MAYHEM To Record New Album In The Mountains Of Norway

Norwegian black metallers MAYHEM have abandoned their plans to record their new album, "Chimera", at Puk Studios in Copenhagen, Denmark. "Instead they will be bringing a mobile studio into the mountains of Norway for about five weeks or so," reads a statement on the band's official web site. "The drum tracks will probably be laid down in a studio in Oslo and then those files will be brought with them to wherever they stay in the mountains. They will also be accompanied by their technician for this recording, Børge Finstad. The band feel that their surroundings in this process will help give the album a great atmosphere."

The follow-up to 2000's "Grand Declaration Of War" will include the following working songtitles, among others:

01. Rape Humanity With Pride
02. Chimera
03. Dark Night Of The Soul
04. Deathwhore

An early 2004 release through Season Of Mist Records is expected.
