Circus Maximus, “The Biggest Circus”, is back after a period of 4 years with their fourth album, Havoc, to create havoc. Circus Maximus have always been the talk of the metal industry since their debut album. Without any doubt, Havoc is a musical masterpiece that one would expect from Circus Maximus, just not of the expectations the band is famous for. Mats Haugen’s solos are more melodic and the riffs in ‘Havoc’ are more vile, rough and eclectic. Michael Eriksen’s voice is soothing as usual; the prose-type singing in the title track is something definitely to look forward to; a contender of “Best Album of 2016” lists. If you haven’t heard of Circus Maximus yet, ‘Havoc’ is the album you should start with and then move to the other album. The band has a reputation, and no one can falter that growth.
Metal Wani’s Editor In Chief Owais ‘Vitek’ Nabi had a chat with Circus Maximus‘ guitarist and chief songwriter Mats Haugen. He discusses new album ‘Havoc’, songwriting, musical direction as compared to first 3 albums & fan response to new singles released so far. Mats also talks about the evolution of the sound, why the band doesn’t want to recreate what’s already done & plans to tour extensively. Mats also throws light on releasing few singles this year and a possible new EP having songs written from the beginning of the career via their own label.
