MYSTIFIER - T.E.A.R. / Aleister Crowley CD
‘The Evil Ascension Returns’ is Mystifier’s second recording, and it documents some minor elements of progression since they released their first demo one year prior. However, it is still very much in the vein of ‘Tormenting the Holy Trinity’, as everything that made that demo so great is present here, but just in a slightly more refined form. This refinement however does not detract at all from the band’s raw, bestial savagery, as they are still making sloppy, barbaric black/death the way it was being done back then.
