Pure Fucking Armageddon

Mayhem Live in Parma, by Marco Giuliano.

The Messe Noire of the fathers of Norwegian black metal consumed at Campus Industry Music in Parma, Italy. A backwards ritual in 3 acts that started with tracks from their latest records, with a remarkable sequence from “Daemon”, in which Hellhammer’s drumming emerged at its best. Lights down, Freezing Moon opens the dance to the masterpiece tracks from “De Mysteriis dom Sathanas”. 4 tracks that pass in a heartbeat and then lights go down again. Last reprise gives a perfect closure to the hell unleashed by the infamous and immortal songs from their “Deathcrush” era. The cursed past of Mayhem helped in shaping the sound and the history of an entire generation and we are enraptured to see their black flame still gloriously burning. Opening act by Mortiis with an eerie epic/ambient tracklist that set the right tone with its martial progression. Pictures by Marco Giuliano.
