Live in Leipzig is a live album by the Norwegian black metal band Mayhem. It was recorded at the Eiskeller club in Leipzig, Germany on November 26, 1990. However, the album was not released until 1993. The songs performed during the concert were from Deathcrush and the yet-to-be-recorded De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas. It is one of the few official albums to feature Dead as a vocalist.
The album is widely regarded as the first black metal record. The show featured Dead slitting his arms and spraying blood into the audience, as well as several graphic props such as severed pig heads impaled on wooden spikes, and pieces of rotting meat which were tossed into the audience.
* Dead (Per Yngve Ohlin) - vocals
