No other record will court the same recording process of Mayhem’s 1994 release “De Mysteriis Dom Satanas”. A record that quite literally almost fragmented a band in its process, but one which is heralded as a masterpiece by black metal fans the world over.
Ahead of an Australian run performing the watershed album in full, Mayhem frontman Attila Csihar spoke to Metal Wani’s Jake Patton about the bands anticipation to return to Australia, how much they love the fans and how excited the band is to be performing these once in a lifetime shows.
They also discuss the situation around why it took so long to perform the album in its entirety live, the additional aspect of performing these tracks and honoring the performers who weren’t able to see them released upon the world and how important it is to make sure that the performances are the best they can deliver.
They talk about the current difficulties of performing and touring globally in light of protests against other extreme metal acts, before closing out by talking about Mayhem’s plans in 2018 and beyond.
