MAYHEM - Mediolanum Capta Est 2LP
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.
The grammatically incorrect Latin title of the album supposedly means Milan has been captured.
This double LP edition of "Mediolanum Capta Est" is presented on 180gm heavyweight black vinyl with gatefold sleeve. PEACEVILLE RECORDS 2014
