English:

Bang! That was the sound of my jaw dropping to the floor. Two years ago my brother gave me a cd by a new progressive metal band from Norway named CIRCUS MAXIMUS. Their first album was called '1st Chapter', and it was a great debut, although the compositions were not all equally inspiring. Fast-forward 24 months, and their second release 'Isolate' is spinning in my cd player. And boy, was I completely awestruck!

Everything from '1st Chapter' is here; the impressive voice of Michael Eriksen, the incredible overall sound and the amazing wizardry of the musicians. This time, however, the songs really connect. From the first notes of 'A Darkened Mind', over the beautiful power-ballad 'Zero' to the 12-minute epic 'Mouth Of Madness', each and every song grabs you and doesn't let go. When the final tones of 'Ultimate Sacrifice' fade away, you'll be racing to the cd player to hit the repeat button.

Every fan of melodic progressive metal should rush out and buy a copy of 'isolate' from CIRCUS MAXIMUS', especially if you're into SYMPHONY X, SHADOW GALLERY or QUEENSRYCHE. This is legendary stuff, you're going to cherish this album for a very long time. Awsome!


Nederlands:

Bonk! Viel ik me daar even stijl achterover. Twee jaar geleden kreeg ik van m'n broer een cd van een nieuwe progressieve metal band uit Noorwegen genaamd CIRCUS MAXIMUS. Hun eerste plaat was '1st Chapter', en het was een geweldig debuut, hoewel de composities niet allemaal even interessant waren. We zijn nu 24 maanden later, en hun tweede release 'Isolate' zit in mijn cd-speler. Man, ik was serieus met stomheid geslagen!

Alles van '1st Chapter' is aanwezig; de indrukwekkende stem van Michael Eriksen, de ongelooflijke, strakke sound en het perfecte spel van de muzikanten. Deze keer slagen de composities echt aan. Vanaf de eerste noten van 'A Darkened Mind', via de mooie power-ballad 'Zero' en het 12-minuten durende epos 'Mouth Of Madness', word je gegrepen en niet meer losgelaten. Wanneer de laatste tonen van 'Ultimate Sacrifice' wegsterven, zal je onmiddellijk naar de cd-speler spurten om op de repeat-knop te drukken.

Iedere fan van melodische progressieve metal zou dadelijk naar de winkel moeten hollen om deze cd te kopen, vooral als je houd van SYMPHONY X, SHADOW GALLERY of QUEENSRYCHE. 'Isolate' van CIRCUS MAXIMUS is een legendarische plaat, die je nog héél erg lang zult koesteren. Ontzagwekkend!
