I am wondering if anyone can assist with some information on a mysterious mid 90ís band from Australia called Mysterium.

In this day and age I would have thought there would have been a listing on Metal Archives Ė but there is nothing at all.

Anyway back in the mid 90ís I had a dub of a demo, or it was possibly a promo advance copy of the recording planned to be released on CD by Bloodless Creations. Bloodless Creations was the ill fated label of Shane Rout/ Abyssic Hate, which folded after 2 releases - therefore the Mysterium CD obviously never got released.

With the recording I remember the sound production and song writing was professional, being very much a synth heavy black metal sound in the vein of Emperor and Ulver.

As I donít have the tape anyone, I am curious if there is any information available on this obscure band and whether anyone has a copy of this recording floating around, which I would be keen to hear again.

Any information would be appreciated!!!

I guess you know of the Armoured Angel ep of the same name. That came out in 94 if memory serves. I dont recall shane had any band of that name on his horizons. In fact the samain and ab hate/dhf releases took so long he was iver it by the time they were released and taking over darker than black.

This afternoon I dug up a little photocopy newletter booklet from Bloodless Creations from 1996 with interviews with upcoming artists at the time including Mists of Darkness ( dark ambient ) and GOTH ( a band featuring ex Gospel of the Horns singer Transvaal). It also included a short blurb on Samain and Mysterium - so it is certainly a different band and not the Armored Angel MCD. The Mysterium blurb stated that are a new band with an upcoming mini CD and that "Mysterium have no contact address and are unable to answer any mail whatsoever".

So I gather I had a promo copy of the MCD based on this info - but still mystery about who was behind the band and what happened to the recording.

I have a copy of the Mysterium you're talking about. "Battlefield of the Ancients" is the title. Email me abysmalsounds@gmail.com if you would like to arrange a dub.
