Having achieved almost mythical status in black metal lore, ‘Planet Satan’ has been rumoured since the late 1990’s, following the band’s debut release, 1996’s ‘In the Streams of Inferno’. Unifying the core trio of Herr General Cerastes, Svartravn & DrBest, ‘Planet Satan’ is now upon us.
A work of intense and otherworldly black metal power injected with Mysticum’s strong cosmic, satanic and psychedelic overtones, ‘Planet Satan’ welcomes Mysticum to the new millennium with full & unrelenting force, whilst retaining the core elements which made the Norwegians pioneering legends of industrial black metal.
Both infernal & nihilistic, as well as apocalyptic in its scope and execution, ‘Planet Satan’ is a new milestone for the genre in its sublime, chaotic ferocity. Primitive minor-chord riff patterns & tortured vocals mixed with the band’s manic and often unconventional programmed drum beats makes this an eerily hypnotic work of the darkest order.
The album was recorded & mixed at Fias Co. Studios with producer Sverre Dæhli, & mastered by Tom Kvålsvoll at Strype Audio in Oslo.
Emerging in the early 1990’s, Mysticum brought to the world a completely unique brand of psychedelic discordant black metal with insane drum machine patterns & synths. They were originally (and briefly) signed to Euronymous’ Deathlike Silence Productions label, such was his belief in the band.
This bundle of ‘Planet Satan’ includes CD mediabook plus 180gm heavyweight vinyl with gatefold sleeve and poster.
Currently sold out. More stock coming.

Will you play live in France soon? I saw you on stage in 1996 with marduk and gehena in Marseille… It was awesome. Cerastes certainly the best BM vocalist and mysticum the best band on earth (and hell)!!!!
An old fan of 38 years old…
Mysticum rules (as you always did). What a fantastic music you guys created again with Planet Satan. Can’t get enough of tracks like The ether and Fist of satan. Often play In the streams of inferno with my favorite track The Rest (”you know what she did…”), what a fantastic evil phrase…
Hope to be able to see you sometime soon in The Netherlands with the same fantastic light show you used on the Black flames of blasphemy show : unbelievable! I saw you in Rotterdam (The Baroeg) in 1996. A dark, mercilessly, unique, industrialized sound, that is what you bring. Many hails from the city Enschede in the Netherlands and keep up the good work.
