MYSTIFIER - The World Is So Good That Who Made It Doesn't Live Here LP (Blue/White/Black Splatter)
Cult black metal. Must-have!
Released in a gatefold sleeve. Reissue, Blue/White/Black Splatter vinyl.
Although this obscure 1996 cut from Mystifier's back catalogue deserved this re-release on the basis of it being the first ever vinyl edition alone, it is also an important piece of Black Metal history in dire need of unearthing and wider dissemination. 3 years in the making after Göetia this was an ambitious album that drew away from Mystifier's primitive roots by mirroring and even furthering a lot of what was going on in European Black Metal at the time, and was lightyears ahead of any of their South American peers. For the most part the playing is still raw and riddled with imperfections, but compared with the stifling and primitive school of blasphemy where they had their genesis this is incredibly layered and atmospheric stuff with more in common with the Hellenic and Central European, and occasionally English, styles of Black Metal.
