1988 - 1994
____________________________

III. 1988 - 1991
In 1988, Swedish vocalist Per Yngve Ohlin (Dead) and local drummer Jan Axel Blomberg (Hellhammer) joined the band.
Dead had already provided vocals for the Stockholm-based band : Morbid
In fact, Metalion told to Dead that Mayhem was looking for a singer.
He sent a tape of the "December Moon" demo, by Morbid, with a letter and a crucified mouse.
Then, Dead came to Oslo and joined the band.
The members had lived in their parents' home, although Dead lived in a variety of places, including the band's rehearsal space, a cabin, ...
But in 1988 the group began renting a deserted house in a forest near Krakstad and began to write songs for their next album : De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas.
Dead brought to Mayhem a new level of grimness, plunging the band into even blacker depths.
With him, the band's concerts became notorious.
He would bury his stage clothes and dig them up again to wear on the night of a concert, he would often cut himself with hunting knives and broken glass.
Additionallythe band often had pig or sheep heads impaled on stakes and planted at the front of their stage.
On 8 April 1991, Dead committed suicide in the Krakstad house.
He was found by Euronymous with slit wrists and a shotgun wound to the head.
Instead of calling the police, Euronymous went to a nearby store and bought a disposable camera to photograph the corpse.
One of these photographs was used as the cover of the bootleg : Dawn Of The Black Hearts.
Euronymous used Dead's suicide to make publicity for Mayhem...
Necrobutcher was affected so much by the death of his friend that he left the band.

IV. 1991 - 1994
The group performed for a short time thereafter with  Stian Johannsen (Occultus), joining the band to begin recording vocal and bass tracks in Mayhem's debut album.
However, this was short-lived; he left the band after receiving a death threat from Euronymous.
Later that year, Euronymous engaged three more session members :
- Varg Vikernes (bass)
- Snorre Ruch (guitar)
- Attila Csihar (vocals)
On 10 August 1993, Vikernes and Snorre travelled from Bergento Euronymous' apartment in Oslo.
Upon their arrival, a confrontation began, which ended when Vikernes fatally stabbed Euronymous.
He was arested within days and sentenced to 21 years in prison.
Snorre was sentenced to 8 years for complicity.
In May 1994, De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas was released and dedicated to Euronymous.

  1. Hi
    I wonder if you can help me. I was looking to know who owns the iconic image of pelle in front of the brick wall in corpse paint in 1989. I have looked everywhere to find out where the original came from and to see if any copies were made but I can't find any information on it. Do you know anything about it?

From The Dark Past...

Tjena alla monsterdiggare!

This blog is dedicated to Pelle Ohlin & Øystein Aarseth.
I started to collect in 1997 and created this blog in 2009/10 (In a different web address at the time).
It is made as a tribute to them for all fans, friends, families, etc...
Also it is made about Morbid and Mayhem from 1984 to nowadays.

--> It is not easy to get some "news"/unseen photos, anecdotes, stories, etc...
Some people are kind enough to share with me what they have, so the least that can I do is to thank and mention them.

If you use these pictures on your blog, personal website, tumblr, facebook, etc, etc.... mention the real owners or the source too, that what is called Respect!
Thank you. <-->
