    Searched the forum and also tried googling, but apparently we don't have a Mayhem thread?

    Anyway, Mayhem is releasing a new album, "Daemon", out October 25th, and yesterday a song was released:



    Sounds a lot more oldschool than anything they have done since 'De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas'. Personally I really liked Esoteric Warfare (2014), but this style is also cool. I also dig the production.

    Your thoughts?

    I am also going to see them live when they come to Copenhagen in late november. I have seen them once before, which was the anniversary tour, so they only played stuff from the first album, which was also cool, but I am hoping they will play newer stuff this time.

    Agreed.
    Seems that the band name sometimes gets in the way of the music.

    Best they've sounded since Grand Declaration of War.

    This sounds like itl be good, I saw them on the recent de mysterious nostalgia tour and they were pretty good live.

    Not a band I'm massively into even though I am heavily into bm but I'll check this out on the basis of the promo track for sure

    This is sick. Atilla sounds just as evil and disturbing as he did on De Mysteriis. Love the riffs too!

    Yup, hyped for this! Definitely sounds evil. Hopefully there are even more vicious tracks but I'm digging what I'm hearing so far with "Worthless Abomination Destroyed". The track name just has such a good ring to it.

    I can't really take Mayhem seriously after watching the Lords of Chaos movie :lol: But yeah, that song had a very evil vibe and the production was decent.

    That's the Hollywood version of the band, not to be taken seriously.

    I know, but it still ruined the band for me. The funniest part of it was what a poser Varg was made to be at first and then later Euronymous just being in it for the money/fame. It was just very bad overall. I wonder if it was even based on any facts, apart from the obvious "Varg stabbed Euronymous" part...

    Great riffs, not so great vocals...pretty much what I expect from Mayhem. Production sounds super heavy—I like it.

    Did you think they were performing sigil conjurings on the reg, getting lyrics from chicken entrails and going to family birthday parties in corpse paint? Even the trvest black metaler takes their wrist spikes off while doing number two and likes finding 20 bucks in their leather jacket.

    The new Mayhem tracks sound pretty good.

    That's not what I meant. What I meant was, I found it funny that Varg was made to be like a scared little kid trying to look cool at first, and then he went to extreme lengths trying prove himself... And Euronymous basically being the opposite and having the opposite development curve, if you can call it that.

    Either way, shitty movie.

    But the most important thing is that this new album is great. I didn't expect them to ever put out anything relevant again tbh, so this is a really pleasant surprise.

    This was not on my radar and it is black metal season for me (sounds cliche, but I typically listen to black metal in the fall/winter, and seeing as I live in Canada, it's already winter).

    Thanks for this, so far sounds awesome.

    I’m kinda like that, only I listen to black metal all year round. :lol: Okay, maybe not the super sunny days; but we had very few of those days this year. I live pretty close to Canada. We had a very cold summer, and didn’t have a fall, it just went directly into winter in September. It was -10 Fahrenheit out my doorstep this morning. :/ I should probably start recording again soon...
