Historically speaking, but I think it is neither sad nor hilarious, if they donít.

I don't know if it was mentioned yet, but there is a rumor they planned on blowing up Nidaros Cathedral to celebrate the release of the record. When Varg was busted, they found 100 kg of explosives which is said to have been intended for the job.

It's considered the most significant church in all of Norway.

So with that, I guess the cover represents an impending doom (as it's shrouded in darkness) upon the church.


That is exactly what I had written about just a few posts ago.

Yes and there are even many "metalheads" who are introduced to metal by bands like Burzum, Dimmu Borgir, new-Mayhem and new-Immortal... These trendy fucks dont know nothing about the roots of metal.

Also, unlike a lot of shit "black metal underground" bands of today, Mayhem were die hard metal fans who were knowledgeable in the underground about killer bands - this gives me even more respect for them. I mean REAL death/black/thrash/heavy metal, not this 'kvlt' bedroom internet shit of today. Euro released the first MERCILESS album for fucks sake.... he was a truly devoted metal fan and this attitude definitely got lost in the 'second wave'!

agreed

For me this is funny when an poor black metal project with no music, riffs or sound is "inspired" by Venom or Mercyful Fate (or at least band members says this). Usually albums of these bands looks really funny in thier collections of other poor black metal projects. I even think more - they dont listein to Venom, they just think should talk about this and keep one copy in collection (or at hard drive).

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


I've heard or read that Inner circle was about to destroy this cathedral with explosive . The explosive police found at Varg Vikernes house .
Also this cover have a dark atmosphere , so it would be a simple but great reason .

That is correct the masterplan was about having it blown.
Here are some pictures i had taken from Nidaros , the inside ones were stoped by a fat old lady calling the cops ( its not allowed to take fotos inside)

DMDS is one of those albums you either love or hate, for me it was a bit dissapointing when if was finally released, of course we all know Dead could have done a much better work on the vocal department, but you can't really compare them side to side, they had very different styles...

...

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



Thanks in advance


The castle there is the Castelul Huniazilor in Transilvania. Vlad Tepes lived here for a very brief time.
