Mayhem

Mayhem are probably the most famous (or infamous) Black Metal band ever. They are well known for the suicide of their second vocalist, who's stage name was, ironically, Dead. The murder of their founding member and guitarist Euronymous, by the hands of Burzum mastermind Varg Vikernes (another irony because he played bass on Mayhem's debut album), and their history of violent stage performance (noted at one of their earlier concerts where Dead performed self-mutilation and pigs heads were mounted on stakes at the front of the stage).

Mayhem are probably the most famous (or infamous) Black Metal band ever. They are well known for the suicide of their second vocalist, who's stage name was, ironically, Dead. The murder of their founding member and guitarist Euronymous, by the hands of Burzum mastermind Varg Vikernes (another irony because he played bass on Mayhem's debut album), and their history of violent stage performance (noted at one of their earlier concerts where Dead performed self-mutilation and pigs heads were mounted on stakes at the front of the stage). The band would also bury their clothes prior to performances. Euronymous was the owner of a record shop by the name of Helvete (the Norwegian word for Hell) and held meetings with other Black Metal band members in the store's basement. They referred to themselves as The Black Metal Circle or The Black Metal Mafia. Euronymous was also the creator of the True Norwegian Black Metal scene which was comprised of Burzum, Emperor, Darkthrone and a few other bands within the scene. Their first album, De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, released in 1994, is legendary and is seen as a hallmark of the Black Metal scene. https://mayhemofficial.bandcamp.com/ | https://mayhemsom.bandcamp.com/ « hide
