MYSTAGOGUE "and the darkness was cast out into the wilderness" LP/CD
vendetta records # 182
released August 30, 2019
Atmospheric, melodic and intense black metal by members of Laster and Gnaw Their Tongues.
"Mystagogue bridges the gap between rawer, more visceral forms of blackened expression with the stylistic rapture of trendier outfits. Whether laying out a simple punky beat or just slathering on the layers in an atmospheric frenzy, this band feels absolutely tight as a drum." invisible oranges
"Curse These Metal Hands" parlays the UK bands' chemistry into a record which—for all its tinnitus-inducing ferocity and elegiac arrangements—practically drips with transcendent joy. Bandcamp Album of the Day Aug 19, 2019
