It was announced back in October that the mighty Mayhem would be returning to North America for a tour beginning in January. The Norwegian black metal legends will be playing their seminal 1994 debut album De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas in full.

Now it has been revealed that a live version of the album will be unleashed in less than two weeks from now. De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Alive is set for a Dec. 15 release. Check out a clip of the track "From the Dark Past" above. You can watch "Life Eternal" below.

The band says, “‘From The Dark Past’ has not been played many times live before, yet is in many ways an archetypical song from the band, containing key elements that are scattered throughout the rest of the album -- blizzard blast beats and eerie atmospherics, all of course adorned by vocalist Attila Csihar’s unique voice within the genre."

They continue, "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas is widely considered one of the most influential black metal albums of all time, and this is the first time in history this classic album from 1994 is performed live in its entirety.”

De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Alive was produced by Csihar and guitarist Teloch. It will be available on CD, LP and DVD. Physical preorders are available at this location, while you can preorder the digital edition via Bandcamp.
