French multi-instrumentalist Stefan Kozak was the man behind two
one-man bands. He coined his
frenzied hybrid of classically-influenced keyboards and wall of fuzz and distortion a` la Burzum with Mystic Forest starting with
Green Hell (1999).
Waltz In the Midst of Trees (2002) even featured "collaborations" between Kozak and Beethoven, Bach, Schubert, Tchaikovsky.
The sound of his other project Eikenskaden was even more grandiose, bordering on self-parody.
Despite all the noise, The Black Laments Symphonie (2001) and The Last Danse (2002) were actually hummable and stately.
Mystic Forest's Romance (2004)
Eikenskaden's 665.999 (Tumult, 2004),
There Is No Light At The End Of The Tunnel (2005) and
You Will Hope I Had Died (BlackMetal.com, 2010)
were just theatrical exercises in melodic black metal.
