MAYHEM: Video Interview With ATTILA CSIHAR

MetalChroniques.fr conducted an interview with vocalist Attila Csihar of Norwegian/Hungarian black metallers MAYHEM at this year's Hellfest, which was held June 17-19, 2011 in Clisson, France. You can now watch the chat below.

According to Terrorizer magazine, MAYHEM revealed that the band smuggled in real human remains to use as part of its stage show at Hellfest.

"They were all human remains skulls and bones on the stage of MAYHEM's 'Liberation By Evil' performance at Hellfest," stated Attila Csihar. "It was [done] for spiritual reasons, not for sensation. To stand and sing from the 'Altar Of Death' in front of 8,000 people at Hellfest was extreme and important both artistically and personally that feeling is just indescribable." He added, "I am not sure if it's the best idea to say officially that we used real human bones on our performance. However, it is the simple truth. We are MAYHEM and I am Attila, I always say the truth, nothing more and nothing less. I would like to thank our people and Hellfest for the help to make this great action happen, and also to our fans for the eternal support!"

Fan-filmed video footage of MAYHEM's June 17, 2011 performance at Hellfest can be seen below.
