Circus Maximus

Circus Maximus is a Norwegian band looking to make their mark on the melodic progressive metal scene, a crowded scene to be sure but one that continues to thrive. The influences and soundalikes are familiar (bands like Dream Theater and Symphony X come to mind), and while these guys aren't in the superstar category, all the pieces are in place, from expert musicianship that isn't overdone, to solid production efforts, and a standout vocalist in Michael Eriksen. The 1st Chapter, the first of their three albums to date, is a solid debut effort, and Circus Maximus look set to challenge Pagan's Mind for the title of Norway's top prog metal band.
