I've enjoyed an album that sounds melancholic, dark and reflexive without being uselessly gothic and boring as many other releases around. Nice surprise.
It’s the type of release that ultimately props up black metal and keeps the subgenre fresh and varied.
Blistering (USA, English, 8/10), May 2008
Full of creativity, versatile songwriting, and the thundering punch of metal makes this record bound to gather some attention.
Album of the month! Deliver an album universally powerful and beautiful, nature-inspired and nature-glorifying.
“Mysticism” should cater to a fairly wide variety of listeners, as they cover a quite big spectrum, I could see fans of BORKNAGAR or MOONSORROW like this as well as those who enjoy Post Rock/Metal influences.
KHORS are something of a supergroup, featuring past and present members of Astrofaes and Hate Forest among others ... "Mysticism" then, offers plenty of meat to the veteran while also acting as a sound starting point for virgin of the ex-Soviet Bloc's grim delights.

Mysticism takes you on a frightening journey through the depressive state of man and nature share when in less than perfect sync with one another.
Pleasant, and addictive, opus of brilliant atmospheric Black Metal.
Khors is one talented unit that brings you through many layers and levels of emotions.
