Best Mayhem Albums

Best studio albums released by Norwegian Black Metal band Mayhem.

The Top Ten

1 De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas

Undoubtedly the best by Mayhem. The murderer (Varg Vikernes) and the victim (Euronymous) played together. Dead committed suicide. A satanic circle was established and a number of churches were burnt down to ashes.

This was the most controversial Metal album ever. - Nord666

Clearly their best studio album! I prefer dead on vocals, but I must admit that Attila interpreted the lyrics for Life Eternal (one of my favourite mayhem tracks) extremely well. - metalfan1999

Attila Csihar made this album into so much more in my opinion. His vocals are unique. I love funeral fog, freezing moon are awesome.

Euronymous' one of the best solos is included in this album. Great musicianship and awesome production. - Nord666

Brutal to the core, one of the albums that kicked off the black metal scene in Norway.

This one is the best. It's so darkly fascinating.

I like just a very few of really extreme metal, and this is one of them. Raw, energetic and Dead is on vocals. Simply awesome! Too bad Dead was depression through his life and he killed himself too soon, he's death is one of the most tragic in the music history. - somekindofaguy

Raw, awesome, best live album! Dead performed on the song deathcrush better live than maniac! - metalfan1999

Dead and Euronymous together!
This album is awesome!

This would have been my second choice

7 Chimera Chimera
8 Esoteric Warfare Esoteric Warfare

Wow. I'm really impressed they pulled this off. Really varied and interesting. Sort of maintains the vibe of 'Ordo Ad Chao' but it isn't musically a slop fest like OAC was. Great.

9 Mediolanum Capta Est Mediolanum Capta Est
10 Dawn of the Black Hearts Dawn of the Black Hearts

Let's be real: Without the most famous black metal cover, nobody would even know this album

The Contenders

11 Out from the Dark Out from the Dark

This album deserves more respect! These rehearsal recordings have a fairly good production quality compared to the other recordings with dead, except of course the two studio tracks. - metalfan1999

Sick album dead is great. This is the mayhem line up everyone loves and this is the studio album every fan of mayhem should get especially if you love dead as the vocalist.
