MAYHEM Releases Visual Masterpiece For ‘Black Glass Communion’

Mayhem 2021

Last month, MAYHEM released their already highly praised new EP Atavistic Black Disorder / Kommando, which showcases the bands influences in the best possible way!

Now the most fearsome black metal band has teamed up with renowned filmmaker Zev Deans to create a visual masterpiece for the song “Black Glass Communion.”

The video premiere is set for 18.00pm CET today and can be viewed below.

Zev Deans comments on the collaboration with MAYHEM as follows: “When approaching a metal music video, some might roll their eyes and think to themselves ‘how many times do I have to watch a satanic ritual sacrifice before I see something new?’

“But for any true Satanist, ritual is an essential part of life that you must repeat again and again with the same sincerity and enthusiasm that you brought to your first time. The very nature of ritual is that it is repetitive, a mantra, a drone that is echoed through different bodies and different times. 

In my approach to ‘Black Glass Communion,’ this truth was unwavering. Now, you must look deep into the depths of the black glass and see what emerges before you.”

The EP features cover versions of bands like DISCHARGE, DEAD KENNEDYS, RUDIMENTARY PENI and RAMONES.

The band also recruited Billy Messiah and Maniac, who took over vocal performances on two songs!

In addition to the cover versions, a previously unreleased track called “Voces Ab Alta” is featured on the EP, which continues the musical journey alongside “Black Glass Communion” and “Everlasting Dying Flame,” which were used as bonus tracks for the 2019 album Daemon.

The EP thus closes the capital, which was opened with the release of Daemon back in 2019 and illuminates the band once again in typical unusual and surprising-sounding way.

The US-street date for the physical formats is set for September 10th, 2021!
