By the power of darkness and with the might of black-hearted will no two Mayhem albums have been or will ever be the same.
Over the course of Mayhem’s storied and ground breaking 35-year career – from 1987's Deathcrush through 2014's Esoteric Warfare – the Norwegians have continuously challenged the orthodoxy of the genre they helped create.
In 2019, Mayhem released their latest studio album, Daemon. Five years in the making, Daemon isn’t a direct follow-up to Esoteric Warfare. This album also isn’t a new chapter in Mayhem’s storied career. Rather, it’s a new tone, authoritative yet wild in character. Daemon is change, an opportunity for the maw of hell to open wider. The album is also the byproduct of irascible and captious individuals. Anger, frustration, and the continued struggle to push – at whatever cost – the band’s music forward are at the dark heart of Mayhem’s newest album.
The success of Daemon becomes evident on the international charts. Mayhem reached No.18 in the German Album Charts, No.8 in the Finnish Combined Charts, No.4 Finnish Physical Charts and No.35 in the Austrian Album Charts. In November 2019 Mayhem toured alongside GosT and Gaahls Wyrd through Europe and sold out most of their shows.
