German- based blackened Art Metal duo, The Circle, has announced the release of their first full-length album, entitled Metamorphosis, which is slated for a release on April 23, 2021.
Coming from the void of darkness and misery, while complex and artfully created compositions lead through an obscure soundsphere and revealing diverse facets of the state of mind, The Circle delivers an enlightening odyssey with their Metamorphosis. The blend of aggression and melancholy, deep meaning and prodigious visuals create a mystery and grandeur of the band, and one that follows the path of inevitable changes and a wide spectrum of emotions. Join The Circle and get on a dark trip, as the band just released a brand new video for their second album single Chapter II: Verzweiflung! Watch the haunting clip right here:
“We are proud to announce the release of our first opus ‘Metamorphosis’,” says the band. “We will take you on a journey exploring the darkest corners of your inner self under the sign of Art Metal – the genre that comprises the beauty of black metal, haunting melodies and depth of melodeath enriched by cinematic elements. Together we will reach emotional rebirth. Metamorphosis is just the beginning of a long path…”
Metamorphosis is a concept album, featuring four enthralling tracks, that are reflecting four chapters: Fear, despair, wrath and salvation. The band plans to release a music video for each album track, and to create a kind of a short four- chapter movie.
As a guest and session vocalist on their upcoming debut album, The Circle invited no one less than Asim Searah (Wintersun, Damnation Plan, TRVE CVLT CLVB) to join the emotional ride of Metamorphosis!
