Pelle Ohlin

Pelle Ohlin
16 January 1969 - 8 April 1991 - R.I.P.
This page is dedicated to Pelle Ohlin (or Per Yngve Ohlin) Morbid and Mayhem.
This page is made as a tribute.

Pelle Ohlin/Per Yngve Ohlin was born a cold winter day of January 16th of 1969 in Västerhaninge (Sweden)
 Son of Anita and Lars Ohlin, he was the eldest child of three children including a sister (Anna),  a brother (Anders), and a half-brother (Daniel).
Pelle was an unpredictable and perseverant child in all what he did.
He was fascinated by war, horror, comics and had a particular humor.
He had a rough childhood especially when the family split-up.
Also, he was not understood with other children, they didn't understand who he was and were easier to reject or even to attack him.
This was the reason of his famous "near-death experience", it occurred in the Autumn 1982 when Pelle was beating by a gang at school.
He changed school after this and met friends who shared his interest in music.
Music, horror interest and fascination for the morbid going deeper and deeper and decided to form a band.
After this, you know the story :
Ohlin metal
- Armageddon
- Scapegoat
- Morbid
- Mayhem.
On 8 April 1991 he committed suicide.
He was buried at Österhaninge Begravningsplats in Stockholm.

-> Due to respect for the family and friends of Per, I have decided not to post the picture of  "Dawn of the black hearts".
 Don't share that picture please.<-

Ok, before all, thx very much to M.E. Idegran!
Here we have a Morbid tape - "December moon" and a "Ohlin Metal" tape.
Ohlin Metal was the first "band" of Pelle before Morbid and Mayhem.
The owner bought it from one of his friend, which he got it from Daniel Ohlin.
According to the owner, on the tape there is Pelle talking in his room when he was young with a friend and also alone.
He talks about starting his band, screams, joking about foods and monsters, talks about breakfast and a war between humans and vampires.
He also says "De mysteriis Dom Satanas" and "Tjena alla monsterdiggare" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCrL2gRHlZg) many times.
Thx a lot!

 Pelle to Metalion :
"This is a church in Transylvania, which i drew from a photo (rather smaller by the way), and we've got a sharp copy machine.
And PS : Mayhemic slaughter and black power  (Poland) is perhaps turned in a crowd, and it may happen that we print the newspaper then. And thanks for the finnish postcard.

Pelle's suicide note : 
Excuse all the blood, but I have slit my wrists and neck.
It was the intention that I would die in the woods so that it would take a few days before I was possibly found.
I belong in the woods and have always done so.
No one will understand the reason for this anyway.
To give some semblance of an explanation I'm not a human, this is just a dream and soon I will awake.
It was too cold and the blood was coagulating all the time, plus my new knife is too dull.
If I don't succeed dying to the knife I will blow all the shit out of my skull.
Yet I do not know.
I left all my lyrics by "let the good times roll" - plus the rest of my money.
Whoever finds it gets the fucking thing.
As a last salution may I present "Life Eternal".
Do whatever you want with the fucking thing. / Pelle

I didn't come up with this now, but seventeen years ago.

  1. About the pictures showing the lyrics:
    The 2nd Life Eternal, the Cursed in Eternity & the De Mysteriis sheet was probably used by Csihar Attila, as they have Hungarian words on it, mostly about the tempo and speed of the vocals.

  2. You have wrong info there. Pelle's fathers' name's not Michael, its Lars. And Johan is not his halfbrother, he's the eldest son of Pelles stepmother.

    1. Thank you!
      Yes it is possible there are still some mistakes.
      However, "Lars" is not mentioned, it is written "Mamma och Pappa - Mikael, Lisa" and if I remember well it was written in a book.

      Maybe you can help me and tell me more, here my e-mail :

  4. I have tried to write this letter many times and given up. Still I need to ask a question. Does anyone happen to have any of his old letters? Or even remember them? The letters I am talking about would have been written to celebrity fan clubs. The first half of the letter would appear as normal and happy fan mail and lull the reader into and false sense of flattery... but the second half of the letter would suddenly take a dark and terrible turn... and might end with Pelle explaining in great detail how he was going rip their asshole through their nostrils with a set of fishhooks chained to a cannon ball. Stuff like that. There was probably a lot of them. The problem is he likely sent all the originals.

    The next thing I want to ask; does anyone know what his "suicide" note means? I think I probably figured out most of it. I should probably mention that he left a sword in the letter. Unfortunately I spent all the cash on packing peanuts and ping pong balls... I am not so good with spending money.
    'Slain' (Your friend Pelle) is my sworn brother. He is actually a really good guy... one of the best. The letter and his lyrics points to something larger. It has to do with gematria and the Book of Revelation.

    I am also happy to see that there no suicide picture on this site. "Set of black hearts!" -its time to retire that picture. Also regarding the picture: "And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified." -Revelation 11:8

    Please tell his family that he loves them and someday everything will make sense.

    Yours true;

  7. "Materialized in stone" is a song in Marduk album "Opus Nocturne"
    Was it written by Pelle or what. I mean why is it in Mayhem's listing?

    1. "Materialized In Stone was originally the title for "From the dark Past".
      Pelle changed it before his death.
      Also he wrote the lyrics of "Burn My Coffin".

      And the intro of "Summon The Darkness" from "Heaven Shall Burn...." by Marduk was composed by Euronymous.

  8. This site is beautifully done. I commend you for also respecting the family's wish and not posting the suicide photo. Those photos of Pelle and Anders are so wonderful to see. You can tell Anders adored his brother and wanted to be like him. It was also great to see all the candid photos of him playing around and having fun. It humanizes him and provides a glimpse of his true personality.

    Pelle was so incredibly talented in so many ways!! Thank you for this collection of his work! I've never seen so much of his art in one place.

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. <-->
