    The iconic debut full-length album by the original Princes of Norwegian Darkness, Mayhem. Recorded from '92 to '93, De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, or "Lord Satan's Secret Rites", was the first true release by the group, despite having formed back in 1983 by three fellow Venom fans at an AC/DC concert. The band was formed by Euronymous, bass player Necrobutcher and drummer Manheim, and was meant to be the most extreme musical group the world had ever seen or heard. Following in the footsteps of Venom, Motorhead and Celtic Frost, the group transformed speed metal into a darker, more sinister genre of music, centered around grotesque lyrics, raw sound and infamous acts of violence and radicalism. By 1987, their eagerly-awaited first work, Deathcrush, was finalized and released, selling out nearly instantly in the underground music scene of Scandinavia. The band then adopted ex-Morbid vocalist Dead and pursued a short-lived legacy as the world's most extreme band. After Dead's suicide in 1991, Euronymous began looking for a new vocalist for his upcoming epic, the album that would become De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas. Shortly before its release, Euronymous was murdered by his former friend and bandmate, Varg Vikernes, of Norwegian Black Metal band Burzum, thus bringing an end to the underground Norwegian Black Metal scene, and an end to the "True Mayhem". Though his body was left a corpse, his legacy lives on through his musical work and his ultimate creation, Mayhem.
