Circle Takes The Square - As The Roots Undo (2004)

[will upload higher bitrate if requested.]

I never considered myself a fan of screamo. Thrash metal, maybe. Grindcore, on occasion. Circle Takes The Square made me love all of them, together at least. They take one part Pg. 99, stir in some City of Caterpillar, and add a female for awesome duet singing/skramz which fills in more than you'd think. As the Roots Undo will hit you with a br00tal Pig Destroyer verse and follow up with a sing-a-long. They're so dynamic, you might call them post-rock.

Your friends will envy your new pretentious music!

    Zac...they broke up :-(

    Amazing awesome from start to finish. The lyrics are the most amazing part of this album. Anyone know what projects they did after this?

    CTTS is not dead. They have been in the process of writing new material for their new album, Decompositions, for quite some time. There is a new-ish song posted on their myspace titled Ritual Of Names that is supposedly going to be on their sophomore album.

    this is NOT powerviolence.
    listen to more SPAZZ, dude. that's powerviolence.

    anyway, i'd say that if bright eyes was a hardcore band, it'd sound like CTTS.

    got to see them play quite a few times years ago with bands like i would set myself on fire for you, blame game, etc.
