“MAYHEM’s live set is palpably evil, guided by the deranged vocal presence of Attila Csihar, who gave an unnerving performance on De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas…” — Loudwire

The cornerstone De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas was recently listed among Revolver Magazine’s 20 Essential Black Metal Albums while the record earned the #40 spot on Rolling Stone Magazine’s 100 Greatest Metal Albums Of All Time earlier this year. Further illuminating the keystone offering, the band self-released De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Alive late last year on CD, DVD, LP, and digitally. Captured in Norrköping, Sweden in 2015 during the band’s headlining set at the Black Christmass Festival, the show marked MAYHEM’s first time ever playing De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas in full.
De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Alive was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Tore Stjerna and NBS Audio and produced by vocalist Attila Csihar and guitarist Teloch with light production by Anne Weckstrom, stage design and production by Jonas Svensson, video recording by Thornfields Production, and video editing by Tamàs Tarczi.

“…Mysteriis… remains a singularly potent document, its expressions of alienation and nihilism lent an icy severity by Aarseth’s lacerating guitar buzz, session vocalist Attila Csihar’s arcane croak and presentation of Dead’s lyrical gothic terror and the pummeling drums of Hellhammer.” — Rolling Stone
“MAYHEM are a band that remind us of the power of the live concert experience, morphing concert into macabre ceremony…” – BeatRoute
“There are no added extras, there are no fan treats, for this performed is a treat in itself. A treat that still to this very day is as evil and bitter sounding as it gets…” — The Revival Music
“…a total sell-out [performance]. Tonight highlighted the fact that the one main aspect of the band that remains the most positive and defining is their music. Even after some twenty-three years, De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas was and still is an album that metal fans of all ages crave to see live.” — Metal Wani
“…convincing evidence that the grim magic of the mid-90s has faded not one corpse-painted jot.” – The Guardian
“Steady, dense waves of fog cascaded over the audience, setting an appropriate scene prior to Mayhem’s entrance. As an audience member, it was a surreal experience — eerily intriguing to say the least… Once the band took the stage and the performance began, it was immediately understood that despite how aged this album may be, it is still very much relevant. The delivery of these tracks was larger and more engaging than anything I had experienced on record…” — Nine Circles
“…a purposely gloomy and aggressive beast, and one that makes no concessions to outsiders, instead following its own willful and destructive path without any apology. Give it the time it deserves… and it will be with you forever.” — Team Rock on De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas
“De Mysteriis… stands tall to this day. For one of the most prominent names in the black metal scene… it’s amazing how challenging and terrifying MAYHEM still feel and when channeling the energies of this record; the result is beautifully hellish.” – Distorted Sound
