5.0 out of 5 stars Black Metal Perfection? 5 Jan 2006
By Scoulls
Format:Audio CD
This album is an absolutely brilliant piece of misanthropic majesty. Each musician has given blinding performances from Euronymous' excellent riffing and lead work to Hellhammer's punishing barrage. Special mention must go to Attilla Csihar for his performance because his voice is so unique and spooky and lifts this album out of the ordinary. Some people complain of his vocals saying that they sound silly and to be perfectly honest they do, but they add to the all important atmosphere of the record.
The music itself is chilling and dark and the production job makes good use of this by being deliberately crude (you can actually hear all the instruments perfectly), as with many great black metal records. This will put off many fans of cleaner sounding productions but then this record is not really for them. For truly great black metal with pristine production they should try Emperor's later albums. This is certainly a 'true' black metal record then but in the best sense in that the music is uncompromising and brutal yet innovative within the genre's constraints and not unimaginative like many bands these days calling themselves 'true' black metal.
Stand out tracks are Funeral Fog, Freezing Moon (with a nice breakdown that makes your hair stand on end), Pagan Fears and the title track. This rates as one of my all time favourite black metal albums and anyone interested in this type of music would do well to pick this up (along with Darkthrone's 'Under A Funeral Moon', Emperor's 'In The Nightside Eclipse' and Immortal's 'Pure Holocaust' to name but three).

5.0 out of 5 stars damn good stuff 23 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
i only bought this album recently but i think its safe to say that Mayhem is one of the best bands of its kind. Every track on this cd is just great and it is definitely very black metal, along with the unusual vocals. i dont know if this is just my cd player, but the vocals could perhaps be a little louder than they are as in some parts theyre difficult to make out. i have absoutely no negative comments about this album . the only thing i could say is that the font in which the lyrics are typed makes the y's look like p's, but if thats the only pathetic complaint i can make then they must be doing something right. overall, buy it.

The title of the album is a latin phrase that means "About the mysteries of Lord Satan". This is what you need to expect when listening to this crude and threatening record! The album was released after the death of Mayhem's guitarist, Euronymous (Greek for Prince of Darkness", killed by the bass player, Count Grishnackh,whose contribution on this album was dubbed over. Mayhem were the founders of black metal as we know it today and this was supposed to be the definitive statement on the ferocity and darkness enveloping the new Norwegian scene.
The first track is Funeral Fog with haunting vocals by Attila, now singer with Aborym, whose vocal style is very dark and original; actually he sounds like a wounded madman, spewing rage and depravity. The rest of the tracks also are very impressive, conjuring up a very dark atmosphere that sucks you right in. Hellhammer's drums also are very impressive, thundering away together with the bass. The only negative note can be made about the production on this album, even though its lo-fi, I suspect, 4-track recording in itself helps with the atmosphere of a pagan rite. A great, great album and a must-buy for any black metal fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mayhem 4 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas is an absolute classic.You can tell the production is fairly feeble but that adds to the mysteriously dark feel it already has.Atilla's vocals really are quite unique.He doesnt scream high pitched like Maniac (current vocalist) and many other black metal 'singers', he sounds a lot more evil.The guitar riffs are original and gripping.Hellhammer's drumming is fast, accurate and very powerful, with the double bass drums and toms combining to give a great rumbling effect.
Mayhem, along with Emperor and Immortal and countless other Norweigan bands, kick started the new wave of black metal at the beginning of the 90's.Roughly 10 years after its release, De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas is still considered Mayhem's best work.
All the songs are superb so it is unrealistic to pick out the outstanding ones.Buy this, and be overwhelmed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The epitome of black metal.
The only thing one can say about this record is simply: "the best black metal album ever recorded." Nothing more ,nothing less.
