Apocalyptic Folk

As a descriptor, apocalyptic folk predates and was used by David Tibet to describe the music of his band Current 93 during a period in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Initially, Tibet did not intend to imply connection with the folk music genre; rather, that Current 93 was made by "apocalyptic folk, or guys." The term was applied to most artists on the now-defunct World Serpent Distribution company and music influenced directly by C93's "Thunder Perfect Mind" era.
