02:15 - !J.O.O.E.! I guess the difference with Mayhem is that they went even more extreme and unusal, whereas most bands jump on a more mainstreamed or watered down sound.
02:14 - snake? snaaaake! It's funny, bands that have been around for a while often get criticised for changing their sound but at the same time get stick for not changing things up
02:11 - !J.O.O.E.! I personally don't like Mayhem between DMDS and Ordo, but at least they tried new things. Probably the only original BM band that's better now than they were. Quite a feat considering the route most old bands go.
