Black Moon Circle is a Norwegian space rock band, formed by Øyvin Engan
(bass guitar/vocals) and Vemund Engan (guitar) in 2012.
Both brothers used to play in the Trondheim-based punk rock band The Reilly
Express. Shortly afterwards, the line-up was completed with the addition of Per
Andreas Gulbrandsen on drums.
The sound of Black Moon Circle combines prolonged jams with heavy riffage
and the extensive use of effects on bass and guitar. Other bands operating in a
similar sonic landscape are Earthless and Colour Haze.
The band recorded their debut, a self-titled mini-album, at Nautilus studios in
2013 and the record was released in February 2014 by Space Rock Productions,
the label run by the Øresund Space Collective from Copenhagen, Denmark.
In April, the band returned to the studio and recorded “Andromeda” during an
efficient one-day run. Released by Crispin Clover Records in
cooperation with Stickman Records in October 2014.
