For the last two years, I thought if Mayhem is planning to release a new long-play. And when nearly two months ago I saw the news that Mayhem will do it soon, I was surprised. And I being the fan didn’t know that they were in the process of creation of the new album. And two days ago it was released, sixth Mayhem album.
The hour, which lasts this album from the beginning to the end, dazzles with high-speed rhythms, powerful blast beats, amazing and atmospheric bass, gloomy choir singing, and absolutely outstanding vocal (Attila is the most impressive black metal vocalists).
If you like black metal, Mayhem especially, you 100% should buy this album.
The only thing that is not so good (in my opinion), it’s general “polishing” of sound, it’s absolutely not a raw black metal sound. I know that they made a great job, and it’s one of the most perfect metal releases of the year, but (in my opinion) black metal should be harshly and rawly.
P.S.: In my opinion, this is not the best their album and not a masterpiece, but it’s a really strong album, B+
