Others more knowledgeable may know of other comparisons, but it seems that the most often made comparison to Russian Circles (RC) is Pelican. I didn't initially like Pelican (my first real exposure to an instrumental-only band), but they grew on me and I now have all of their albums. I knew RC was out there, but I never gave them a chance. This is their first of six releases, and this is the only one I own. I can't speak for their other releases, but this one is great! To me it is a heavier Pelican. I hope they keep this edge as I progress through their other albums.
I would recommend this to a friend
