Mayhem : news update

Season Of Mist Records have issued the following MAYHEM update:

As some of you may already know, Mayhem have set "Ordo Ab Chao" as the title of their new album, due later this year. The band's upcoming CD will mark their first release with vocalist Attila Csihar (TORMENTOR, ABORYM) since their 1993 album, "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas". Attila rejoined Mayhem in November 2004 as the replacement for departed singer Maniac (real name: Sven Erik Kristiansen).

In a recent interview with Decibel magazine, bassist Necrobutcher (real name: Jorn Stubberud) said about Attila's addition to the group: "It's the inspiration we all needed in Mayhem. Attila is more committed to the band than almost all three of us together, and that inspires us too. The songs from the rehearsal place sound great. We still have the same aggressiveness. Everything you want from Mayhem is there. We didn't give in to any kind of commercial thoughts in any way. It's a step from our last album again. If you have our discography, then you will see that every album is completely different, which has something to do with the fact that we usually take two or three or four years in between each recording. There's only so much you can do with a guitar and a drum kit and a bass. We want to show our fans and ourselves that MAYHEM will always be quality over quantity. I'm pleased to say that we have released 38 songs in 21 years. It's all those bootlegs that make the Mayhem collection look so fucking huge."
