Mayhem have witnessed many line-up changes due to the craziest circumstances and even the loss of Blasphemer, who decided to focus on his other band Ava Inferniin 2008, did not stop the band. Activities mainly revolved around live shows, until the right balance was found again with the recruitment of Morten "Teloch" Iversen. The guitarist had already made a name for himself with Nidingr, which is highly regarded amongst black metal enthusiasts yet remained mostly an underground phenomenon. Now his first compositional work with Mayhem is unveiled
and demonstrates how perfectly Teloch has captured the essence and spirit of the Norwegian legend by clearly linking the band back to its roots, while at the same time taking a step forward into the spearhead position of the genre instead of dwelling in nostalgia. is a full-scale assault of total dark savagery of freezing riffs with Attila's lyrics entirely based on a concept dealing with the esoteric experimentations of the nuclear powers during the cold war. The album proves once again and beyond doubt that Mayhem are the Alpha and the Omega of black metal!
