Russian Circles

 

Take instrumental post-rock and metal ideas and textures, mix them altogether and you get Russian Circles, a three piece instrumental rock/metal band from Chicago. Formed in late 2004 by guitarist Mike Sullivan and bassist Colin DeKuiper (both formerly of instrumental band Dakota/Dakota), they quickly recruited drummer Dave Turncrantz, formerly of St. Louis band Riddle of Steel. Their name is taken from a drill exercise used in the game of ice hockey.
