Mayhem (opens in new tab) have released a stream of their new single Worthless Abominations Destroyed.

It’s the first material taken from the Norwegian outfit’s upcoming studio album Daemon, which will arrive on October 25 through Century Media.

Guitarist and songwriter Teloch says: “After teasing you guys for over six months, it's finally time to show you what we have been up to in the studio this summer. 

"Here's Worthless Abominations Destroyed, a track that was made with the intention to have this ‘all is lost and hopeless’ feeling.”

Daemon will be released on CD, limited edition CD Mediabook, gatefold LP, limited edition deluxe LP box set and on digital and streaming platforms.

The record's striking cover art was created by Italian designer Daniele Valeriani, who has previously worked with artists including Lucifer’s Child and Dark Funeral.

Speaking previously about the follow-up to 2014’s Esoteric Warfare, Teloch said previously: “I think this album will be most pleasing for old and new fans.

“As most of our devoted fans know, Mayhem has never released two albums that sound the same. That’s the case this time around as well. 

“We simplified stuff, but at the same time tried out some new stuff to keep it interesting for ourselves and, also for our fans that dig that we are doing something new on each album.”

Mayhem will head out on tour with special guests Gaahls Wyrd and Gost across Europe later this year.
