Mystic Circle self-titled comeback album out now

2022 – the year of Mystic Circle’s return – is finally here and today marks the release of their self-titled comeback album via Atomic Fire Records.
„This is the finest, deep black entertainment at a high level”, confirms Metal Hammer (Germany) and indeed, the German black/death metal outfit returns with a pure monster!

To celebrate the release day of »Mystic Circle«, the band reveals their third video, for the hellish track “Darkness In Flames”. It is oriental horror: Twisted melodies, monumental scope, an utterly evil vibe and seductive arrangements, take the listener hostage in the godless garden of these extreme metal pioneers. A song like a horror movie – malicious, dramatic, scornful and thrilling to the last tune. “Originally this was also the name of the album before it became our self-titled,” Beelzebub says about a song enthralling with insanely fast-paced drumming and remarkable riff muscle.

Founded in 1992 in Ludwigshafen/Germany, Mystic Circle quickly riled up the underground with their first three demos, and established themselves as the biggest national black metal band in 1998 when releasing the concept album “Drachenblut”. Seven albums later, the band decided to take an extended hiatus to devote themselves to other projects in 2006.

By 2020, the two protagonists and original members Beelzebub and A. Blackwar reconnected and realized that their musical fates are still entwined and they are on the same page about the ideas to yet unleash unto the world.

Their shared goals and the implementations took shape quickly and the two musicians found a producer and partner in Nils Lesser who understood and completed their dark vision. The result is more aggressive and voluminous, but with all the recognizable roots of their early phase. A first precursor will appear at the end of 2021 with the 7-inch single “Letters From The Devil”, limited to 666 copies, followed by their self-titled reunion album “Mystic Circle” in frosty February 2022. Those who specifically love the cult band’s first three works, grew up listening to the likes of Possessed and Morbid Angel as well as idolized acts like Dark Funeral and Marduk, will love Mystic Circle in its current reincarnation.
