Euronymous killed Dead?

I reviewed the whole story that happened during the making of "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas" album of Mayhem. The plan to burn the Cathedral, which is depicted on the album cover, with the assistance of Varg Vikernes, who killed later on Euronymous, with the excuse that he was going to get tortured to death by him.If all this is correct, then Euronymous had a really sick mind... So in order to make his album famous he had some plans, so his album can be called like a message from Satan or simply an album with history, this might be true since he calls himself a descendant of Satan. He also took a picture of Dead's corpse. With all this info I could only assume that Euronymous actually killed Dead and made it look like a suicide. He was the first person who found Dead anyway. This whole suicide(Dead), church arsons(The Cathedral and some other churches), murders(if he really was planning to kill Varg), right before the release of the CD would add up extra "Dark Energy" and Fame to his upcoming album. Now that seems to me like a Hell of a motive for continuous crimes. Nothing is proven since both Euronymous and Dead are dead, so all we can do is assume... Did Dead really kill himself or was he a victim of Euronymous?

Me and Will have seen that album cover' date=' pretty grim stuff.[/quote'] I have that album, and it is indeed grim. I don't own a ton of bootleg releases, but not only does that one have some good and interesting music on it (which is different from the mostly shitty quality bootlegs out there), it's a piece of black metal history. Not only are Mayhem one of my favorite bands, but it's just something that every black metal fan should own IMO. Dead was a great vocalist, it's just too bad he wasn't able to record more with Morbid and Mayhem before offing himself. Still, we have some great material to remember him by, and with that album cover, he won't soon be forgotten.

Varg is the one who gave Dead the shells for the shotgun. Personally i think Varg was simply jealous of Euronymous and Mayhem in general given their popularity at the time. Euronymous being the self proclaimed Prince of Darkness Varg was jealous of the fact that he was garnishing so much attention from the media that it was hindering his own band Burzum. This caused him to want to get Mayhem out of the way. He then saw an opportunity to get rid of the vocalist(Dead) by having him off himself so he gave Dead the shells he needed to do it hoping he might actually do it. When he did he did not want to stop there so he then planned to kill Euronymous and blame it on the fact that Euronymous did not like him and call it self defense. However this is a theory as I have no proof nor does anyone else but I still refuse to listen to Burzum because of that shithead Varg. He killed a great man that day even though Euronymous was sociopath but thats beside the point.

That's one Hell of a conspiracy. Imagine if Dead were still alive and ended up making dsbm? That would be epic! Neither Varg nor Euronomous would've been a Nobel Peace Prize candidate anytime soon, so I think they were just two ass hole alpha males having a dick swinging contest.

Its quite easy to say your going to kill yourself......

Though when it comes the time to inflict damage to ones body, the body has a greater power over the mind to keep this from taking place

If by slim chance "Dead" was able to muster enough energy to slit a wrist, in my opinion, after this was done he would most likely come to some sense of mind and stopped there....but to continue and cut his other wrist, then his throat, and finally hold a shotgun to is head and overcome the bodies natural defenses, and pull the trigger, well to me its just impossible.

Also knowing what his apparent "best friend" and most important "BAND MEMBER" did immediately following finding "Dead" (Taking Pics and probably having a beer), tells me everything I need to know about this character....... 

If you find what I have expressed difficult to believe,,,,,,take a dull knife and try with all of your might to cut your wrist. You will start to see how difficult this will be to accomplish.

If "Dead' would have just shot himself, I may have been a believer.... 

Taking a look at this situation this way...one may find some "poetic justice" here from the actions taken by "Varg"

There's no way Euronymous killed Dead. Why on earth would he do that? He went to great lengths to get Dead over from Sweden, had huge plans, played great shows. It's just too random and it doesn't make any sense. Then he had a hard time getting his replacement over from Hungary. Plus there is no evidence for it at all, and I'm sure the police would have gone through it pretty closely.

I googled this topic because I started to think the same thing I think a euronymous killed dead

Same here. I mean, I don't think he did, per se... I merely wonder if he did. It's definitely possible. Taking photographs of Dead's fresh corpse and keeping pieces of his skull aren't good signs. Sounds like keeping trophies. But then again I agree with the point that if he did do it, he probably would have bragged about it at some point.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!

    • Full length number 19 from overkill certainly makes a splash in the energy stakes, I mean there's some modern thrash bands that are a good two decades younger than Overkill who can only hope to achieve the levels of spunk that New Jersey's finest produce here.  That in itself is an achievement, for a band of Overkill's stature and reputation to be able to still sound relevant four decades into their career is no mean feat.  Even in the albums weaker moments it never gets redundant and the energy levels remain high.  There's a real sense of a band in a state of some renewed vigour, helped in no small part by the addition of Jason Bittner on drums.  The former Flotsam & Jetsam skinsman is nothing short of superb throughout "The Wings of War" and seems to have squeezed a little extra out of the rest of his peers.

      The album kicks of with a great build to opening track "Last Man Standing" and for the first 4 tracks of the album the Overkill crew stomp, bash and groove their way to a solid level of consistency.  The lead work is of particular note and Blitz sounds as sneery and scathing as ever.  The album is well produced and mixed too with all parts of the thrash machine audible as the five piece hammer away at your skull with the usual blend of chugging riffs and infectious anthems.  


      There are weak moments as mentioned but they are more a victim of how good the strong tracks are.  In it's own right "Distortion" is a solid enough - if not slightly varied a journey from the last offering - but it just doesn't stand up well against a "Bat Shit Crazy" or a "Head of a Pin".  As the album draws to a close you get the increasing impression that the last few tracks are rescued really by some great solos and stomping skin work which is a shame because trimming of a couple of tracks may have made this less obvious.
