CIRCLE OF EYES is the ambient doom project from SUTEKH HEXEN's Kevin Gan Yuen and NECRITE's Thrull. This recording also features vocals by James Rauschemburgh from SWAMP WITCH and YOUR ENEMY.
With three mammoth tracks that spread over 37 minutes, this recording is mastered by James Plotkin specifically for vinyl. The artwork and design was executed by Kevin Gan Yuen with help from Stephen Wilson for an 18” x 24” fold-out poster and Icelandic (by way of Sweden) artist and musician Jóhannes Gunnar Þorsteinsson (Ziz) for the insert photography. The jackets are a tip-on style, single sleeve jacket printed from Stoughton Printing Company, black dust sleeves, a three button set that’s housed in a black zip lock bag, and a download card to redeem the entire recording which also includes the re-mastered 2009 demo as an added bonus... all inclusive, 90:06 of drone madness!
Total edition run of 300 copies.
Cassette version is available through The Flenser in a limited edition of 100 copies.

Swirling guitars, furious drums, vocals that at the same time howl from infinite distance and are right up in your head; everything put into dissonant form with the help of unconventional songwriting. This album is my personal key to the icelanding black metal madness that I've ignored for way too long! Lukas Kaufmann
