Mystic Circle
The Bloody Path Of God
June 2006
Released: 2006, Dockyard 1/Sound Pollution
Rating: 1.5/5
Reviewer: Anders Sandvall

Mystic Circle was founded 1992 and this disc is album number 7. Mystic Circle play the harder form of metal, they stand with one leg in the black metal ditch and the other in the death metal soil, so their music is a mix of those two sub-genres.

The singer varies between death and black metal vocals and the musicians play in a frenzy the whole album through and even though I think the guys wish to be an old school act, they have used keyboards, so instead the music leans more towards Dimmu Borgir. Mystic Circle have placed themselves in a musical no-mans-land with their music. There are a lot of other great acts that do this so much better than Mystic Circle ever will and their music doesn’t add anything important to the scene. The production standard, nothing more or less, and amongst the 12 tracks they have included a intro consisting of a voice that talks for 45 seconds. If you take a look at the song titles you can wonder if the guys have stayed in the 80’s because titles like “The Grim Reaper”, “Nine Plagues Of Egypt” and “Hellborn” are too tacky to be true.

I have never heard Mystic Circle before, and believe me I’m glad. I haven’t missed a thing, at least it feels so when I listen to THE BLOODY PATH OF GOD. Unfortunate there aren’t any tracks that’s remotely close to being killer.
