Deathcrush is an EP by the Norwegian black metal
band Mayhem. It was originally released on 16 August 1987. Though
influential to black metal, its lyrics and sound were largely influenced
by early death metal bands. “Chainsaw Gutsfuck” was voted “Most
Gruesome Lyrics Ever” by Blender in 2006. The Deathcrush EP was
immediately groundbreaking, establishing new standards of brutality, the
songwriting itself is still largely derivative of their influences,
particularly Venom and early Bathory.
Amazing, classic black metal with punk strokes. Back on Black 2017.
