Mayhem: Falsified and Hated

As the release date for Mayhem's latest, Daemon, draws near, the third track we get to hear off it once more prove that the black metal greats are still worthy of their status as one of the genre's finest acts. A six-minute epic, Falsified and Hated reveals the band in pitch dark mode, and absolutely unyielding.

"Mayhem will always be Mayhem," says Teloch. "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."

Mayhem currently consist of Necrobutcher (bass), Hellhammer (drums), Attila (vocals), Teloch (guitar) and Ghul (guitar). Daemon comes out October 25th, 2019 via Century Media.
