Mayhem’s Jørn “Necrobutcher” Stubberud releases his personal account of the first ten years of Mayhem



On 6 May 2016, Mayhem bass player and sole remaining original member Jørn “Necrobutcher” Stubberud published ‘Death Archives: Mayhem 1984-94’ via Thurston Moore’s publishing house, Ecstatic Peace Library. The book itself is based on the memories and personal collection of photographs and memorabilia of Stubberud himself.

“In the summer of 2014, on the occasion of the band’s thirtieth anniversary, I was contacted by a journalist and a photographer from the Norwegian magazine NATT & DAG. They wanted to write about Mayhem and asked to join the band on our trip to Switzerland,” explains Stubberud. “I pulled out the photo albums compiled over the first ten years of Mayhem when Øystein [“Euronymous” Aarseth, original Mayhem guitarist] and Pelle [“Dead” Yngve Ohlin, ex-vocalist] were still alive and discussed how we built the band that is still touring today. We saw images from the first photo session and first gig in 1985 and looked over the first photo shoot of our new line-up in 1994.”

About Terrorizer Magazine

This month’s cover stars are 25 years old this year and have just released their tenth album, so for Katatonia it’s a double whammy. But with age comes clarity and knowledge and as you’ll have heard for yourselves, the band’s new release ‘The Fall Of Hearts’ is such a brilliant piece of melancholic metal. Perhaps not the most obvious of coverstars, it’s safe to say that Katatonia deserve the honour through consistently delivering awesome albums and going the distance when others have fallen by the wayside. I know you’ll enjoy José’s story as much as I did reading it for the first time. This issue is packed, as always, with a cross-section of brutality and extremity and was brought to you as certain staff members recover from two of the best festivals in the calendar – namely Roadburn and Ritual Festival. You can read about both in this ‘ere issue too.
