Callenish Circle Set US Release Date

Candlelight Records confirms January 25 as the US release date for "Forbidden Empathy," a 2cd retrospect from Holland's Callenish Circle. Featuring 29 songs that chronicle the five-piece's complete and previously unavailable early recordings, the special-priced release is a must have for stateside fans of the melodic metal band.

Callenish Circle recorded their first and only demo, titled "Lovelorn," in 1995. Produced by Han Swagerman (The Gathering), it swiftly sold-out its limited 1000 pressing. The band's full-length debut, "Drift of Empathy," would follow in 1996 and successfully thereafter the band's "Escape" EP and 1998's impressive "Graceful Yet Forbidding." All, however, failing to reach via proper channels, stateside fans curious about the dutch band. Commenting on the stateside release singer Patrick Savelkoul says, "definitely in the US these recordings were extremely hard to find, so we are very excited that our fans in the US will be able to buy all our previous material in one single buy for the price of a regular CD."

Formed in 1992, Callenish Circle have released four full length albums and have performed at numerous high profile festival performances - including Wacken Open Air, Summer Breeze, European Ozzfest. The band are currently writing for their fifth album, expected sometime late 2005.
