It’s a huge pleasure to announce that ”Chapter 2: The Accident” by Soniq Circus is out NOW on your favourite streaming platforms!!
This release continues the story that started on last year’s ”Chapter 1: The Game Begins”, where a bunch of people met on a cruise, and weird things started to happen after being invited to a game of cards by a mysterious being.
Chapter 2 starts with a short mood setting piece, leading us onto ”The I of the Storm” which was recently released as a single due to it’s relative directness, powerful melodies and solid rock riffs. Things get even heavier in the 8,5 minute long ”The Accident” though, which showcases Soniq Circus at it’s heavy best with some powerful drumming. The card players start to realize that the game is linked to the fate of not only themselves but of the whole ship. The storm – or the mysterious card dealer – or a drunk captain somehow causes an accident.
Another little epic, 8 minute ”Achilles Down” follows in the same direction with plenty of well crafted parts that mix creative prog parts in odd time signatures, strong vocals and solos that are linked together by the story of the cruise ship sinking due to the accident. ”In mental rust” is basically a fun instrumental ride down the ocean where the band continues to play until the very end.
Fans of Soniq Circus, A.c.t, Saga, Spock’s Beard, City Boy, Vulkan, Dream Theater or simply good progressive rock should check this out!!
