Mayhem, the influential Norwegian black metal band who served as the subject of the recent feature film Lords of Chaos, will return with their next album in the fall of this year after inking a new record deal with Century Media Records.
The band’s sixth full-length LP will arrive on October 25th, and will be followed by a headlining tour of Europe that will kick off on October 31st in Nijmegen, Netherlands. Update: The album is called Daemon and you can listen to the first single, “Worthless Abominations Destroyed”.
“Once again Mayhem is writing a new chapter in its 35 year history,” the band stated. “We are excited to now have joined forces with Century Media and are eager to see what this partnership can do for us both in the future.”
Mayhem’s tumultuous story, which includes the violent deaths of early members Per “Dead” Ohlin and Øystein “Euronymous” Aarseth, was depicted in Lords of Chaos, a movie directed by Jonas Åkerlund and starring Rory Culkin, among others.
Mayhem’s current lineup includes longtime members Necrobutcher (bass), Hellhammer (drums), and Attila Csihar (vocals), alongside more recent recruits Teloch (guitar) and Ghul (guitar).
