Last week was the 10th anniversary of Botch breaking up. They are perhaps the most beloved and influential experimental hardcore band to ever come out of the Pacific Northwest, and unlike so many of their peers, they've chosen not to reunite. That fact would be a lot more difficult to accept if the band members didn't go on to do such fantastic things, including Russian Circles, featuring former Botch bassist (and sometime Mercury contributor) Brian Cook. I foolishly slept on Russian Circles' latest record, Empros, when it was first released last fall, and I beg you to not make the same mistake. Russian Circles' releases have always been impressive, but the band turned everything up to 11 for Empros, somehow capturing the mind-blowing dynamics of their live show in the studio. It's almost too brutal to listen to on headphones. Almost. MEGAN SELING
