Russian Circles' "Malko" MP3 Available For Free Download

The Fader recently premiered Russian Circles' "Malko," the first track from "Geneva" available as a free MP3 download. This one's a fast 80's cocaine song with a shred guitar intro that "runs through a host of genres," while constantly upping the intensity and catchiness of the music, before the tension swells to reach a scathing end.

According to Mike Sullivan, the band's guitarist, "this SKULLFUCKER commands the weak to rip their appendages off their SHITTY bodies and leave their worthless torsos to dry on the floor."

I like the song very much. The beginning is just awesome, like you're in your happy place, but then towards the middle it's like tragedy is about to strike, followed by a dizzy like feeling til it's all over. It really is a good "cocaine song" as was described.

My friend introduced me to this band a couple months ago. He, as well as this band, are a part of the "indie" scene but either way I really like this band.

As for the cocaine reference, I would always have a different reaction to the drug then most people do/did. For some reason when I would do coke it never got me "amped" up. Instead it got me really calm, like I was really stoned or something.
