A true black metal supergroup, Zyklon-B paired the Emperor core of Ihsahn and Samoth with Satyricon's Frost and Dødheimsgard vocalist Aldrahn. This was really more of a side project, as the main bands were in full force in 1995 with the Blood Must Be Shed EP, a three-track affair of blistering old-school black metal, was released. Eventually the project ran its course and Samoth formed the more well-known Zyklon, which, despite the name similarity, is not regarded as a continuation or a relation to this band.
