With seven studio albums and many tours alongside black metal heavyweights Marduk, Gorgoroth, and Dimmu Borgir under their belt: it wasn’t just a little history that MYSTIC CIRCLE left behind when they decided to call it quits in 2007. But alas, fourteen years of silence are over as MYSTIC CIRCLE – consisting of Beelzebub and A. Blackwar who had actually left the group in 1999 – has risen from their graves to renew their deal with the Dark Lord.

This year’s Mystic Circle full-length was produced by the band and Nils Lesser at Vaultroom Productions and features the diabolic cover art of Brazilian artist Rafael Tavares. Order Mystic Circle, merchandise, more from the Atomic Fire Records webshop HERE.
