Nothing sells records and concert tickets better then infamy, and no band understands that better than Norway's Mayhem. They could release an album of Christmas carols and their minions would still eat it up. That's not to say that their most recent effort (recent being 2007) Ordo Ad Chao is not worthy of mention. It provides just as much intense, creepy black metal as their 1993 classic De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, but who really cares about their music anymore? It's all about their past exploits. Mayhem is the band that took it the furthest. In the early '90s it was arson, murder, suicide, and necrophagia, right? What will they do next?! Gotta go to that show and buy that record to find out! It's too bad drummer Hellhammer is such a violent homophobic scumbag, 'cause otherwise they might be worthy of some support. ARIS WALES
