Mayhem- Live in Sarpsborg CD + DVD
THE OFFICIAL RELEASE OF MAYHEM’S 1990 APPEARANCE IN SARPSBORG - FEATURING DEAD, EURONYMOUS, NECROBUTCHER & HELLHAMMER.
Norway’s Mayhem are a band renowned for being the forefathers of the Norwegian black metal moment and one of the most important bands of the genre. Formed in the mid 1980’s, Mayhem has often made the headlines due to their bloody and dark history, but also due to their pioneering style which has inspired a whole generation & continues to do so.
‘Live in Sarpsborg’ now receives its debut official release on Peaceville, with new audio captured from a master source. The show, originally performed on 28th February 1990 was one of only a handful to feature the now legendary line-up of Dead, Euronymous, Hellhammer & Necrobutcher, & this particular Norwegian show was organised by Jon ‘Metalion’ Kristiansen of Slayer Mag fame, under the moniker of ‘Slayer Aid’.
Perfectly demonstrating the pure raw essence of Mayhem, the band surge through some of their early classics, from the ‘Deathcrush’ release to tracks which would later feature on their highly revered debut, ‘De Mysteriis Dom. Sathanas.
