Following their critically acclaimed “The Dawn Of Vitriol” EP (2020), MERCURY CIRCLE have shared a brand new song from their upcoming and highly anticipated debut album, “Killing Moons,” which is slated for release on October 8, 2021, via Noble Demon!
Born as a brainchild in 2018 by ICONCRASH‘s and SWALLOW THE SUN’s Jaani Peuhu, and featuring members of CHILDREN OF BODOMSLEEP OF MONSTERS, and more, MERCURY CIRCLE create a diverse blend of dark rock infused with electrifying synth wave and slow, epic doom. On their upcoming full-length album, MERCURY CIRCLE unleash ten enthralling tracks, which differ wildly in expression and sonic aesthetics. “Killing Moons” is a deeply powerful and majestic piece of music – truly representing a genre of its own – and one that will take the listener on an all-absorbing trip into yet unimaginable spheres.

After the previously released first single, “You Open Up The Earth,” MERCURY CIRCLE have shared a brand new video clip for the goth rock opus “Black Mirrors“ today! Watch the video here:

John Dee (13 July 1527 – 1608 or 1609) was an Anglo-Welsh mathematician, astronomer, astrologer, teacher, occultist, and alchemist. He was the court astronomer for, and advisor to, Elizabeth I, and spent much of his time on alchemy, divination and Hermetic philosophy,” band mastermind Jaani Peuhu reveals. “The lyrics for Black Mirrors are a mixture of matters of the heart and occultism. In the beginning we hear a prophecy from Nostradamus before plunging into a dark and delusional world – a place for the abandoned heart, where light is reflected from John Dee’s black mirror. Musically it’s more in vein of goth rock than doom metal. When writing the song I envisioned how Queen with a goth rock twist would sound. I’m a fan of big choruses and 80’s goth beats. Add a little bit of spiderwebs and whispers in French and you’re good to go!

Drummer Jaska Raatikainen states, “The making of [the music video] was so exciting with so many talented people. You might wonder why there is a helmet in this video again. The helmet symbolizes our music. To us, the helmet is a gateway to our music or a bridge between fantasy and reality. With a helmet on, you can escape this crazy world and be yourself. Let loose your inner self, fantasies, go back in time, be sad. At some point, we dare you to lift up the visor though, and come back to this world feeling better. What does your helmet look like, and especially, what do you look like when the visor is up? Show us!”
