MISTIK (Malaysia) 
Sesalan Airmata
Psychic Scream Entertainment, 1998
Great cover artwork but not the music. Black metal is what they play and while playing live, MISTIK really caught the attention of the crowd but in this EP they have let the crowd down (or maybe it's just me ?). There's an instrumental track played by DARK NIRRAJIM and the instrumental version Perjanjian Syaitan (with vocals can be heard in Panggilan Pulau Puaka 1 compilation) and the best one this EP. The rest ?  Just plain mediocre black metal and quite exhausting listening until the EP end.  It will be good if  Perjanjian Syaitan were put first in this tape and I can stop and easily rewind the tape and listen to the only best track here. Well, this song is just different with MISTIK music. It has this great, simple riff and being repeated all over the 7 minutes of this song.  But this EP is quite old actually since now MISTIK has progressed a lot when I heard 2 new songs in Storm Of Nebiula Compilation 2. They have improved immensely and that is a good news to Malaysian black metal scene !
1/5

MISTIK / RITUAL ORCHESTRA (Malaysia / Indonesia)
Perjanjian Ilmu Hitam
Psychic Scream Entertainment, 1999
Two Psychic Scream Entertainment's most famous black metal band in one CD (actually, at the time of this review being made, these are the only two black metal band in this label). Wow, what a great CD... MISTIK features songs from their Airmata Sesalan EP while RITUAL ORCHESTRA songs are (as said) taken from Satan My Embrace EP (this songs also available in Seeking Immortal album). I don't want to comment further. I don't like it and I never will. Just check my review on the respective releases elsewhere.
