Zyklon was formed by Emperor mainmain Samoth (here going by the name Zamoth), shortly after Emperor initially called it a day (despite the name similarity, this band has nothing do with Samoth's earlier side project, Zyklon-B). Drummer Trym joined him, and later two other black metal personalities were recruited, these being Destructhor (from Myrkskog) and Daemon from Limbonic Art (since replaced by another Myrkskog member, Sechtdamon). The resulting album, World Ov Worms, isn't the pure black metal album that one might expect, but more a ferocious death/black hybrid, sounding quite a bit like the more recent Behemoth releases. The lyrics feature another Emperor connection, being written by former drummer Faust, and are more of a political/futuristic slant rather than the more traditional black/death themes. Since then two more albums have been released, and following a hiatus of a couple of years, Samoth announced the band was no more in January 2010.
