Light green transparent coloured vinyl 2LP
Richard Dawson is the diminutive Geordie troubadour whose moving songs have been described as state-of-the- nation addresses, even – or perhaps especially – when he’s singing about pre-medieval peasants. Circle are the genre- straddling pioneers of The New Wave Of Finnish Heavy Metal, known for wearing spandex or dead fish onstage and singing in a made-up language.
Together they are… Richard Dawson & Circle! ‘Henki’ is their epic joint record. It might seem a departure to those who are most familiar with Dawson from recent solo albums like 2017’s ‘Peasant’ and ‘2020’ (released in 2019). In fact, ‘Henki’ fits comfortably into the bigger picture of two acts who have always strived for uninhibited originality.
Easily the greatest flora-themed hypno-folk-metal record you’ll hear this year, ‘Henki’ adds an electrifying new chapter to the remarkable story of each act, marking the beginning of a beautiful partnership.
