Reunited MYSTIC CIRCLE Unleash "Letters From The Devil" Music Video; New Album Details Revealed
November 19, 2021, 2 weeks ago
Earlier this week, reunited German black/death metallers Mystic Circle announced their signing to Atomic Fire Records. Today, the duo unveils a video for “Letters From The Devil", the first single off their eponymous comeback, set for release on February 4.
Elaborates the band of the track, "This song tells the true story of a possessed nun who reportedly received messages from Satan at night back in 1676. They were of a language that can't be decoded to this day. Myths like these are always worthy of becoming a song within the Mystic Circle universe, of course. Musically, we kept it diabolical but still infectiously melodic. That diabolicalness has greatly been staged in our new music video. Get seduced...!"
“Letters From The Devil” is part of a trilogy written by the band’s own A. Blackwar. View the video, filmed and edited by Alen Ljubic and Nils Lesser, below.
Following the musical path where Infernal Satanic Verses - the final Mystic Circle record featuring both reunion members - had left off in 1999, 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 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.
