MAYHEM - Ordo Ad Chao CD
MAYHEM (Metal): Atilla (vocals); Blasphemer (guitar, bass guitar); Necrobutcher (bass guitar); Hellhammer (drum). Possibly inspired by the Freemasonry motto, ORDO AD CHAO (translation "Order to Chaos") is the fifth full-length album from Norway's controversial (suicides, murders, and other violent incidents shroud the band's history) Norge Black Metal founders, MAYHEM. The return of the divisive former TORMENTOR / ABORYM vocalist and Sun O))) collaborator Atilla Csihar (replacing Sven Erik Kristiansen, known to fans as Maniac, now in SKITLIV) makes this an especially noteworthy affair. While the album's brutally raw production value keeps the band's status as the kings of the genre firmly in place. Essential for fans of Hellhammer's drumming!
