October Thorns formed in Brooklyn, NY in 1999. Through a series of auditions, the band settled into a lineup of drummer Joe "Jofu" Cardillo, guitarists Joe Chawki and Dave Pando, Norbert Sator on keyboards, Dave Z on bass, and vocalist Paul LaPlaca. Pando-also head of Catalyst Promotions-was immediately relentless in setting up gigs for the group, including festival appearances such as Milwaukee Metalfest, Powermad, and The Big Bang. A performance at the 1999 Savatage Convention (a.k.a. Savacon '99) even led to Dave Z being asked to join the TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA. October Thorns eventually became a fixture at L'Amour-the self-proclaimed "Rock Capital of Brooklyn"-opening for acts such as SYMPHONY X, IN FLAMES, and GOD FORBID.By the time the band had completed a six-song demo, they were being covered by international magazines such as Aardschok, Heavy, Oder Was!?, and Transcending the Mundane; while garnering interest from labels like Century Media and Inside Out. Unfortunately, intra-band tensions were already causing instabilities within the lineup, and the members' working relationships proved too damaged to carry on.Two decades and several false starts later, Divebomb Records is excited to finally reissue Circle Game: the complete discography of October Thorns. The band's original six-song demo has been completely remixed by Alex Argento from Italian prog metallers Icefish, and is bolstered by an additional six previously unreleased rarities, totaling over an hour's worth of memorably adventurous progressive metal. As always, the disc will be housed alongside a 20-page CD booklet fully-loaded with photos, lyrics, and an all-new interview with Paul LaPlaca. For the fans, by the fans!

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50˘ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
and we’ll issue a refund for these if export restrictions apply. We reserve the right to limit quantities on select items.
