Ghettoblaster Magazine Sits Down w/ Mike Sullivan (2012)



Russian Circles released their most recent album, Empros, last October via Sargent House and it was a barn burner.  Empros picked up where the anthemic riffs and melodies of 2009’s Geneva left off and injected evermore slithering rhythms amid skull-crushing heft with all the visceral intensity of Godflesh, Swans and Neurosis. For all intents and purposes, it was a radical revision of both heavy and melody that is monolithic in its clarity and perfection.  Coupled with an unparalleled live show that is as masterful as the album it supports, Russian Circles have been road warriors in 2012 in support of the fantastic effort.   

Ghettoblaster asked guitarist Mike Sullivan what he’s been enjoying this year.  Here are his favorites: 

Swans – The Seer 

Chelsea Wolfe – Unknown Rooms 

Beak – >> 

God Seed – I begin 

Black Breath – Sentenced to Life 

Gaza – No Absolutes in Human Suffering 

Beach House – Bloom 

Tame Impala – Lonerism 

Earth – Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light II 

Disappears – Pre-Language

    I was just introduced to your music by a friend online, and I'm completely blown away. I LOVE your sound, it's AMAZING. Russian Circles is by far the best instrumental band I've ever had the pleasure of consuming. I can't say I "just listen" to the music, I feel it deep down in my core. It fills my head with various images and emotions, from soothing, soft, melodic tones one minute to "hell yeah!" rockin' out, fist pumpin', head bangin' the next. I'm going to spread your music across -my- circles and hope my contribution gives some kind of boost to your fame. You guys are so talented and work so hard (it really shows in your music), I really want you to succeed in spreading to the whole world so everyone has the chance to feel the way I do right now.
