Mayhem - Mediolanum Capta Est 2LP
2015 rerelease by Peaceville. More info from the label: Mayhem formed in Oslo, Norway, in 1984 & are infamous as one of the early Scandinavian purveyors of black metal, made even more legendary after the well-documented murder of original Mayhem guitarist Euronymous in 1993. This live album was recorded at a performance at the Rainbow Club in Milan, Italy in November 1998. The line-up features original Mayhem vocalist Maniac, plus Hellhammer on drums, Necrobutcher on bass & Blasphemer on guitar. The show also features a guest appearance by now-current Mayhem vocalist Attila Csihar on the track "From the Dark Past". With a crystal clear sound & the noticeably stunning drum work of Hellhammer, the band themselves considered this worthy of being labelled an official release, as Mayhem storm through a strong set full of classics from old releases "Deathcrush" & "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas", to the post-Euronymous compositions as featured on "Wolf's Lair Abyss". Expect nothing but dark & chaotic black metal carnage. This double LP edition of "Mediolanum Capta Est" is presented on 180gm heavyweight black vinyl with gatefold sleeve.
