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

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
sick people at the time. a little ahead of where death metal was taking it, to the point they took it so seriously they started believing they were these characters. they acted more like cult members than a band. I bet they're ashamed in a way because they look like idiots now. modern day they dress like everyone else, even on stage other than the vocalist they have come out looking black metal and all evil lol. they're just s**tty in a lot of ways you shouldn't deny
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!!!!!
xXx
I've always really liked this album Chimera by them
Impious Devious Leper Lord is a great song by them. this is one that's worthy of admiration.
Holy Ungod >>>>>
it's ridiculous how they suck one album then not the next then off and on sound like s**t..
However, their backstory is truly metal.
Oh my God his voice is goddamn hilarious. How can you take this seriously? Christ.
I first heard about the legend of Mayhem over ten years ago. I really wanted to go see them play when the toured the US this last year. I regret missing that one
De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, just a big mess of melodies. great potential with the acceptance among the metal or death metal world, of they're troubles brought them where they are today. Guess what tho mayhem is just a band that people and metal heads are fascinated reading about. I mean I think it's pretty damn crazy. lead singer dead kills himself, then Euronymous was rumored to have eaten a piece of the mans brain lol. then the controversy with his being murdered by Vikernes. very interesting
European Legions was worthy of applause as well.
Chimera is a good album also. the best sounding one lol
Mayhem is better than Emperor in my opinion. black metal is very dull to me.i grew out of that whole thing when they started selling out. over all there is Dimmu Borgir and Cradle of Filth. for reason. they were always better. and it's not about who eats the most brain tissue and kills for real, it's music your listening to. even tho it sounds like high school kids banging in the basement. i mean i play music, we sounded like this in the day.
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
