Fourth and last video in our live covers series…
Øystein “Euronymous” Aarseth (22/03/1968 – 10/08/1993) and Per “Dead” Yngve Ohlin (16/01/1969 – 8/04/1991) of the infamous Mayhem, who died horrible deaths in 1991 and 1993.
“I first heard Mayhem in 1986 through a friend who was doing a fanzine named Cerebral Haemorrhage. The production was raw, the drums were loud and the vocals were otherworldly. Through Slayer Magazine and a few other information outlets I followed the evolution of the band and their morbid philosophy. For sure they were different, more extreme and more committed than most. A bunch of charismatic lunatics with an evil agenda!
The demise of Dead and Euronymous was undoubtedly a tragedy for the extreme metal scene. I can only try and imagine what the two would have created!” (Carlo Strappa / Resurrecturis)
