Customer Reviews

best Mayhem album yet

Much better recording quality than the "Ordo Ad Chao" CD. All the guitar, vocal, and drums are clear. Atilla still has that inhuman dying groan going on with all the usual Mayhem goodness.

Buy it! best one since "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas"

If you don't get it, don't rate it!!

If you don't get what Mayhem have been doing all these years, then don't rate their albums. They are merciless, dark and daring in their approach to metal and always have been. I love this record. It's SOOO much better than the previous, unlistenable album "Ordo ad Chao." The production on that record was awful. I don't care if it's black metal, there are too many ways to make a decent album sound good these days for it to have such dreadful production. Regardless of that one, this band is timeless and if you dont' like it, fine but don't rate it if you don't understand. Music is an expression, not a series of notes that always have to be pleasing or in unison to some idea of what YOU may have that music should be. These guys get it, and so do I.

As evil as it gets!

Dark, dark stuff. makes you want to grow some horns
