Circus Pandemonium” is the 5th full-length studio album by Swedish progressive rock/metal act A.C.T. It´s the first album release by the band since “Silence (2006)”, so it´s been an 8 years long recording break.
“Circus Pandemonium” sees A.C.T return doing what they do best: Playing melodic progressive rock/metal with great positive energy delivered with sublime technical skill. They have a distinct sound, that sets them apart from most other contemporary acts although their influences do shine through. When listening to A.C.T I´m first and foremost reminded of 70s art rock acts like Roxy Music, 10cc, Supertramp and especially Queen, but with an added progressive metal edge that reminds me of early Dream Theater.
