Mayhem has been a pioneering band in Norwegian black metal since 1984. In it's early years the band was surrounded by controversy for their use of violence and their association to a series of church arsons in the early 90's. The controversy reached its peak in 1993 with the murder of guitarist Øystein Aarseth (Euronymous). Around this time the band released the album De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas which quickly assumed a cult following. Since then the band has gained more mainstream acceptance, members have come and gone, and they picked up a Spellemann award for best metal album in 2007. De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, however, is still regarded as one of their most influential releases, if not the most, and it is this album that will be performed in its entirety at Sentralen this evening.
