new band at some point in the future but Distophia is now officially over. This means that Distophia are not set to return this year with “Beat Dyslexia”, their debut full-length and the album the Birmingham-based noise-rock/lo-fi four-piece had always dreamed of making. Spurred on by the rise of the manufactured alternative and seeking to fight the encroaching apathy which genuinely left-field music currently experiences...

LabRat

Once upon a time, in Jersey in the Channel Islands, four pieces of scum, bound together by circumstances not beyond their control, hatched a hideous, diabolical plan to fuck with peoples heads by defiling the conventions of modern music through dischordance, non-existant chord-progressions and irregular tempo changes. Relocating to London and SICK of constantly seeing bands around them pathetically trying to pander to the whim of the masses, our four fuckwits locked themselves in the unused function room of a South-East London pub and went to work...
