mayhem MAYHEM announce "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas" North American Tour
MAYHEM, metal's most controversial band, have announced a new North American tour. The black metal pioneers are set to embark on the "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas" tour, performing the band's landmark debut album in full. The tour begins on Jan 20 in Montreal, and travels throughout the US and Canada before concluding on February 19. Support on this tour comes from Season of Mist label-mates INQUISITION and BLACK ANVIL. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.

Regarding the tour, MAYHEM vocalist Attila comments, "The first time I heard from Mayhem was in '91-'92 when I received a letter from Euronymous. I did not know that letter was gonna change my whole life... They were looking for a new vocalist for their debut record to replace Dead, who had passed away. Of course I said yes to their offer and in 1993 we recorded the album called 'De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas' one of the most magical recordings of all time. The music opened some altered dimensions that we were simply not able to handle anymore and it unleashed a complete Chaos, which ended up at burning churches and eventually a murder within the band. It was almost impossible to release that record but finally when it came out under the Sun in '94, it made a strong impact on the whole Heavy Metal scene... The so-called "2nd Wave of Black Metal" born in the cold and dark underground of Oslo. At the same time Mayhem collapsed and got burned down as well. From those ashes the band had to rise once again, when they reunited Mayhem with some old and new members. But that album was always so strong and so unique that even after my reunion with Mayhem in 2004, we were still not comfortable to present it live as a whole thing. Time passed and the whole band got stronger and more experienced. So now in 2016 suddenly we felt it was the time to play that whole record finally, to release That Beast after more than two decades. So 'De Mysteriis Dom Sathans' finally becomes Alive!"

MAYHEM previously released critically-acclaimed new album, 'Esoteric Warfare'. 'Esoteric Warfare' has been called "an adventurous and energetic record built on stylistic explorations and enthusiastic shifts" (Pitchfork), "a magnificent black metal album" (Metal Injection), and "a fantastic display of progressive black metal" (Sputnik Music), and is streaming here. 'Esoteric Warfare' is available as a CD, Limited Edition box set, and various Lp formats here. The cover and track list can be found below.
