The touring announcements for the upcoming 2017 year have started to manifest and I’m going to do my best to keep you informed about the most crushing ones of the batch. The winter months of January and February are going to get much, much colder thanks to the True Mayhem who will be trekking here in honor of their Black Metal masterpiece “De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas”. Read the full press release below and then I’ll close up with some more thoughts.
The Press Release:
MAYHEM announce “De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas” North American Tour. MAYHEM, metal’s most controversial band, have announced a new North American tour. The black metal pioneers are set to embark on the “De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas” tour, performing the band’s landmark debut album in full. The tour begins on Jan 20 in Montreal, and travels throughout the US and Canada before concluding on February 19. Support on this tour comes from Season of Mist label-mates INQUISITION and BLACK ANVIL. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.
Regarding the tour, MAYHEM vocalist Attila comments, “The first time I heard from Mayhem was in ’91-’92 when I received a letter from Euronymous. I did not know that letter was gonna change my whole life… They were looking for a new vocalist for their debut record to replace Dead, who had passed away. Of course I said yes to their offer and in 1993 we recorded the album called ‘De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas’ one of the most magical recordings of all time. The music opened some altered dimensions that we were simply not able to handle anymore and it unleashed a complete Chaos, which ended up at burning churches and eventually a murder within the band. It was almost impossible to release that record but finally when it came out under the Sun in ’94, it made a strong impact on the whole Heavy Metal scene… The so-called “2nd Wave of Black Metal” born in the cold and dark underground of Oslo. At the same time Mayhem collapsed and got burned down as well. From those ashes the band had to rise once again, when they reunited Mayhem with some old and new members. But that album was always so strong and so unique that even after my reunion with Mayhem in 2004, we were still not comfortable to present it live as a whole thing. Time passed and the whole band got stronger and more experienced. So now in 2016 suddenly we felt it was the time to play that whole record finally, to release That Beast after more than two decades. So ‘De Mysteriis Dom Sathans’ finally becomes Alive!” Continue reading Mayhem Announces “De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas” North American Tour 2017→

I’m just back from a visit to family down South but you would never notice unless I mentioned it since I kept the postings from the San Diego Comic Con coming at the readership like a machine gun fire. This morning I put it out there to the powers that be that I had interest in a giveaway for the Ne Obliviscaris show at Gramercy Theatre and the interest was mutual so read more about this sure to be a monster of a show.
The Details: I’ve only caught the band Ne Obliviscaris once in concert and they blew my Metal Mind which was why I was eager to bring a few fans into the mix for this one. I think it’s a great thing to see just how broad the spectrum is for our beloved genre. Their sound is both crushing and creative and seeing them headline will be pretty damned cool. Then there is the direct support band Black Crown Initiate to consider. Wow does this band slam you down onto the ground like a sumo wrestler. I’ve actually seen them the most out of all the bands on this bill and think you must be a part of it if you know what is good for you. Leading off the national supporting bands is Starkill who we also enjoy and a local group of positive note in Winter Nights. Read on below on how to participate since you know you want to.
