6th Circle Announces Full-Length Album "The Third Estate"


Industrial/EBM artist 6th Circle announces the releases of his new album The Third Estate on October 4th.


Steeped in themes of anti-religion, evil, magic, and social downfall, on debut LP The Third Estate, Columbus OH-based satanist/anarchist electro-industrial chaos monger 6th Circle synthesizes a pitch black maelstrom of driving beats, harsh samples, and apocalyptic atmospheres to materialize the quintessential post-industrial pandemonium.


An electro-industrial/EBM statement of the highest order, The Third Estate sees sole mastermind and multi-instrumentalist Matt Auxier revitalize and re-imagine the genre by bridging its historic legacy built by forebears like Front 242, Front Line Assembly and Skinny Puppy, with a broad new spectrum of futuristic sonic transfigurations.


The Third Estate represents both a natural continuation and a marked evolution of Auxier's two iconic previous EP tape releases (the 2018 now impossible to find "Pacified" tape EP released by US raw black metal tape forge Knife Vision, and the Conjuring tape EP released in early 2019 by harsh noise death dealers Phage Tapes), further expanding and enhancing the project's shapeshifting palette of dark disorienting soundscapes and sinisterly catchy grooves, and elevating 6th Circle to a previously unseen threshold of excellence.


The work especially stands out for its retro-feeling timelessness juxtaposed to its imaginative and transformative take on the style, which has pushed the genre's boundaries forward and expanded its horizons by incorporating elements of occult darkness, anarchism, satanism, and of the darker and most fringe and uncompromising sides of Goth and Punk.


The Third Estate will be released on October 4th through Sentient Ruin Laboratories
