Formed in 1992, Mysteries were one of Poland's first Black Metal bands. They only released three extremely rare demos but it was enough to launch what would become one of the most potent scenes in Eastern Europe. The first of these demos was the brilliantly titled In The Dark and Sodomy, and like so many of these early Black Metal artifacts, the sound is reminiscent of Hellhammer, Beherit, and punk, also reminds me quite a bit of Hearse favorites, Verivala. This is precisely the sort of Black Metal the world is lacking today. No beauty, no introspection, no tremolo picking, no forest romanticism, just hate and shitty gear, what more do you need really?
