5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a "grand declaration"!, 13 May 2006
This review is from: Grand Declaration of War (Audio CD)
"GDOW", as it's known to so many Mayhem fans, is the flagship of the "new Mayhem", the band forged after the deaths of Euronymous and Dead. In truth, it's officially the sequel to "Wolf's Lair Abyss", the first EP outing of the band, born again after the blood-thirsty loss of two of its members, and it carries on mightily in the same tradition.

Gone is the snowstorm sludge of "DMDS", replaced by the razor-edged guitar of Blasphemer, the "Hammer Horror" vocals of Maniac and a rejuvenated Hellhammer and Necrobutcher, drawn together once again to create the defining, blitzkrieg black metal rhythm section of all time.

This is uncompromising music as you would expect from the godfathers of black metal. Experimental? Yes! This is most definitely a new direction in black metal.

Listen with your ears, not just your eyes or your memories.

Thankfully it wasn't the new sound of mayhem and listening in 2014 sounds worse now than it ever did.Maniacs vocals never suited to mayhem and just be glad they never made another grand declaration.
