The coming of 'Planet Satan'. Mysticum signs with Peaceville Records

Peaceville Records is proud to announce the signing of cult Norwegian band Mysticum, which will result in the release of the long-rumoured second studio album, 'Planet Satan', a record almost 15 years in the making. Unifying the core trio of Herr General Cerastes, Svartravn & Mean Malmberg, Mysticum will commence work on the new album shortly.

One of the pioneering industrial black metal forces to emerge in the early 90's, Mysticum brought to the world a completely unique brand of psychedelic discordant black metal with insane drum machine patterns & synths. They were originally signed to Euronymous' Deathlike Silence Productions label, such was his belief in the band. However, this venture proved to be cut short following his murder, forcing Mysticum to look elsewhere for the release of their eventual debut album, 'In the Streams of Inferno'. 

Mysticum's past releases, consisting of 1996's 'In the Streams of Inferno' & the collection of the band's other works, 'Lost Masters of the Universe', will both be re-released by Peaceville with new artwork & with remastered sound, plus bonus material. Release dates for these titles, plus 'Planet Satan' will be announced in time. 

Band statement:
“Mysticum is back! A few months ago we decided to gather forces again, and finally start the making of the cursed album "Planet Satan". After considering several offers and going through negotiations, we decided to sign with Peaceville Records in order to have a proper record label to back us up. Peaceville will handle our complete discography and also make our old material available. So along with "Planet Satan" you can expect re-releases of "In the Streams of Inferno" and "Lost Masters of the Universe". Stay tuned for more folks!!”
