At the end of December the band Don’t Disturb My Circlesare back with their sonic onslaught, hitting us yet again with their impenetrable wall of aggression that doesn’t obey the typical composition rules. With a DIY attitude and their uncompromising integrity, and featuring a musical style consisting of complex, discordant and abrasive style of noise rock infused post-hardcore, the band shows why they are a breath of fresh air in the underground metal scene.
Don’t Disturb My Circles are in their own world and they don’t want to be disturbed. In a world of apathy where lack of common sense seems to dictates our existence, DDMC finds the aggressive nature of their music in an upfront dissonance, deep passion and overwhelming chaos.
DDMC took their name from Archimedes last words before he was killed by a roman soldier in Syracuse while sketching a geometry problem in the sand. From the Latin phrase: Nōlī turbāre circulōs meōs.
Don’t Disturb My Circles was founded in 2005 by João, Henrique, Daniel P. Almeida and Sérgio. They released a demo in 2006, an EP in 2009 and a Split in 2011. In 2012 João Seixas took the drums in Daniel’s stead, and three years later the debut CD Lugubrious Cacophonous was released in 2015.
In the last 10 years DDMC has played around Portugal, incinerating stages, festivals and put out abrasive opening acts for bands such as Cancer Bats, Celeste, Mantar, Revok, Dillinger Escape Plan, Weedeater, No Omega, Cancer Bats, Sepultura and Obituary.
The Portuguese four piece arsonists are now back with their latest EP Lower Canopy with more intricate and exploratory songs that set the bar higher for their work.
