“De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas” is often considered to be the
most important Black Metal album of all time. The legendary Pytten can
be quoted on saying “it was the next big thing after Grieg”, and we
couldn’t agree more. The album was released on Euronymous label “Deathlike Silence Productions” May 24th 1994, marked as Anti-Mosh 006.
This timeless album shall be honoured with the release of the 25th
Anniversary Box Set, with the help and support by long time Mayhem
friend Finn Håkon Rødland. The Iconic Album has been remastered for
vinyl from the original DAT tapes by Solslottet Studio, with guidances
from Pytten himself and approved by Hellhammer. The cover art and
packaging will for the first time be presented as Hellhammer originally
envisioned it back in 93/94, including also the lyric scroll booklet.
Also included are four additional vinyls
with stunning artwork consisting of two different rehearsal sessions in
Oslo from February and May 1992, taken directly from tapes Euronymous
made, the instrumental rough mix from Grieghallen June 1992, and the
rough mix with vocals from the tape Attila got after the vocal
recordings in April/May 1993.
The Box Set will include a 96 page book with a series of in depth
interviews casting Light and Darkness on the recording process and the
glory days of Mayhem making history in the early 90’s, such as Pytten,
Hellhammer, Attila, Necrobutcher, Nocturno Culto of Darkthrone, Bård
`Faust” Eithun of Emperor, Shagrath of Dimmu Borgir, Dr. Best of
Mysticum, Steinar “Sverd” Johnsen of Mortem/Arcturus, Erik Danielsson of
Watain, Tore Bratseth of Old Funeral, Ivar and Grutle of Enslaved, HBM
Majesty of Mare/Vemod/Dark Sonority, Nergal of Behemoth, Silenoz of
Dimmu Borgir and Jørgen Lid Widing (lyric scrolls). Liner notes by Finn
Håkon Rødland, Metalion, Iver Sandøy of Solslottet studio, and Maniac.
The Book will include the original handwritten lyrics by Dead and
Snorre, plus never before seen photos from the DMDS photo session,
presented here for the very first time. The book will also give detailed
insight into the classic cover art of Nidarosdomen.
