Hellhammer (Jan Axel Blomberg): Drums (1988 – 1993; 1994 - )

Mayhem, what a hardworking band. See the list..ánd been on tour in between and on over recent years. Sounding locktight. Thus hail on that. Look at what treasure you can pump through your Hifi systems now. Well than. Cheers!

Mayhem was dangerous band and searching band, example are albums like Chimera or esoteric warfare, but Deamon is safe haven, the most disappointing Mayhem ever

There is no "true" Mayhem. Get over it. They're line-ups have changed drastically over the years and they still manage to generate quality albums. People are clinging to this idea of "true" that never existed in the confines of the band. Accepting impermanence and chaos is the key to enjoying their releases....which is the very definition of Mayhem.

It may not be the "Original" line-up but the records they've squeezed out post the death of Dead/Euronymous were rippers and you can't the deny the influence they've had on modern European and American black metal.

The currnet lineup (post Dead-Euronymous) has nothing to do with this band Mayhem. It would be better to be called something else, and claim success not but showing something they're not.
