Mayhem – Wolf’s Lair Abyss

Mayhem is a Norwegian black metal band formed in 1984 in Oslo, Norway. They are regarded as one of the pioneers of the influential Norwegian black metal scene.

This is their 1998 Ep Wolf’s Lair Abyss with former member Maniac back to handle the vocal chores again with his inhuman, ungodly screams. This release also saw their first since guitarist Euronymous was murdered. Tracks here are technical and faster with barbaric and brutal excellence. “Elite Black Metal” according to drummer Hellhammer. Importantly, they also took the more detailed and creative step for future material to come. This blasphemous 5-tracker Ep will surely haunt the living wits out of you. Highly recommended.
