VIRUS OF IDEALS – Release Cover Of Cradle Of Filth Classic “Nymphetamine”

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , on November 20, 2021 by Metal Odyssey

Connecticut symphonic death metal band VIRUS OF IDEALS have released a stunning cover of the classic CRADLE OF FILTH track “Nymphetamine Fix”. The song is available on all digital streaming outlets including Spotify and Bandcamp.

The band comments:

” ‘Nymphetamine Fix’ is obviously a classic, but the main reason we chose to cover this song is because it fits our style perfectly: it has a balanced mix of screaming and clean vocals with strong keyboards and orchestrations. This song was a challenge to record because there are way more layers of vocals, orchestrations, and guitars than we are used to. Fortunately, our drummer Brian (Westbrook (Lich King)) is also a producer with a fantastic ear; we were able to stay very faithful to the original due largely to his direction. We know our debut album is long overdue (our EP is 5 years old), but we are still making progress despite numerous setbacks over the years. We were planning to cover this song anyways, but we thought it would make the wait a bit easier for our fans to have something new to listen to in the meantime.”

MYSTIC CIRCLE – Reunited German Black/Death Metallers Unleash Video For “Letters From The Devil” – Mystic Circle Album Details Revealed + Preorders Begin

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal music, Music, music news with tags , , , , , on November 20, 2021 by Metal Odyssey

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 highly-anticipated, eponymous comeback, set for release on February 4th, 2022.

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, at THIS LOCATION.

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.

Preorder Mystic Circle in various formats (box set, CD-digipak, black/red marbled vinyl), presave it, or preorder the album digitally to receive “Letters From The Devil” instantly and order the group’s new Letters From The Devil 7″ black vinyl single, which includes the exclusive, non-album B-side track “The Godsmasher,” limited to 666 copies and available now at THIS LOCATION.

Letters From The Devil 7” Track Listing:

Side A: Letters From The Devil

Side B: The Godsmasher

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.

MYSTIC CIRCLE:

Beelzebub – vocals, guitars, bass, keyboards A. Blackwar – vocals, guitars, drums, keyboards
