    Current 93 are an English experimental music group, working since the early 1980s in folk-based musical forms. The band was founded in 1982 by David Tibet, who has been Current 93’s only
    constant member, although Steven Stapleton (of Nurse with Wound) has appeared on nearly every Current 93 release. Michael Cashmore has also been a constant contributor since Thunder Perfect Mind. Douglas P. of Death in June has played on well over a dozen Current 93 releases, and Steve Ignorant of Crass (using the name Stephen Intelligent), Boyd Rice, runologist Freya Aswynn, Nick Cave, Björk, Andrew W.K., Anohni, Baby Dee, Will Oldham, Ben Chasny, Rose McDowall, have also lent their talents over the years. Current 93 have released over twenty albums and many singles as well.

    Much of Current 93’s early work was similar to late 1970s and early 1980s industrial music: abrasive tape loops, droning synthesizer noises and Tibet’s distorted, excoriating vocals. The earlier recordings reflect his preoccupation with death, Christ, mysticism, Aleister Crowley (Tibet borrow-ed the term «93 Current» from Crowley – the 93 Current being the current of Thelema or Agape), Tibetan Buddhism, Gnosticism, runes, swastikas, Noddy, The Wicker Man, and a variety of other ridiculous occult notions. The later to present-day period of Current 93’s recordings increasingly reflect Tibet’s interest in Christian mysticism and apocalypse.

    Three years in its creation, birthing and borning, The new album it being released on 3, highly over-priced formats.

    David Tibet says the following about “If a City is set upon a Hill”… actually: What he has to say is THAT MUCH ridiculous, that I omitted to include on here in its completeness. An excerpt?

    VERY ‚meaningful‘ and interesting, indeed….

    BACKWORLD are known to most people from the World Serpent era, when they were the most famous representatives of Neo / Psychedelic Folk together with Current 93, Death In June and Sol Invictus. In the period from 1996 to 2011 they released 7 albums, and since then nothing new has been heard from them. On «Sacred & Profane Songs» Joseph Budenholzer has now selected 11 songs from this era, polished them all up in the studio and at the same time had them carefully remastered by Bobby Bachinger.
    In addition, there are two new tracks that Joseph recorded especially for this album in late 2019 ( In This New Dark Age & Love and Its Disintegration).
