Monstrosity‘s Lee Harrison (drums) comments: “First off, I present to you the master piece of masterpieces in the Monstrosity universe. This album requires a certain justice though and I ask you, as the listener, to properly step up to the task. Don’t play this recording on a cheap portable radio or your tiny ear buds. This album was built to be played loud on a killer system. Do yourself that favor, at least for the first few times you play it. I know it’s so horribly cliché to say ‘Play it Loud’, but I can honestly say this album is made for that. Listen to it multiple times, too. These songs are going to ‘pop’ live, too. Can’t wait to bring these songs to the stage. I’m curious to see the opinions. The response by the fans to the teaser clip we posted was super positive, so I’ll be so glad when the single is released and the years of hard work finally come to fruition. Hope to see you guys on the road soon and blast it!”

Comments guitarist /vocalist Mark Tremonti:

“‘Words Darker Than Their Wings‘ was a song that we never played before ever and its been one of our favorites, especially me and Scott Phillips. That’s been one of our top 3 Alter Bridge songs since we wrote it and its just one of those songs that we have been trying and trying and trying to play live and Myles is always kind of pushing back about it and finally, you know with this orchestra he said this is the perfect time to do it. We did and it was the biggest reaction of both nights.”

Mayhem To Release Dead Era Box Set, “Cursed In Eternity”

Peaceville has announced Cursed In Eternity, a comprehensive limited edition deluxe set covering the influential Dead era of Norwegian legends Mayhem. The set will be available on November 16th, and is available for pre-order here.

Containing six picture disc LPs, 7”, 92 page book, posters, and DVD featuring the never seen before Jessheim and Sarpsborg live shows plus Henhouse rehearsals.

“We are glad to be able to honour the Euronymous and Dead era in this comprehensive box set that Peaceville and Finn Håkon Rødland put together for the band.” – Necrobutcher & Hellhammer

Mayhem, the Norwegian pioneers responsible for invigorating a global scene alongside originators such as Venom, Celtic Frost & Bathory, formed in 1984, and with a long history of tragedy, intrigue and infamy have become truly revered legends of black metal, with a large part of their legacy established in the late 80’s & early 90’s, when guitarist Euronymous and bassist Necrobutcher welcomed Hellhammer on drums and Dead on vocals, to help shape a new era of darkness and Armageddon.

Marking 30 years since this particularly iconic and subsequently ill-fated union, the deluxe Cursed In Eternity set contains a full and expansive collection of work by the band during that period. This includes Mayhem’s legendary 1990 live dates in Norway and short German tour, plus the additions of the Out From The Dark and Henhouse rehearsal sessions.

These six titles are all presented on a special limited picture disc format for this release, with the set also including a 7” single vinyl containing two studio tracks (“Freezing Moon” and “Carnage”); recorded initially for the CBR compilation Projections Of A Stained Mind and here featuring sleeve artwork made at the time by former vocalist, Maniac.

Along with a full 92-page book recalling tales of their legendary shows and inspirational music from both band members and others from the scene, and including letters and previously unseen photographs sourced from personal archives, all in collaboration with the True Mayhem Collection, Cursed In Eternity also presents, for the first time, a DVD containing never-seen-before footage from the entire Jessheim concert, plus front of stage video from the Sarpsborg show, giving a priceless insight into how these shows were witnessed at the time. The DVD is completed by full footage of the Henhouse rehearsals.

As a final bonus inclusion, Cursed In Eternity features posters from the original designs and Zeitz photo from those iconic live shows.

Contents:

– 92-Page Perfect Bound Book

– LP 1 – Henhouse Rehearsals
– LP 2 – Out From The Dark
– LP 3 – Live In Jessheim
– LP 4 – Live In Sarpsborg
– LP 5 – Live In Zeitz

– 7” – Freezing Moon / Carnage (Studio)

– DVD:
– Live In Jessheim
