Mayhem Mediolanum Capta Est on 180g 2LP
Mayhem formed in Oslo, Norway, in 1984 and are infamous as one of the early Scandinavian purveyors of black metal, made even more legendary after the well-documented murder of original guitarist Euronymous in 1993. Mediolanum Capta Est is a live album recorded at a performance at the Rainbow Club in Milan, Italy in November 1998.
The line-up features original Mayhem vocalist Maniac, plus Hellhammer on drums, Necrobutcher on bass and Blasphemer on guitar. The show also features a guest appearance by now-current Mayhem vocalist Attila Csihar on the track "From the Dark Past." Mayhem storm through a strong set full of classics from old releases Deathcrush and De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, to the post-Euronymous compositions as featured on Wolf's Lair Abyss.
With a crystal clear sound and the noticeably stunning drum work of Hellhammer, the band themselves considered Mediolanum Capta Est worthy of being labeled an official release. Expect nothing but dark and chaotic black metal carnage. This double LP edition of Mediolanum Capta Est is presented on gatefold 180 gram double vinyl.
