Circledown is an Atlantic City-based outfit whose proclivity for making modern melodic metal places an emphasis on hooky vocal lines on their four-track EP MOBIUS. Meshing the rage of Mudvayne with the catchiness of Chevelle (“Half-Step”), this unit’s metallic heartbeat is accompanied by an electronic pulse adding radio friendly consistency to the entire affair (“Crash”). While Circledown uses all of the tools of the trade wisely, they also write solid songs that never sound blatantly ripped-off despite obvious influences of nu metal and rapcore roaming about. Packing more aggression into their music than your average modern metal band while towing the commercial rock line allows this EP to get a leg up on the like-minded pack and ultimately make this unit one to watch for fans of Sevendust, Static-X and the like.
