Brand new album from one of Germany’s leading Death/Black Metal bands Mystic Circle. Right from the start in 1992 Mystic Circle continuously toured Europe with bands like, Dimmu Borgir, Marduk, Cannibal Corpse, Deicide, Gorgoroth, Old Man’s Child and Immortal, in other words with every well-known band in the Death/Black Metal genre.

With this new release called “The Bloody Path of God”, Mystic Circle is evolving further into the no man’s land between Death Metal and Black Metal.

The music changes between fast and very tight parts to mid tempo, heavy as shit riffing. In my opinion there is something in here for everyone in the Black, Death and Thrash scene. A little mixture of each that will satisfy all who wish to consume this release. It’s very easy to tell the numbers apart from each other, and my favourite tracks is the title-track “The Bloody Path of God”, “ Church of Sacrifice ” and “Unholy Terror”.
“Catchy”, yet venomous. Bombastic and apocalyptic is the way to go here.

If you want to discover the dark world between Death and Black Metal, look no further and check this album out when it hit the stores.
