Mayhem

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

Holy crud, it's amazing how much power this music can put you in when you're having a really bad day or even when you just wanna mosh around in your room with your hair flying. Who f*ing cares if I have heart problems; let the evil darkness begin. *OoooooOOOOo o O O o o o o o a h h h h h h h h h h h h h *
Read LORDS OF CHAOS for the true story. Varg is one sick twisted Nazi f**k. .........who wrote great f**king music.
The bio is all wrong. Pandora's bio's are always wrong.
Mayhem. Bunch of wannabes. Sick music tho.
Grishnackh is my role-model

RIP Dead.....his pleasure of death was tuesday

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
go suck Satans fuckn c**k
ha yea rituals f**k you dude
...mayhem... enough said.
they're alright. I'm not satanic either but i still love metal
That may be why I like them tho but I'm not satanic
F**k u man they're are a cult u dumb f**k they f**king have satanic rituals
This some f**ked up serious s**t! Hell hammer made a necklace from the guys skull and another ate his brain? Holy shut this is morbid XD
MAYHEM!!!!!
Holy Ungod >>>>>
However, their backstory is truly metal.
Oh my God his voice is goddamn hilarious. How can you take this seriously? Christ.
People need to stop hating on mayhem because there crazy as f*ck don't judge them for what they did but the music they make. \m/
Why the f**k are so many people b**ching over mayhem? Chimera is a good a** album.
demiband009
In NO!!! I'm not criticized okay!
demiband009
I don't know why Pandora listed him on dubstep for mayhem. Pandora please get off dubstep channel. Just please put it back on heavy metal station. I hate Pandora when mix up the genre. Geeze
You can't make TRUE BLACK METAL unless you eat a guys brain.
Where is the musical talent at ? Crazy acts to shock people and to draw them away from the fact that they have no musical ability.
norske92
You like these guys then check out the 'melvins'
norske92
Every time I go hunting this my album...
Now that's a bio.
Follow me for a large variety of metal
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.
Damn, I'm going to stay the f**k out of Norway!
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.
cr1ms0njihad
whoever did the bio knows nothing about this band
This is real black metal.
I f**king love this ^•^
f*gs
Varg killed Euronymous because he sent Varg death threats as well as formulating a plot to kidnap Varg Vikernes and make a snuff film torturing and killing him.
@Tyler Wilson what the f**k is the point of that statement? F**k off and die.
CLASSIC BLACK METAL !! HAILS !!
Link mistake: This bio is linked to an electronica artist with the same name :p
I like Black Metal and I'm Christian. Lolol
F**k all of you morons who haven't got one clue about Mayhem and yet judge this band. True Norwegian Black Metal
The review...... d e a r Satan could it be anymore wrong
VAAAAAAAAARG
There's no way of knowing why Varg killed him, but it was probably just because he's utterly insane.
@myheadisful l o f s t a r s. thats only what Varg said cuz no one was there when the two got into the fight plus Varg should be in jail cuz he was phyco and was blowin up a bunch of churches
This bio is bullshit, Varg killed Euronymous in self defense
