2022 – the year of MYSTIC CIRCLE‘s return – is finally here! Set to release their eponymous comeback album on February 4th via Atomic Fire Records, the German black/death metal outfit today unleashes another unholy hymn off the record with “Belial Is My Name.”
Notes Beelzebub of the track, “Kicking off by reviving, or more specifically continuing, the outro of our 1999 album Infernal Satanic Verses, we’re conjuring hellish demon Belial who’s rising up to mesmerize the universe. He – who even calls himself Satan – is one out of four arch demons, chained in hell and causing the downfall of earth – fittingly set to music in the most brutal and bombastic but still melodic way.”

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 German black/death metal legends MYSTIC CIRCLE left behind when they decided to call it quits in 2007. But alas, 14 years of silence are over as MYSTIC CIRCLE – consisting of Beelzebub and A. Blackwar who had actually left the group in 1999 – have risen from their graves to renew their deal with the Dark Lord
