Suicide Circle - Demo MMXX (2020)


Hailing from France, today we have a very disturbing duo playing Depressive Black Metal under the name Suicide Circle. Delivering around 26 minutes of music, this demo release is split in four punishing songs that draw more on the raw and dissonant side of the genre. If you are looking for oppressive atmospheres to drown your sorrows, this release certainly will help you.

Opening with “From the Void of their Mind”, the band sets a very raw and stripped down atmosphere with their riffs and harsh screams. There is absolutely no flair or gimmicks in the band’s sound, as the tracks in this release are quite direct, basic, and to the point. We appreciate how the band’s sound needs very minimal external elements aside from the furious guitars and hellish drumming, as “Prophet of Doomsday” lays waste to the listeners.

We particularly enjoy the excruciating and misery inducing “Funeral Wedding”, a track that slowly builds momentum and needs very little to create such a powerfully depressive atmosphere. This feeling nicely bleeds into the crushing “The Sphere of Chaos”, another mid tempo piece that is just raw and miserable. As a whole, “Demo MMXX” is a good primer into the band’s simple and yet highly effective sound. Suicide Circle’s strengths lie on their simplistic approach to the genre, making them one of the most direct and effective offerings in 2020.
