So Mayhem is touring across Europe with Dragged Into Sunlight and The Ominous Circle, playing the legendary album "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas " in its entirety. I will attend to the concert this Wednesday and I curious to see what you guys think about Mayhem as a live band. I have read some very negative comments alongisde a few positive ones. So, what can I expect? someone has seen them on this tour?

I have seen Mayhem four times in the last three years - twice performing DMDS.

I think Mayhem performs better when playing DMDS than when playing a mixed setlist - the material is stronger and more cohesive, and the atmosphere is better. Atilla also seems less "sloppy," for lack of a better word. I'd personally recommend them.

Do not expect any songs beyond what was on DMDS - they're not going to play anything else.

Got my tix. Fucking stoked. Never seen Mayhem, but DMDS is one of my favorite things in life. Immolation and Black Anvil are playing too :hyper:

Thanks for the info! sadly this means the concert will last only 45-47 minutes, which is way too short but I hope it is worth of it. In fact I only like DMDS and Chimera so I was not precisely stoked to listen to songs from the last albums.

They come with The Ominous Circle(pretty good) and Dragged into Light. Let´s see if it is a good concert!

Indeed! first band sounds pretty cool, the second is boring though.

I've seen then in Belgium at 6oct. Second time I saw Mayhem and I must say I enjoyed it very much.
Musically it was very good. Vocals were right on the spot and the ambience was perfect.
It was in a small venue so maybe that adds to the atmosphere too.
