Biography


“With my face plastered against the fiberglass casing of the engineering room, I was pummeled by the theatrically trained vocals, the fast moving guitars and thundering drums. Perched on either side of the stage were a couple of long hairs toting Ibanez guitars like fully loaded assault weapons ready for a high-noon showdown. In the back sat Craig, the drummer of Full Circle, he absolutely destroyed the place. Had the building not have been recently rebuilt, I feel he would have reduced the bar to rubble. With awe-inspiring vocals and a truly at-home stage presence, Full Circle rocked.”

Just one of the many high energy shows Full Circle has been performing since their inception in 1997. Armed with the blazing guitar work of James Spence, the thundering bass of Keith Trayer, the insistent drums of Craig Cottrell and powerful vocals of Tommy Krell, Full Circle is clearly the premier rock band in Colorado, pleasing audiences with their melodic, guitar driven songs and unshakable vocal hooks. The undeniable chemistry of Full Circle is evident on their debut disc “Self-Titled” and follow up disc “Night and Day”. Often called “Denver’s Hottest Original Rock Band “, Full Circle has been compared to the likes of Metallica, Queensryche, Guns and Roses, Iron Maiden, and other modern progressive artists. Full Circle’s live following continues, winning the Hard Rock Café “Shot at the Cabo Wabo” and Colorado State University’s battle of the bands and subsequently playing live on CSU’s radio station and at the university’s “Green and Gold Explosion” festival. With excellent reviews from Sweden’s “Catchy Hooks” and Germany’s “Strutter Magazine”, Full Circle has been bombarded with requests for CD’s and press kits, including the recently recorded video for “This Time”, both locally and abroad. With a new studio (owned by the band) and more than 30 new songs to choose from, Full Circle is once again hitting the studio to record their new CD. Stay Tuned……..

Press Reviews:

- Catchy Hooks (Sweden): “Full Circle is a band from Denver, Colorado that plays melodic progressive metal a-la Queensryche and Sacred Warrior. Opener "Change" is a nice song with verses that sounds a lot like the mighty Queensryche in their "Empire" days! "All I Need is a great semi-ballad with a catchy chorus... "Walk Away" is back to the progressive stuff again. It's an up tempo rocker that fans of Queensryche will enjoy for sure! I must say that I really like the guitar work. "Tomorrow" is another good acoustic ballad with the typical late 80's sound. "Steal Away the Night" has got a really cool guitar riff that reminds me of the verses on "Don't Stand So Close To Me" that the Police did, but more metal of course. And let's not forget "In the Cold" with a lovely intro a-la Queensryche and both the guitar sound and the vocals by Tommy Krell is pure prog-metal a-la late 80's!”

- Strutter Magazine- “Here's a band from Denver, Colorado playing good old 80's melodic hard rock. Fans of WINGER, DAMN YANKEES, FIREHOUSE, HARDLINE, ETC will appreciate FULL CIRCLE. "Change" and "All I Need" are groovy melodic rockers like late Firehouse. "Walk Away” is a good 80's melodic rocker; "Body Talk" is a groovy hard rock tune. The best song of Full Circle, "Tomorrow", is a great late 90's U.S. mainstream semi melodic rock ballad (hello Damn Yankees and Hardline). "Steal Away is again groovier and "In the Cold" is a very good up tempo melodic rocker in the 80's style (Dokken meets White Lion).”

Lyrics

Goodbye

Written By: C. Cottrell

Woke up this morning, nothing's the same
And without warning I found me calling your name

You said you're leaving, wouldn't tell me why
Had me believing in what was a lie
You said Goodbye

Now I'm searching for answers
Now I'm left with the pain of goodbye

For what it's worth you had me believing
Your empty words still echo in my mind, back of my mind

A million times I've run it through my head
Remembering every last word that you said
You said goodbye

Now I'm searching for answers
Now I'm left with the pain

Won't you give me a reason why you said goodbye
Can't you give a reason why?

Somewhere in time you'll get what's coming
You'll find what you want
He'll end up walking away, walking away

You'll be left searching for answers, you'll be left with the pain

Won't you give me a reason why you said goodbye
Can't you give a reason why?

Necessary Evil

Written By: C. Cottrell

You need to use me as your means to an end
When you are down, I'm your only friend
I'm your reason when you justify
I'm the truth while you live a lie

You can't live without me
I'm your necessary evil

I'm your motive at the scene of the crime
When you're enlightened I'm your darker side
I'm your anger when you need to hate
I'm the imbalance of your mindstate

You can't live without me
I'm your necessary evil
Don't ever doubt me
I'm inside your mind

Don't try to blame me
Can't justify
I am the side of you that will never die

I'm inside your fucked up mind!

Hate

Written By: C. Cottrell

Heard the news today
Another fallen
Pulled into the darkness
A life was taken
You watch it, you won't stop it
When they fall you won't save them
They call to you, you don't answer
You watch them fall to their knees
Turn your back, won't stop the bleeding
Pretend not to see

Hate
Don't want your
Hate
Can't stand the
Hate
Can't take your hate of the world

If hallow by thy name
Of all that's holy
Why can't you let me pray
To a God of my choice?
You see it
Don't believe it
When you fall I won't save you
You look to me
Beg forgiveness
I'll watch you fall to your knees
A day will come when I see you needing
I'll turn away
