is a German black metal
Mystic Circle was formed in 1992 in Ludwigshafen
. They released several EPs before their debut LP was issued in 1997. Following their 1998 release they toured with Marduk
and Old Man's Child
and played several large rock festivals. After their 1999 release Infernal Satanic Verses
, their original drummer, Aarrrgon, left the group, and they had to use a drum machine
to complete their tour.
Beelzebub has left the band to pursue another long-awaited project called Gloomball. It was unknown whether Mystic Circle will replace Beelzebub and trudge on, or call it quits, but according to Beelzubub on his personal myspace page, Mystic Circle is "history".
