Circle is an experimental rock-music band, founded in Pori, Finland in 1991. Their style may be classed Progressive or Krautrock, similar to Faust, Can and Neu!.

Formed in 1991, Circle is the most visible and prolific name in the Finnish avant-rock underground. Having survived innumerable lineup changes, the band and its founder, bassist/vocalist/guitarist Jussi Lehtisalo, have constantly reinvented themselves, weaving hypnotic mantras out of exacting Krautrock beats, heavy riffs, arty noise, dark psychedelia, and soundtrack-like beauty. Hard, chilly repetition has served as the lone unifying theme throughout 15 years of experiments.

Circle’s line-up has constantly changed over the years as the founder, Jussi Lehtisalo, is the only member who has been in the band the entire time. Since the lineup keeps changing and they frequently collaborate with different artists whom they allow to play as guests on their albums, it is difficult to list their entire lineup throughout their discography. —Wikipedia
