Circle of Death is the second and last studio album by Dance Club Massacre, released November 11, 2008.[1] It was recorded in 2008 at More Sounds Studios in Syracuse, New York with Jason "Jacko" Randall as the producer and was released through Black Market Activities.

While the band's debut album was more-or-less a combination of deathcore and mathcore, this release is more influenced by black metal, death metal, metalcore, and avant-garde metal. Guitarist Mitch Hein stated "Jocko really pushed us to be better musicians. The songs were dissected and put back together again with a lot of attention to detail."[2]
