MAYHEM Announces New Album Daemon
Mayhem has recently been teasing a new album and now we've got some details. The band will release Daemon on October 25, which was mixed by Tore Stjerna (Drawn And Quartered, Paganizer) at NBS Audio Studio, mastered by Thomas Johansson (Scar Symmetry, Soilwork, Miseration) at The Panic Room, and given awesome artwork by Italian designer Daniele Valeriani (Lucifer's Child, Dark Funeral).
Here's what guitatist Morten Bergeton "Teloch" Iversen had to say about Daemon.
"Mayhem will always be Mayhem. If we put the genre game aside a bit, no one else sounds like Mayhem. Even when 'De Mysteriis' came out, it was not at first considered to be a black metal album, if my memory serves me right. Tricky to label this band. Metal would be the most fitting; it's not pure black metal, in my opinion. Not sure it has ever been actually, despite what the general opinion is. People can call it whatever they want. If it's black metal to them, then fine. We don't really care. To me, it's important to keep some sort of black metal vibe at least."
"I think this album will be most pleasing for old and new fans. As most of our devoted fans know, Mayhem has never released two albums that sound the same. That's the case this time around as well. As I said, we simplified stuff, but at the same time tried out some new stuff to keep it interesting for ourselves and, also for our fans that dig that we are doing something new on each album."
Stay tuned for a single soon.
