I will present you with this fornication Something in space time is logically ill. What can be seen in the rear view mirror Expectancy was a Mephisto's gasp Your past was never quite there There was nothing that loose in the Constituents of your substance It does indeed exist in parts of your Neural commitments to the mind body Or does evil exist?

Chimera (Mayhem album). At the time of the album's release in 2004, Mayhem was still being sharply and routinely criticized in the metal underground for straying from the black metal style on its previous album, Grand Declaration of War. Contents.

Many people brush this album off as 'mallcore' black metal or as Mayhem's sell out album simply due to the crisp production process, but I really beg to differ. In fact, this album could be one of their most coherent works since De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, bristling with edgy, atonal nasty riffs, ear shattering drumming, and a slightly more tolerable performance from Maniac. In terms of the production, this is where the album is much maligned.
