Biography

Begun in 1995 by Jean-Paul Antelmi of France, the project ‘Tribe of Circle’ has evolved through a dark ambient to martial neofolk genre but has remained a dedicated vehicle for the artist’s very personal and introspective concepts. Antelmi provokes the listener to think and feel and realise their own interpretation of the music.

On the latest album - Children of a Weakened God - Antelmi continues to address a common theme of secular humanism, invoking ideals that transcend physical reality. The profoundly disturbing L’Une Ou L’Autre De Nos Failles (One or the other of our weaknesses) is an exemplary artistic interpretation of humanity’s decline in the face of unstoppable industrial progress.

Woven together with incredible complexity are movie soundbites, ethereal female laments, forceful, bombastic percussion sets, the spoken word, (for example the dramatic medieval poem “Ballade des Pendus”, superbly orated by Léo Ferré on the track Frères Humains…Frères Ennemis) and unusual instruments such as the cornemuse (French bagpipe) amongst other things, to make truly powerful compositions.

    "The Advent of Redemption" пожалуй этот альбом больше понравился. Особенно те мелодии с хоралом.

    "Children Of A Weakened God" - это нечто! Настоящее произведение искусства. Испытал что-то похожее на шок, при прослушивании.

    I discovered ToC only recently and this project is already becoming one of my all time favorites. I bought those 3 masterpieces all in one go. Jean-Paul Antelmi is a consistently impressive artist imo.

    "Particularly love how he uses Léo Ferré's recitation of Ballade des Perdus in 'Frères Humains...Frères Ennemis'." The initial author is François Villon, a medieval poet.

    Hey Sgathaich ;) My favourite track from Children Of A Weakened God is L'Une Ou L'Autre De Nos Failles. It's gradual escalation to almost ecstatic intensity is sending chills down my spine every single time I listen to it.
