The third full-length album by the cult Norwegian Black Metal band.
Mayhem once again travels into the dark landscapes and emerges with the darkest record yet. Having proven themselves ahead of the times with “Grand Declaration of War”, “Chimera” is a total return to the blackness that made them, and Mayhem once again regains the throne of darkness that is rightfully theirs!
It is the fourth and last main Mayhem release to feature vocalist Sven Erik Kristiansen (Maniac). At the time of its release in 2004, Mayhem was still being sharply and routinely criticized in the Metal underground for straying from the Black Metal style on its foregoing album, "Grand Declaration Of War". The following times will see a full-fledged world tour and the legend will continue to grow!
TurboNatas of fellow Norwegian band Red Harvest provided the album artwork. The album art is a screenshot from the 1922 silent film Häxan.
Taking the streamlined cold technicality of "Grand Declaration Of War" and reaching back to the mind-numbing violence of the "Wolf's Lair Abyss" EP, Mayhem comes up with an album of impressive depth and extreme aggression…and further proof Blasphemer shouldn’t be cursed to live in the shadow of Euronymous another minute!
