MERCURY CIRCLE - Unveils Second Single And Video From The Upcoming Debut Album

Finland's "new doom" - collective Mercury Circle, a band featuring members of Swallow The Sun and Children Of Bodom, shared a brand new song, "Black Mirrors", from their upcoming and highly anticipated debut album, Killing Moons, which is slated for release on the 8th of October via Noble Demon. After the previously released first single, “You Open Up The Earth”, which is still available for streaming over HERE, Mercury Circle have shared a brand new video clip for the goth rock opus "Black Mirrors“ today.

"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 the 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 80s goth beats. Add a few spiderwebs and whispers in French and you’re good to go!" Link
