Black metal legends Mayhem have officially unveiled their sixth album, “Daemon”. The artwork and track listing have been released, while the release date was previously reported when the band signed to Century Media Records.
The full release reads as follows:
“ANNOUNCING OUR NEW ALBUM!
We are excited to announce that Mayhem will release our sixth studio album, entitled “Daemon” on October 25th.
The pre-order for all formats will start on August 30th – detailed info on all different formats will be made available soon!
“Daemon” isn’t a direct follow-up to “Esoteric Warfare”. Like all Mayhem albums of their time, “Daemon” is unto itself. The wolf solitary and singular. Indeed, “Daemon” also isn’t a new chapter in our storied career. Rather, it’s a new tome, authoritative yet wild in character. Composed and decomposed with the same lineup – Necrobutcher (bass), Hellhammer (drums), Attila (vocals), Teloch (guitars), and Ghul (guitars) – that handled “Esoteric Warfare” and performed “De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas” in its entirety over the last few years, “Daemon” isn’t a retrofit of classic songs like “Freezing Moon,” “Pagan Fears,” or “Buried by Time and Dust” either. That’s what the live album, “De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Alive” (2016), was for. “Daemon” is change, an opportunity for the maw of hell to open wider. Artwork by Daniele Valeriani
