MYSTICUM TO INFERNO METAL FESTIVAL 2016
We are proud to welcome Mysticum to our line-up for Inferno Metal Festival 2016! The band is one of the early bands in the Norwegian black metal scene, with a history all the way back to 1992. Their debut album “In the Streams of Inferno” made furore back in the 90s when it was released, and last year they returned with their mighty new album “Planet Satan”. Finally the band will play in Norway for the first time in 20 years and they bring with them their biggest production they have ever had. This is going to be a hell of a show that no one should miss!
MAYHEM – NILE – SODOM – EXODUS – MARDUK – VADER – MYSTICUM – NIFELHEIM – GORGUTS – ICS VORTEX – BLOOD RED THRONE – ORDER – CRAFT – MISTUR – THE 3RD ATTEMPT – THAW – PSYCROPTIC – MORK – LUCIFER'S CHILD – ORKAN – ABYSSION – SCARRED
Mysticum was formed back in 1992 under the moniker Sabazios. In 1993 they changed the name to Mysticum. The Norwegians' debut album, “In the Streams of Inferno”, was originally slated to be released on Euronymous' Deathlike Silence Productions. That did not happened, but the band continued on with their unique style of industrial black metal on Full Moon Production, and later on Peaceville. In 2014 they released their follow-up to “In the Streams of Inferno”, a critical acclaimed album called “Planet Satan”. The band has not played in Norway for 20 years and what better place to do their return for a Norwegian concert than on Inferno Metal Festival 2016? Mysticum promises a huge production with a full set live show and a once in a life time experience. This is something you can't miss!

Founded back in 1988, Suffocation used three years to devolve their unique sound and style of death metal, until the released of the EP “Human Waste” and their legendary debut album “Effigy of the Forgotten” in 1991. The band released several albums that are considering as classics today during the nineteens, before disbanding in 1998. Suffocation reformed in 2002 and has since then steadily given out great records. Suffocation had a massive influence on the death metal genre and pioneered the balance between brutal and technical sounds commonly heard in modern death metal. The band is still one of the best in the genre – something they will show at Inferno Metal Festival 2016!
