Review

Up until the release of this EP, Norwegian black metal was largely unknown. The scene at the time was very much death metal and many of its most famous bands started out as death metal bands, including not only Mayhem, but Darkthrone and Old Funeral. Mayhem's Deathcrush, while still very much influenced by death metal, ushered in this new sound that would come to be fully fleshed out five years later with the release of Darkthrone's A Blaze in the Northern Sky LP. - 5/5
