A savage set of black metal classics from the Norwegian legends captured in 1998. Now on Peaceville, presented on double 180gm black vinyl. Mayhem formed in Oslo, Norway, in 1984 & are infamous as one of the early Scandinavian purveyors of black metal, made even more legendary after the well-documented murder of original Mayhem guitarist Euronymous in 1993. This live album was 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 & Blasphemer on guitar. The show also features a guest appearance by now-current Mayhem vocalist Attila Csihar on the track 'From the Dark Past'. With a crystal clear sound & the noticeably stunning drum work of Hellhammer, the band themselves considered this worthy of being labelled an official release, as Mayhem storm through a strong set full of classics from old releases 'Deathcrush' & 'De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas', to the post-Euronymous compositions as featured on 'Wolf's Lair Abyss'. Expect nothing but dark & chaotic black metal carnage. This double LP edition of 'Mediolanum Capta Est' is presented on 180gm heavyweight black vinyl with gatefold sleeve.
