about

Recorded at Warehouse Studios in Oxfordshire.

lyrics

Shrieking and reeling, the crow tears the night sky
Heeding the call of his master
Bursts out from the forest
Bears down on the cornfield
See his god rise o'er the pasture

Torn coattails alive in the wind
And a battered top hat crowns his grinning pumpkin head
His eyes grow red, and his grin grows sharp
As the night becomes wild, his hour is upon him

Behold!

Circle Master rising, raises his hands to the storm
His power renewed, he leaves his calling card in the corn
Circle Master rising, raises his hands to the storm
His power renewed, he leaves

Summers ago raged the sun in a parched sky
Blistering his skin as he laboured
On soil, desert dry, forlorn tears in his eyes
For all his toil there seemed no reward
In rage, flung his spade to the ground
Cursed the spirit of the field for this impotent crop
Beat the air with his fists in defiance of his god
Lamenting his prayer, long unanswered

Behold!

Circle Master rising, raises his hands to the storm
His power renewed, he leaves his calling card in the corn
Circle Master rising, raises his hands to the storm
His power renewed, he leaves

What gives you right to question my will?
For all eternity am I one with this field
To thirst in its drought and to gorge when it bears fruit
Mortal, you know not my suffering
I shall give you power to command the crop
And one with its cycles, shall you become
With the power of the Circle Master, you shall be one
The corn's pain you'll feel when your work is done

Behold!

Circle Master rising, raises his hands to the storm
His power renewed, he leaves his calling card in the corn
Circle Master rising, raises his hands to the storm
His power renewed, he leaves his calling card in the corn

about

Steven Colborne London, UK

Hailing from the same Oxfordshire neighbourhood as Radiohead and Supergrass, Colborne's band Marconi's Voodoo were influential in the UK alternative music scene in the early 2000s. As a solo artist, Colborne has released a range of recordings, from emotive acoustic music to electro-rock anthems. His knack for powerful riffery and fearless lyrics makes for a truly exciting catalogue of releases. ... more
