Soniq Circus have released the album Chapter 1 The Game Begins, and actually the writing process started back in 2010! It`s a concept album about a gathering of people meeting by a card table at a cruise ship, and different events taking place from there. Chapter One: The Game Begins is the first of three releases to follow within the next years. This album only last for 32 minutes and there are even though much symphonic prog on the album. Soniq Circus is a band playing progressive rock with a touch of modern metal and symphonic rock from the 70’s
Concerts: Soniq Circus play with Anekdoten in Malmö (April 29), Gothenburg (April 30) or Stockholm (May 1). Swedish quintet Soniq Circus bring a touch of style and a knack for songwriting to their brand of heavy symphonic rock, and released one of the more honest prog albums of 2007 with their self-titled debut on Progress Records. The debut album was followed up by the 2011 release Reflections In The Hourglass.
Keyboardist Marco Ledri provides rich and varied organ sounds that work hand-in-hand with the guitars of Marcus Enochsson. Though they don’t imitate, the group takes plenty of influence from contemporaries such as Spocks`s Beard but also from the classic qualities of Rush, adding touches of Genesis and Saga.
