This live album was recorded at the Rainbow Club in Milan, Italy in November 1998. The line-up features original MAYHEM vocalist Maniac, plus current band members Hellhammer on drums, Necrobutcher on bass & Blasphemer on guitar. The show also features a guest appearance by now-current MAYHEM vocalist Attila Csihar on the track 'From the Dark Past'. MAYHEM formed in Oslo, Norway, in 1984 & is infamous as one of the early Scandinavian purveyors of black metal, made even more legendary after the well-documented murder of original MAYHEM guitarist Euronymous in 1993. With a crystal clear sound & the noticeably stunning drum work of Hellhammer (currently also sticksman for DIMMU BORGIR), the band themselves considered this worthy of being labelled an official release, as MAYHEM storm through a strong set full of classics from old releases Deathcrush & De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, to the post-Euronymous compositions as featured on Wolf's Lair Abyss.
