New Road Report: Mayhem, Keep of Kalessin, Hate, Abigail Williams, Woe!
12/16/2011 2:02:22 PM by Frank

More reckless than Emperor, madder than Immortal, more rampaging than Burzum or Darkthrone, and grimmer than Gorgoroth, Mayhem have long since shed the trappings of orthodox black metal. But their claim to be "The One True..." is never in doubt. Wherever they roam, Mayhem are kings. As I wandered back to the car, trying to put what I'd just seen into context, I could only think of Nietzsche's warning not to gaze into the abyss overlong, for the abyss gazes also. And it is the Wolf's Lair.
