MERCURY CIRCLE premiere video for The Beauty Of Agony

MERCURY CIRCLE, the project by ICONCRASH’s and SWALLOW THE SUN’s, two times Finnish Grammy nominated Jaani Peuhu, will release their debut on August 14th via Noble Demon and The Vinyl Division. Today the band from Helsinki, Finland, released a first appetizer of what to expect from their upcoming EP, “The Dawn of Vitriol”, with the premiere of a brand new music clip for The Beauty Of Agony.

Watch The Beauty Of Agony below.

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.

“The Dawn of Vitriol” will be coming out August 14th on Noble Demon (Digital) and The Vinyl Division (Vinyl + Digipack CD) and on the official landing – page you can already NOW give permission to have a release saved to your library or added to your playlist as soon as it is out.
