Mayhem will perform their debut album De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas in full on a widespread European tour next year.
The shows will mark the first time the record – widely regarded as one of the most influential black metal albums of all time – has been performed in its entirety across Europe.
The 18-date tour kicks off in Sweden on March 25 and includes three UK dates and a show in Dublin.
Mayhem’s controversial past includes the tragic murder of founding guitarist Oystein ‘Euronymous’ Aarseth, who was fatally stabbed by then bandmate Varg Vikernes.
Singer Attila Csihar says: “Time passed and the whole band got stronger and more experienced. So now suddenly we felt it was the time to play that whole record finally, to release that beast after more than two decades.
“So De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas finally becomes alive!”
