A child raised as a psychopath.
Could this be the subject of an album that rocks and intrigues in equal measures? The answer's a sinister 'yes', if the debut album from CIRCU5 is anything to go by.
If you're a fan of alt-rock bands like Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age, and progressive acts such as King Crimson, Rush and Yes, CIRCU5 should be in your collection. "The album mirrors the ups and downs in my life while making it," says Steve Tilling. "There were dark times, but everything ended positively. I wanted to make an album that's fun to listen to but has a good story for those who like to dig deeper."
Clues to the story are dotted throughout the album, but Steve is happy to give away the essence: "It traces the life of a child raised as a psychopath in a secret government organisation, which aims to cure the condition while harnessing positive traits for certain roles. The character discovers the truth as a dysfunctional adult – with catastrophic consequences."
