2014 sees MAYHEM welcome the 30th anniversary of the single most notorious and important band in the history of black metal. With the band’s four revolutionary full-lengths, a legacy of boundless extremity, and an ethic rooted firmly in the principle of no compromise, MAYHEM are the archetype that three generations of black metal bands follow as law. As they enter their 30th year, MAYHEM reign as kings of the underground; ensuring that their shadow will be cast not just over the first 30 years of an entire genre to date, but for the next 30 years to come as well.
‘Esoteric Warfare’ showcases a band who follow their own path in extreme music, one that is equally violent and turbulent.
