Product Description

This classic Mayhem re-issue includes a performance from the now-legendary Leipzig show in 1990, featuring the seminal Mayhem line-up of Hellhammer, Necrobutcher, Euronymous & Dead. This is one of very few releases to feature this line-up - vocalist Dead committed suicide the year after the show, and guitarist Euronymous was murdered in 1993. Contains live renditions of tracks from the Deathcrush release (1987) such as Necrolust & the title track, and 1994s iconic album, De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, with songs including Funeral Fog & the ultimate black metal classic, The Freezing Moon.

How could anyone get excited about a dreadfully recorded "concert" by a nascent Norwegian black metal band in front of a half-hearted audience in an apparently half-empty venue? I'm sure the event was recorded on a very bad cassette deck connected into the mixing desk (if you've ever heard such recordings, you'll know what I mean). The cassette was probably swiped from an old answering machine or Dictaphone. The balance is all over the place, the tape "drops out" in several places and the bass guitar, while obviously present in the mix, lacks any bottom end to the tone. The drummer, later to become one of the finest in all metal, is clearly on a steep learning curve, trying to keep the double bass drum beats driving together. All in all, a total disaster, really.
Yet “Leipzig” is a not only a unique piece of black metal history as the only full album featuring the classic Mayhem lineup with the since-deceased Euronymous and Dead, it is also sublimely listenable. Like foul-tasting medicine, you can feel it doing you good. Mayhem’s early repertoire is almost endlessly repeated on re-issues and live recordings but these here are, most Mayhem fans will agree, the essential versions of the songs. Dead’s asphyxiated introduction and regurgitated performance of “Freezing Moon” are worth the price of entry alone. At around 30 minutes in length, the album is long enough to do your head serious damage but not kill you, and short enough to give you time to consider spinning it again.
The performances throughout are red raw and visceral, making for a blistering listening experience. Incidental events on the album also contribute to its iconic status. At one point, Dead incites the lackluster audience, asking “Are you dead?

Mayhem are a band probably as well known for the controversy surrounding them as much as their music. Besides this Mayhem are one of the most crucial bands in the black metal genre. This is the only album featuring the classic Mayhem line-up (Dead-vocals, Euronymous-guitar, Necrobutcher-bass, Hellhammer-drums). This album showcases the brutality of Mayhem's songs ('Carnage') and the eerie sounding nature of their music ('The Freezing Moon') in a live setting and contains some of their finest works. Check out 'The Freezing Moon', 'Funeral Fog' and 'Pagan Fears'. Dead's vocals truely shine on 'Carnage' and 'Necrolust'. The vocals are of the evil black metal style you expect of a cult band like Mayhem. The guitar work isn't as black as on De Mysteriis Dom Santhanas but the Euronymous ultra-chaotic solo is present throughout and the percussion by Hellhammer is some of the finest early black metal drumming ever. As this is a live album you get the typical black metal stage banter between songs but it all fits. The only problems with this album is that the drums sound like they were recorded in a wind tunnel and that 'Deathcrush' (although a good song) isn't performed very well. Besides that this is one of the few live albums worth buying. Anyway you can counter the weak drum recording by playing this album at full blast (Your neighbours will hate you but its worth it)

As is pretty widely known amongst fans of the genre, this is the only Mayhem release available (apart from the infamous 'Dawn Of The Black Hearts' bootleg) that features the classic line-up of Euronymous/Hellhammer/Necrobutcher/Dead. Just a few short months after this live show was recorded, Dead took his own life and Mayhem had Attila Csihar step in on vocals for the legendary De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas album. Attila's singing isn't really up to much to be honest, and anyway, Dead was the true voice of Mayhem, and this excellent live recording is the best chance to hear it. Featuring all the standards which Csihar went on to perform with such a lack of charisma or effort in the studio such as Funeral Fog and Freezing Moon, this is how they were meant to sound. All the elements are in place for a classic night of Black Metal; Dead barking out the twisted lyrics, Euronymous banging out his paint-stripping riffs, Hellhammer proving why he is to this very day one of the very finest drummers in extreme metal. If you are a fan of extreme metal, you should buy this without delay, it's a piece of Black Metal history.
