Norway's MAYHEM Mixing New Album

Legendary Norwegian black metallers MAYHEM are mixing their new album at Mølla Studio in Gjerstad, Norway for an early 2014 release.

Asked if MAYHEM has begun working on material for the follow-up to 2007's "Ordo Ad Chao", the group's bassist, Jørn Stubberud (a.k.a. Necrobutcher), told Total Rock Radio in August 2012, "I think that we are not a traditional band in that matter, that we make an album every year and then do a tour with that. 'Cause we don't feel it's necessary to do that — we do an album when we feel like doing an album. It's true — all the guys have some other projects also; like Hellhammer [drums] has ARCTURUS, Attila [Csihar, vocals] has VOID OV VOICES and SUNN O))). It takes time to come up with some good stuff, and we don't wanna rush anything."

MAYHEM was honored in the "Metal" category at the 36th annual Spellemann awards (the Norwegian equivalent to the Grammy Awards) for "Ordo Ad Chao".

"Ordo Ad Chao" entered the Norwegian album chart at position No. 12, the band's highest position ever.
