Why does this CD have to end?
From the very cool cover art to the last note, this release is awesome! From their far away Ukraine, founder Khorus and co. have composed and recorded one hell of a pleasant, and addictive, opus of brilliant atmospheric Black Metal. Khors had the great idea to include all the best elements found in Black Metal: mid tempos, a gloomy atmosphere, crushing riffs, ambient keyboards, excellent vocals (rasps and clean), intelligent songwriting and the exquisite tonalities of an acoustic electric guitar. Khors have concentrated their efforts on the melodic aspects of Black Metal, and written some fine musical harmonies. Those harmonious moments are often found on delicate arpeggios, only embellished by the fine sound of the acoustic electric guitar. Khors can also come up with some kicking Black Metal parts, as you can witness in songs like "Winterfall", "In the Cold Embrace of Mist" and "Mysticism". For those who know that Black Metal art is all about atmosphere, and with a liking for intelligent songwriting filled with great harmonies, Mysticism is here to enjoy often, very often.
