Magic Circle - ST 12"
Massachusetts continues to produce kickass doom metal. I have already reviewed offerings from Elder and Ice Dragon, and my home state has also provided Black Pyramid, Olde Growth, Ichabod, Summoner, Second Grave, and Black Thai, all of whom I would love to share with you here on Iron Hops at some point. And then there’s Magic Circle, whose recently-released self-titled album appeared seemingly from nowhere and has started to make some waves. Now, when I say “nowhere,” I mean that the band has no official sources of information pretty much anywhere; they have no website, Facebook page, or any other social media profiles outside of guitarist Chris Corry’s Youtube page (which features a few songs and a live performance). So information on the band is pretty scarse.
