The Note4Note – Mayhem: De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas

We’re back! Holy shit!

On the second episode of the Note4Note, Chris and I discuss Mayhem’s first proper studio album, De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas. We explore black metal as a fledgling genre, Chris shares some hot takes regarding the vocals, and I talk way, way too much about the controversial, TOTALLY UNEXPECTED (re: not unexpected, if you’re a metal fan) murder that essentially put Mayhem on the metal map.

You can listen to the episode on Soundcloud, or download it there too!

Show notes:

  • At 30:21 there’s some track bleeding where the audio dropped out. Sorry in advance! We’re still working on our editing.
  • I still maintain that the history lesson is important to how I envisioned this episode, that is in order to gain a better understanding of the band and the music on De Mysteriis, but I COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND if you want to skip ahead to the interesting stuff. That starts at 11:04.
