Circle of Fate's New Album Coming in June
"In my opinion, the new material sort of goes back to our 'Inner Sanctum' album," adds Danny, "which really focuses on melodies and amazing vocal lines, but this time with a punchy edge to it. We were able to blend Michele's melodies and vocals with punctuating dynamics and edgy guitar riffs. The new material is also a touch more commercial than 'Back to Life' with its melodies and vocals but still maintains an edge with the dynamic drums and bass and in your face guitar riffs."
Producer Eric Greedy, who has worked with such music legends as Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Elton John, Steven Tyler, Brian Wilson, Rage Against The Machine, Guns &Roses (the list goes on and on), produced two songs on the new CD. Also, formerly from Slash's Snakepit, Matt Laug played drums on the two tracks. Both cuts were mastered by industry legend Big Bass Brian, who's impressive list of clients include the likes of Alice Cooper, Black Eyed Peas, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Grateful Dead, Hall &Oates and Kiss, just to name a few.
Circle of Fate have recently been working with renown Chicago photographer Dan Machnik, who has taken photos of such notable musicians as Scott Ian of Anthrax, Sonny Mayo of Sevendust, Benji Madden of Good Charlotte, Dope, CJ Pierce of Drowning Pool. Greg Tribbett of Mudvayne/Hell Yeah, Ty Tabor of Kings, Dan Donegan of Disturbed, Broken Vegas, Joe Trohman of Fall Out Boy and many more.
In support of Circle of Fate's previous release 'Back To Life' the band has been performing extensively over the past year. The group has recently signed with Almost Famous Booking and are planning a major US tour upon release of their new album this summer. COF's next show is on May 1st at Tiger O'stylies in Berwyn, IL.
Last years break-out CD by Chicago's own melodic rock band Circle of Fate has captured the attention of the music public at large and the response has been no less than astounding. Described as "Pop rock with metal undertones", Circle of Fate's latest CD 'Back To Life' is an amalgamation of catchy melodies and hooky rhythms. Produced by Larry Sturm, who has worked with top music artists such as Destiny's Child, Mary J. Blige and Disturbed, and who has said of Circle of Fate's new single, " 'My Religion' has all of the ingredients of a hit song!" With the airplay the song has been receiving, Larry Strum was right on the mark!
"The reviews to the CD are phenomenal!," says lead vocalist Michele Caruso. "I knew the songs were awesome but you never know in the music industry what the critics are going to say. It is very humbling to hear such great reviews from your peers and since the reviews were so good, I can't wait to let them hear our next one! It has justified to me that we as a band can write great songs that hit home with our fans and now with the critics. Circle of Fate is a band to look out for!" "It's very exciting," adds guitarist Danny Charatin. "We had a feeling when we recorded it that the CD sounded really good but it's never fully tested until you put it out there and wait for a response. The response has been great and we've been gaining new fans around the world!"
