Metal Hammer can exclusively reveal that UK outfit Dragged Into Sunlight will support Mayhem on their upcoming European tour.

It was announced in October last year that Mayhem would go on the road and play their influential 1994 album De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas in full. Now Dragged Into Sunlight have been confirmed as main support on all European dates up until April 8.

Dragged Into Sunlight tell Metal Hammer: “Mayhem have set a benchmark in extreme music for over 20 years.

De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas is widely regarded as a landmark recording which continues to maintain its relevance and impact in a very different context today.

“It is an honour to celebrate 10 years of Dragged Into Sunlight as part of the Mayhem’s long overdue performance of De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas.”

To mark the announcement, Dragged Into Sunlight have released a NSFW video for their track Visceral Repulsion. Viewer discretion is advised as some scenes may cause distress.
