Mysticum (1992 - 2000) was a Norwegian industrial black metal band.
In 1992 a band called Sabazios, rose from the fertile ashes of Norway's hateful black metal. They were one of a kind in this scene with their cold and aggressive sound, as they chose to use the industrial drumming from a drum machine. Their first demos, "Wintermass" and "Medusas tears" were released in 1993. Euronymous of Mayhem signed Mysticum on his Deathlike Silence Productions (DSP) label immediately after hearing them. After their first demos, the band decided to change their name to something more recognizable than Sabazios to Mysticum.In 1996 drummer Hellhammer of Mayhem joined the band for a short time, but it did not work out. Mysticum decided to release their debut In The Streams of Inferno on Fullmoon Productions. They also contributed with the songs "Kingdom Comes" and "In Your Grave" on the Nordic Metal: A tribute to Euronymous compilation album. Some songs for their second album Planet Satan
