“…convincing evidence that the grim magic of the mid-90s has faded not one corpse-painted jot.” – The Guardian
Norwegian black metal pioneers MAYHEM have been commemorating the release of their 1994 landmark De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas full-length. The record recently earned the #40 spot on Rolling Stone Magazine’s 100 Greatest Metal Albums Of All Time, the prestigious publication noting, “…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.”
Further illuminating the keystone offering, the band self-released De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Alive late last year on CD, DVD, LP, and digitally. Capturedin 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.
The vinyl edition of De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Alive quickly sold out but a second pressing is now available both stateside and abroad. In the US, 250 copies of De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Alive are available on gold vinyl. To purchase, point your browser HERE. In Europe, the record comes available in black (666), purple (222), and purple with black haze (112). To purchase go to THIS LOCATION.
