Norwegian black metal tyrants Mayhem have released their new video single “Voces Ab Alta,” which appears on the act’s recently announced ‘Atavistic Black Disorder / Kommando’ EP through Century Media Records (out July 9th – pre-order).
“Highly-praised visual artist Costin Chioreanu (Ghost, Opeth, Napalm Death) ingeniously translated the track’s overarching darkness into to visual form. “Voces Ab Alta” was initially recorded during the band’s Daemon sessions but has remained previously unreleased,” states a press release.
They add, “The seven-song EP features three original tracks (“Voces Ab Alta,” “Black Glass Communion,” and “Everlasting Dying Flame”) as well as covers of classic punk tracks from Discharge (“In Defense Of Our Future”, Dead Kennedys (“Hellnation”), Rudimentary Peni (“Only Death”), and the Ramones (“Commando”).”
