No. 16: Mayhem, ‘De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas’ – Best Debut Metal Albums

Mayhem, 'De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas'
Deathlike Silence

Mayhem‘s ‘De Mysteriis Dom Sanathas’ may be the most sonically terrifying black metal record ever released.

Unfortunately, vocalist Per ‘Dead’ Ohlin committed suicide before he was able to enter the studio for ‘De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas,’ but his lyrical work lives on in the black metal masterwork.

Never has a more iconic group of black metal musicians shared a studio space. Guitarist Euronymous and bassist Varg Vikernes would both lend their talents to the album (Varg later murdered Euronymous), as did legendary drummer Hellhamer and current Mayhem vocalist Attila Csihar.
