Biography

There are at least five artists under this name. Two Bands, a band, a Band and an musician with this Nickname:

#1) Mayhem is a band from Oslo, Norway which was originally formed in 1983, taking strong influence especially from Hellhammer/Celtic Frost, Venom and from earlier Bathory. The name “Mayhem” was taken from the title of the Venom song “Mayhem with Mercy”. Much controversy has surrounded the band regarding various murders, suicides, and other forms of violence. Mayhem have moved through a variety of black metal styles, even going so far as delving into the areas of dark avant-garde industrial and electronica. The group (in its earliest, and most accepted and popular incarnation; 1983-1993) are widely considered to be one of the cornerstone bands in the movement often labelled “the second wave” of black metal. In the years since, their influence has only grown.

The band’s initial line-up consisted of Manheim on drums, Necrobutcher on bass guitar, Euronymous on guitar and Messiah on vocals. However, Messiah departed and was replaced by Maniac on vocals; later, Dead and Hellhammer replaced Maniac and Manheim, respectively, to complete what is regarded by many fans as the group’s classic lineup.

    People can comment whatever they want in the shoutbox, get over it. Personally I think the shoutbox doesn't need a change, it's already interesting. btw: Ordo Ad Chao > Esoteric Warfare > Grand Declaration Of War > De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas >>>>>>>>>>>>> Chimera > Wolf's Lair Abyss > Deathcrush also: Attila >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Maniac > Dead

    I don't whine about it, that's what the other guys do (like you for example). If you want to comment on an album, I think that's why album shoutboxes excist. The main shoutbox can be so much more intressting if it's used to post relevant stuff about the band. Anyway, if you don't agree it's not that I want to upset someone.

    Wtf you guys, how can you all have this stupid discussion about taste.. It's just a waste and pointless. Listen to whatever album you like and write something worth reading.
