Great job, has to be one of the best writeups on Mayhem. A couple of things though:- "Messiah's unhinged performance on the original 1986 mini-album"; that would be Maniac. Messiah does "Witching Hour" on the album (lower register raspy voice), both are on "Pure Fucking Armageddon" and the rest is Maniac.- There are a lot mislabelled bootlegs from this era (actually usually Jessheim, Sarpsborg or one of the German ones) and I believe Gleisdorf is one of them.- On the Leipzig album it is Necrobutcher not Dead ("...audible exasperation. His shouted 'Come on Leipzig!'..."; "...during which Dead exhorts the crowd to join them...") who is shouting to the crowd.
Thanks! Yep, I should have known that about Maniac on 'Deathcrush', Messiah is listed as 'Iron Lungs: session" on the sleeve I believe.Didn't know it was Necrobutcher shouting though! I will revise accordingly :)
I believe the Gleisdorf show is the same as Live In Zeitz. I don't think Mayhem ever went to Austria but they did do a show in Annaberg, Germany a day before Zeitz.
