Current 93 is an experimental gothic folk band that has been actively recording since 1982. At the helm is David Tibet (né Bunting), who was born in Malaysia from English parents and emigrated to England in his childhood. Originally releasing harrowing {{Industrial}} music, Tibet transitioned to a vein of Neofolk known as Apocalyptic Folk by 1988. He has worked with members of Music/DeathInJune, {{Music/Coil}} and Music/ThrobbingGristle, as well as Creator/ThomasLigotti, Tiny Tim and Shirley Collins. Steven Stapleton of {{Music/NurseWithWound}} is also a regular collaborator, appearing on nearly every Current 93 release (and Tibet also regularly appears on Nurse with Wound releases.) Recurring themes of his work include religion (primarily esoteric offshoots of Christianity), mythology, philosophy and nihilism.

* WeAllDieSomeday: Considering Tibet's predilection for apocalypse scenarios and Christian mysticism, this trope is entirely inevitable. There's even a song called, "Anyway, People Die".
