Reseña de álbum

Mayhem's first official release, the Deathcrush EP is one of those contradictory recordings which arguably vaulted an entire subgenre — black metal — towards the fulfillment of its destiny while seemingly setting back the overall state of heavy metal beyond its prehistoric past. The primary reason being its outlandishly raw, lo-fidelity sound quality, of course, which made even stylistic forefathers Venom (who had coined the "black metal" term a few years earlier under similarly unlikely circumstances, and whose "Witching Hour" Mayhem tears through here), resemble Phil Spector's Wall of Sound, by comparison. In fact, only the earliest efforts by Sweden's Bathory, and late-'80s recordings by Brazilian acts like Vulcano, Sarcófago, and Sepultura, plumbed comparable depths of extremity to lunatic Mayhem thrashers like "Chainsaw Gutsfuck," "Necrolust," "Pure F*****g Armageddon," and the title track. Yet, Deathcrush still found space within its 18, mostly frantic minutes, for a few surprising stylistic asides, like the foreboding marshal percussion of intro "Silvester Anfang" and the lonely keyboard chimes of "(Weird) Manheim," that already hint at black metal's broader aesthetic possibilities. As a result, Deathcrush anticipates the contradictory essence — part simplicity defined, part progressive exploration — of the emerging Norwegian black metal movement, and will therefore strike a primal chord of recognition with all devoted enthusiasts of the genre.

This was the first recording I ever bought from Mayhem. The two odd tracks Silvester Anfang and Manheim (Weird) are just as good as the other tracks, but in different ways. The title track has a really good beginning and a solid middle. Chainsaw hads an intense and catchy chugging riff going throughout almost all the song. Witching hour was a great cover song, I being a rather large Venom fan, appreciate it just as much as I do the original. Very good, albeit short, album, but a great collection nevertheless.


THis is an amazing album and has some of there best songs on it. The production isn great but thats what makes it a true Black Metal album. Every single song brims with evil, heavyness, and brutality. A great album for all Mayhem and Metal fans.


The words in the songs are descriptive (some are more than others) and the vocals are very thrashy and very good. I recommend it.


Fecha de formación: Norway, 1984

Género: Death metal/Black metal

Años de actividad: '80s, '90s, '00s

Formed around 1985 by Necrobutcher and guitarist Euronymous (born Oystein Aarseth), Mayhem was the first black metal band from Norway to make a serious impact in their homeland, which in the early '90s developed a burgeoning underground scene rife with violent, sometimes anti-Christian activity, as evidenced by Mayhem's non-musical history. Drummer Hellhammer, who at one time worked in a mental hospital, is the only remaining member of the band's prime-period lineup. Lead vocalist Dead committed...
