MAYHEM: Grand Declaration Of War (2018) LP

(gatefold sleeve, black vinyl, insert)

Mayhem's most controversial album, Grand Declaration is an extraordinary testament to the unique creative partnership of songwriter/guitarist Blasphemer and lyricist/vocalist Maniac. The latter is in his element, throwing grandiose spoken proclamations in alongside his inhuman screams. Likewise, Blasphemer’s hateful, dissonant guitar work and ever-twisting song structures are both visceral and cerebral, the songs only revealing their logic with repeated listens.

This 2018 remix and reimagining replaces the (purposely) clean, compressed and ultra-clinical production with a warm and analogue approach, giving the album a much more balanced and organic sound. Presented here on fine black vinyl with gatefold sleeve and insert (not pictured).

The album is discussed in length with interviews in the book Black Metal: Evolution of the Cult, also available at this store.
