LEAVE YOUR SOUL AT THE DOOR, WHERE YOU’RE HEADED YOU DONT NEED IT ANYWAY

The Masters of Black Metal, Mayhem came into Baltimore tonight to show you how this genre is suppose to be done.

Mayhem is touring playing their first full length album “ De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas” Which was released in 1994. This album which began recording in 1987 but after singer Per Ohlin committed suicide and murder of Guitarist Øystein Aarseth it was delayed.

The stage was set like an eerie cemetery or funeral arrangement. The music started and the fog was filling the stage, and it just kept coming. It was a creepy way to start the show, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. The band came out first and the crowd went nuts, then Singer Attila Csihar came out with his creepy “mask or makeup”(I wasn’t quite sure which it was, but was badass either way) and he put on exactly the kind of show that you expect from the “godfathers” of Black Metal.

 

 

 

During the show, Mayhem had everything that makes the stage show, exactly what you want, they had fog, strobe lights, altars and candles, satanic backdrops, skeletons on stage, wardrobes that creeped you out. And Attila even brought out a skull.

 

Mayhem was amazing, I’ve been listening to them for years, but this was my first time seeing them live, and I wasn’t disappointed at all. The songs were on point, the stage show was killer and the band just kept being creepy and spooky and epic the whole time. It was definitely an experience like none before. I hope that I can see them again soon, because the show was just perfect.
