MAYHEM To Release 'De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Alive'

Norwegian black metal icons MAYHEM are celebrating the release of their 1994 landmark "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas" full-length with tours across the globe. This coming January, the band will march their way across North America performing the record in its monumental entirety.

In conjunction with their many live appearances, MAYHEM will also release "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Alive" on December 15. The album was captured live in Norrköping, Sweden last year during the band's headlining set at the Black Christmass Festival. The show marked MAYHEM's first time ever playing "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas" in full.

A press release states about the first single, "From The Dark Past": "'From The Dark Past' has not been played many times live before, yet is in many ways an archetypical song from the band, containing key elements that are scattered throughout the rest of the album — blizzard blast beats and eerie atmospherics, all, of course, adorned by vocalist Attila Csihar's unique voice within the genre. 'De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas' is widely considered one of the most influential black metal albums of all time, and this is the first time in history this classic album from 1994 is performed live in its entirety."
