Sounds | Mercury Circle, The Beauty Of Agony

Aan het begin van dit nieuwe jaar vuur ik een paar nummers op jullie af van bands die je als metalhead best in het oog houdt. Met dank aan Metal Hammer (Louder) voor de inspiratie.

Jaani Peuhu zullen jullie misschien kennen als keyboarder bij Swallow The Sun, of van zijn soloproject Iconcrash? Met Mercury Circle lanceerde de Fin afgelopen jaar een nieuw project dat de dramatiek van ('80s) goth en doom onderdompelt in een synth rock sfeertje.

Voor de vrolijke fransen onder ons dus. De eerste EP Dawn Of Vitriol verscheen op 14 augustus 2020 via Noble Demon (digitaal) en The Vinyl Division (fysieke ex.).

ter info Mercury Circle, the brand new project by ICONCRASH's and SWALLOW THE SUN’s, two times Finnish Grammy nominated Jaani Peuhu, released their hotly anticipated debut on August 14th 2020 via Noble Demon and The Vinyl Division. Mercury Circle is creating a diverse offering of atmospheric and darkly music where the songs differ wildly in expression and sonic aesthetics. Truly a genre of its own, grabbing the listener's attention while establishing their very own kind of "New Doom". But listen for yourself and enjoy some top notch Finnish melancholy while watching the cinematic and stirring music video for "The Beauty Of Agony"! Jaani Peuhu about the song: "This was one of the first songs I wrote for MC, so we thought it would also be a good introduction to the world of Mercury Circle. Actually, the very first songs were closer to a kind of funeral doom style, but with this one I took a step back and jumped off that wagon and started to follow my heart with the instrumentation and arrangement. I ended up combining elements from 80's goth and world music with doom influences. I remember how I felt nervous about the mixture and to me it is always a sign that I am doing something right. I want this band to sound fresh and original and aim for our own sound. This is New Doom."
