Mystik - Skalder Från Urskogens Dunkla Mystik album '18

Mystik is a Swedish one man band from the owner of Ancient Records/Mysticism Productions, who is also known for being behind (or a part of) other bands and projects such as GravHelgedomAzelisassath and Bekëth Nexëhmü (just to name a few).

Mystik's first release was created in 2010, it contained two long songs and it was very limited and impossible to find to buy or digitized (at least for us humans with limited powers). The material this very limited tape contained has finally been reworked, remastered and officially released this year as a CD album by Purity Through Fire label.

I, of course, grabbed myself a copy, not even doubting about the quality of music on it so - this is what I'm sharing with you today - personal CD rip in high quality with scans.

I've listened to the album and enjoyed it very, very much and will continue enjoying this art in the future. In the sea of currently active bands, Mystik is one of the true black arts that bring the breath of fresh air.
The album has very special energy and atmosphere which I consider would be a fail effort to try to put into words (at least if you're someone like me who is a writer, but not a poet). Music speaks for itself, and I won't spoil it in any way. All I can say is - enjoy this art. And there are copies still available, grab yourself one.


  1. Great return, Mystik is a very good band!

  5. This is the 2010 demo tape in its original form, only with the drums re-recorded. The long two track demo version was the second press. Its written in the booklet.
