MYSTIC CIRCLE‘s return is finally here! Today marks the official release of the German black/death metal outfit’s eponymous comeback album via Atomic Fire Records.
In celebration of the record’s release, the band has unveiled a third video for the hellish hymn “Darkness In Flames.” The track’s twisted melodies, monumental scope, unrepentantly evil vibe, and seductive arrangements takes its listeners hostage in the godless garden of these extreme metal pioneers. Much like a horror movie, “Darkness In Flames” is at once malicious, dramatic, scornful, and thrilling to the last note drenched in fast-paced drumming and remarkable riff muscle. Comments Beelzebub, “Originally this was also the name of the album before it became self-titled.”

Crowned, “the finest, deep black entertainment,” by Metal Hammer Germany, Mystic Circle was produced by the band and Nils Lesser at Vaultroom Productions and features the diabolic cover art of Brazilian artist Rafael Tavares.

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, 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
