Mayhem have shared their new song “Everlasting Dying Flame” from their upcoming EP, Atavistic Black Disorder / Kommando.
“Everlasting Dying Flame” follows the previously released “Voces Ab Alta,” which was written during the band’s recording sessions for the 2019 album Daemon, but has remained unreleased up until now.
Watch the “Everlasting Dying Flame” visualizer below.
Atavistic Black Disorder / Kommando includes three original songs (“Voces Ab Alta,” “Black Glass Communion,” “Everlasting Dying Flame”) along with covers of punk rock tracks from The Dead Kennedys, Discharge, The Ramones, and Rudimentary Peni.
“I always had some punk influences,” says vocalist Attila. “I guess it comes from my childhood when we were constantly looking for more extreme music. That’s how I discovered DEAD KENNEDYS, GBH, THE EXPLOITED, SEX PISTOLS, U.K. SUBS, DISCHARGE, RUDIMENTARY PENI and so on, in the early ’80s, alongside heavy metal. But then I discovered VENOM. That was a game changer!”
Necrobutcher adds: “We got some extra time in the studio recording the ‘Daemon’ album two years ago, all band members were asked to punch in two cover tracks for some extra material. I chose songs by DEATHSTRIKE (‘The Truth’) and DEATH (‘Evil Dead’) which were both used as the bonus tracks on the album. My other contribution was to bring in two old members because of their obvious connection with punk: Maniac on the DEAD KENNEDYS track and Billy (Messiah) on the DISCHARGE track and some of the others.”
Mayhem’s new EP Atavistic Black Disorder / Kommando comes out July 9th. Pre-order it here.
