MYSTIC CIRCLE – self-titled new album out now; reveal new video “Darkness In Flames”

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.
Watch the video:

»Mystic Circle« was produced by the band and Nils Lesser at Vaultroom Productions while its artwork was designed by Brazilian artist Rafael Tavares.

With seven studio albums and many tours alongside black metal heavyweights MARDUKGORGOROTH 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.
