Mayhem (Metal)

Formed around 1985 by Necrobutcher and guitarist Euronymous (born Oystein Aarseth), Mayhem was the first black metal band from Norway to make a serious impact in their homeland, which in the early '90s developed a burgeoning underground scene rife with violent, sometimes anti-Christian activity, as evidenced by Mayhem's non-musical history. Drummer Hellhammer, who at one time worked in a mental hospital, is the only remaining member of the band's prime-period lineup. Lead vocalist Dead committed suicide in 1991 (two years after joining the band) by shooting himself in the head; Hellhammer made a necklace using some of his skull fragments, and Euronymous reportedly cooked and ate pieces of Dead's brain. Euronymous, in turn, was stabbed to death while in his underwear on August 10, 1993, by the band's bass player, Count Grishnackh (born Christian Vikernes). Grishnackh's alleged motive was jealousy over the fact that Euronymous had a more evil reputation; he inflicted 23 separate wounds, it was also rumored, so as to outdo rival band Emperor's drummer, Faust, who was convicted in the stabbing death of a homosexual acquaintance. When police arrested Grishnackh, they found over 150 kg of stolen dynamite in his house, complete with a plan to blow up a large church on a religious holiday. Grishnackh went on to pursue his electronic-influenced project Burzum while in prison; meanwhile, Euronymous' parents requested that his bass tracks be erased from Mayhem's 1994 album, De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, (which featured session vocalist Attila Csihar). Still, thanks to growing world-wide interest in Norwegian black metal, Mayhem product has continued to appear on the shelves into the next century. Hellhammer also put together a new Mayhem lineup, which has toured sporadically. During one such tour in 2003, a concert-goer in Norway received a fractured skull as a sheep head flew from the stage while bandmember Blasphemer was cutting the head away from the torso. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

The bio is all f**ked up. So many facts are wrong. Who ever wrote this either doesn't know anything about mayhem or black metal or just didn't care. If you're going to write a complete bio, make it presentable and check your f**king facts

all those Scandinavian black metal bands are insane, living up to their viking root its just insanity. if anything you got to love them for their chaotic antics and devotions to everything black metal stands for, lead singers murdering their guitarist for playing bad and then smiling about it and the church burning that s**t is just crazy, i'm not saying i condone any of that. i'm just saying that's just some devotion to their dark beliefs and viking roots

I love BURZUM, Vikernes' band, so I decided to try these guys out and it is pure trash. I love what these guys did for black metal but the music is horrendous.

Don't forget dissection. Jon was a true believer of the left hand path and totally inspired all other true black metal bands from europe by murder arson and then taking his own life on his own terms after playing tons of sold out shows after being released from prison

So there is some black metal that I like.......

True Metal is the only form of music that is played here.

It is not only the best form of music, but also the only style of music that let you truly express yourself.

Follow me for many forms of True Metal.

No bands formed after 1999 as 2000 was the official downfall of music.

Look up the documentary, Until the Light Takes Us. Its an interesting look back at the chain of events that lead to the church burnings and the murder.
