It's been nearly 20 years since we last had a full-length album from Ramleh operating in "rock" mode, but the sprawling new double album "Circular Time" sees these British noise rock legends returning with their most intense work since re-emerging in recent years.

One of the key bands to emerge from the British post-industrial underground of the early 1980's alongside their Broken Flag label-mates Skullflower, Ramleh continually shifted between the extreme, confrontational power electronics of their early material and their later forays into searing, lysergic noise rock, right up until the band went on an extended hiatus in the late 1990's.

With this massive album, these distortion masters - Gary Mundy (Kleistwahr, S.P.I.T.E.), Anthony Di Franco (AX, JFK, Ethnic-Acid), and Martyn Watts (Breathless) - have returned with nearly two hours of speaker-shredding, void-gazing psychedelia, pushing the pummeling, Hawkwindian meltdowns heard on classic 90's-era albums like Be Careful What You Wish For and Shooters Hill into realms of total obliteration. It's dark, often brutal music, shot through with moments of sweeping, apocalyptic beauty. 6-panel digisleeve.
