Both VARATHRON and UNGOD require no introduction, being two of the oldest active black metal bands around: the former formed in 1989 while the latter formed in 1991. As such, their respective iterations of black metal are eternal and unyielding, and hail from a vast expanse of history rich in mysticism – and indeed is this sacred pairing aptly titled! Apocalyptic Mysticism features an exclusive track from both bands. VARATHRON unveil a hidden rare spell from 1993 reimagined in 2016 titled “The Mystic Papyrous.” On the flip, UNGOD let loose with “Sinister Forms of Fallen Stars,” a new hymn captured in 2021. From the depths of the cult, from the heights of black heavens, two wanderers on eternal journeys follow the Devil’s path!
