Mystic Circle Take Step Back To Black Metal Roots

German "dark Satanic metal band" MYSTIC CIRCLE have finished recording their seventh full-length album, "The Bloody Path of God", due on February 27, 2006 via Dockyard 1, the new company formed by Dirk Putzke, Christine Stephan (both ex-Sanctuary/Noise Records) and Piet Sielck (IRON SAVIOR). The new CD was recorded at State of the Arts studio in Ludwigshafen, Germany with producer Alex Koch and contains 13 songs, including a cover version of CELTIC FROST's "Circle of the Tyrants".

Commented MYSTIC CIRCLE guitarist Ezpharess: "We're taking one step back to our early black metal roots with 'The Bloody Path of God'. We used keyboards again, to provide the haunted atmosphere songs like 'Doomsday Prophecy', 'Riders of the Apocalypse', 'The Forgotten' or 'Unholy Terror' deserve. Also singer Graf Von Beelzebub is screaming again, and doesn't use the death-metal-alike growls of 'Open the Gates of Hell' anymore."

MYSTIC CIRCLE issued a "best of" album, entitled "Mystic Circle Unholy Chronicles 1992-2004", in November 2004 via Massacre Records. The CD, which contains 18 songs spanning the group's entire career, includes a bonus DVD, featuring concert and backstage footage, as well as interviews and a video clip.
