I have some questions?

1. Is this castle a real castle? ANSWERED


2. Where it is located, in case it is? Where can I find real photos? ANSWERED

3. Do you know the story about how MAYHEM came with the idea of that cover?

4. Is the castle of the avantgarde tribute the same castle of the MAYHEM cover, or one simillar?



Thanks in advance

It's a hell of a killer cover, I guess.
And if the mysteries of Satan are held within the walls of that cathedral,
it would be fascinating. From looking at the cover, it would seem Satan
has taken over that cathedral, making it his own.
Anyway, who knows, I've not heard any special stories around why Mayhem
chose that cover.

Euronymous' satanism was inverted catholicism basically, so it's not so wierd at all. I'm sure they thought it to be "a hell of a killer cover" too, though. That's propbably the best explanation you'll get.

No, they are not the same. I live in Trondheim and I have been inside (and obviously been standing outside) the Nidaros Cathedral many, many times. Don't know about the building on the tribute album, but it's not in Norway.

They are most definitely different in my mind. The building on the DMDS was the Nidaros Cathedral, whilst what is used on the tribute is most definitely a castle.

The castle is likely to be this one famous castle from Wallachia built around the time of Vlad Tepes.

- i know this is kind of "off the point", but, i personally think the cover sucks balls. the castle looks cool, but, they shouldve used their other logo & different font for the title. maybe if they did the cover like this... -



- without "EAT SHIT!!!" across it of course, id like it a lot more -

- yeah, if that was the cover & if Dead was on vocals, that release would be a masterpiece -

THAT looks like shit! With Dead on vocals it would have been great, but Attilas vocals are fucking great too.

- nah, i think it looks 666x better than the cover they used -

- as for Attilas vocals, they remind me very much of Dave Mustaine & thats not good [ especially when its black metal ] -

I agree on that strange grafitti font to be replaced but the colors are perfect. Atilla is utter shit on this album. When he's going opera I always have to smile, but that's more an ashamed smile. Ugg&"%&"%"&$!!!
