It's a good thing that when I was convinced to try Mayhem out for myself, I started with De Mysteriis. If I started with this, I would just as quickly wrote them off and, retroactively, all demos off. Thankfully, I didn't. This demo is of the recording quality of any album by a band like Ildjarn. However, unlike Ildjarn, there's actually variation with the riffs and Mayhem actually managed to progress and improve their sound for the better while still managing to maintain the rawness and ferocity they were, and still are, known for to this day.
Unless you've got a huge boner for history and are curious to discover an important piece of black metal history, avoid this thing. These four recordings show the band's raw early sound, one of their most controversial shows with Dead, their first full-length, and Pure (Clorinated) - Endless Shame - Pure (CD) final studio recordings with Dead, respectively. Here, we see some songs that would eventually be redone in a live setting or demoed studio tracks.
Unfortunately, this demo does NOT do Mayhem any justice whatsoever in establishing them as one of the driving forces behind the Norwegian black metal movement. This sucks, bad. I am well aware that production in black metal at the time well, mainly in the early s was essentially supposed to be raw and lo-fi. Even bands such as Hellhammer and Bathory that were already releasing black metal records around this time had far better production in terms of the music actually being listenable.
It's raw but sounds good for the actual music. Such is not the case here. The guitars sound completely messy and seem to lack rhythm or any type of musical coherence because of this. I know Euronymous was a great guitarist, regardless of him being a decent human being or not. I feel that even he was cheated on this demo due to the production. The two songs from this demo that were not reworked in some fashion are "Ghoul" and "Voice of a Tortured Skull", the latter being a somewhat interesting instrumental intro that still manages to sound like complete butt.
It could have sounded far better than it does here. Speaking on behalf of "Ghoul", I know this song is actually very good. Carpathian Forest did a cover of this song for their "Morbid Fascination of Death" album and managed to make it sound absolutely amazing. It's very sad when another band can make your song sound better than you. While I have listened to this entire demo, it was not something I could Pure (Clorinated) - Endless Shame - Pure (CD) in one setting.
It is so horrendous, I had to split up my listening into intervals and go from there. There are apparently vocals here that are rumored to be handled by both Euronymous and Necrobutcher, Euronymous alone, OR Necrobutcher alone.
Sources tend to vary on this topic. They are completely incoherent and detract greatly from anything else that is going on here. There are no redeeming qualities in terms of vocals, or as Pure (Clorinated) - Endless Shame - Pure (CD) noticed, any of the other instruments.
Such was the case with the classic "Deathcrush" EP, Manheim handled drum duties here. Hellhammer was not yet in the picture. I would say Manheim is a fairly competent drummer, at least on that EP. Here, his timing seems to be very off and the drums are played very sloppily. It's kind of hard to really tell most times, though, because the music lacks coherence most of the time as it is.
The bass seems to be a bit prominent here which usually, I'd enjoy quite a bit. Necrobutcher is a very competent bassist and he's made himself known throughout Mayhem's career. Unfortunately, while you can hear the bass a bit and it takes over occasionally, it is very distorted and messy. Much like every other instrument here. Really, after listening to this demo, and hardly being able to even do so, I can say there really is no value whatsoever here.
Sure, it may be the first overall release "Deathcrush" being the first proper by any band in the Norwegian black metal scene, but it is not essential whatsoever and fails to bring any musical value to the table. I thought maybe when the instrumental rehearsal version of "Ghoul" came on during the demo's latter half, thing would look up. Unfortunately, these instrumental rehearsals are still far too messy and incoherent. They remain to be the better side of the demo but still suck ass and hold little to no listening value.
Seriously, just avoid this. I am aware it was Mayhem's first release and maybe holds historical value of some sort, but that doesn't matter to me if the music sucks. People generally fall into one of two rival nations with this demo.
One camp thinks PFA is "kvlt as svit" and love it, lo-fi quality and all. The other camp hates the thing. Personally, I think the album is more outdated than straight up bad and still has enough merit for any Mayhem fan who hasn't heard it to go and track a bootleg down - or the real thing if you have the money to waste. To address the first thing everyone notices when they throw the thing in, this album sounds like you've stuffed your speakers with cotton wool.
This both helps and hinders the demo in varying ways. The better sections are haunting. The intro for example is really helped out by the production and other tracks have weaved it into their atmosphere.
At other times, it just sounds like no one knew what they were doing, which was probably the case in most places. That turns a lot of people off, but as a lover of bad production, I find myself strangely drawn to it. Even at it's worst, the demo never gets as bad as the Burzum demos do and that's always a plus. The "Fuck" side is what you'd expect, E. If you've dropped "Deathcrush" into your toilet before, you know how this side sounds.
The real standout is the title track "Pure Fucking Armageddon". It's messy, loud start is only overshadowed by Euronymous great riff work. It's a track that's stayed relevant in Mayhem's discography for over 30 years. In fact, most of the songs on this demo are really well written, they may lack the sorrow and cold harshness the band would pick up with later releases but tracks like "Carnage" have a fittingly violent B-movie feel to them that fits the satanic thrash metal approach of the demo.
Oddly enough, the excellence of the song writing creates a little bit of a problem I'll talk about later. I'd say I like the "Off" side a little more. The tracks have more energy to them, there's no vocals and, weirdly enough, the production and mixing is better.
There isn't a whole lot to say on it, it's just Mayhem getting ready and sounding great. If you just want to hear what a pre-Dead Mayhem sound like and want to headbang a little to some killer riffs, I'd skip the fuck and go straight to off.
Another highlight is the individual performances. When he isn't trying to swallow the microphone, Euronymous is at his peak with one of the best guitar tones he's ever had. When you can hear him, Necrobutcher is also on the ball. He didn't blow me away like he did on say, "Live in Leipzig", but he works off Euronymous really well and certainly gives his two cent to the wall of noise.
Manheim is a drummer I've never thought was all that good. I could rant about the guy all Pure (Clorinated) - Endless Shame - Pure (CD) but here he's actually pretty good. Unlike on other releases, he can keep a basic rhythm and his kick is nice and meaty.
The vocals are a different story however. To put it in the bluntest way possible, they suck. They're just an incomprehensible afterthought that drag everything down a notch. Mixed in with these classics, PFA has a big stinker. I presume that Manheim found a killer tape of some African drums and decided to throw forcefully inject them in there for whatever reason. If all I can think about while listening to your Norwegian black metal song about a flesh-eating creature of the night is the sunny plains of Kenya, you failed as a musician.
The achilles heel of "Pure Fucking Armageddon" though isn't a bad track or it's muffled recording quality, it's that these songs were so great the band have recorded WAY better versions of them on other albums.
Even "Ghoul" has a handful of re-recordings, all of which are tighter than the one featured here. That's this album's biggest problem, the band outgrew this demo and no matter how much I like most of these tracks, there are way better versions out there of them.
To finish, this demo is alright. If you already like Mayhem and want to see where they came from, you'll enjoy it as a work of it's time. If you're just getting into black metal, I'd recommend staying away till you've heard the rest of Mayhem's "Euro-days". I love Mayhem, I really do. As far as second wave black metal goes, they are possibly the only band that has done no wrong.
De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas was my first black metal album, forever ensnaring me into the darkened musical caverns from which it came. However, this is just crap. This is a release which is absolutely pointless today, and would have served little purpose back in It may have heralded the beginning of metal's most infamous of all regional scenes, and ushered in a new wave of black metal, but even then this was supplanted completely within a year.
I think this is supposed to be some form of black metal, or indeed music? I really can't tell, because the production is fucking abysmal, even by the standards of a late 80's second wave demo. Everything is smothered in distortion, resulting in a ludicrously loud crackling every time some sort of noise is made. In addition, the mix is completely off, to the point where only the drums are kind of audible, while the guitars and vocals are drowned out completely.
Even worse is that the whole thing is very quiet, meaning hearing anything is a challenge unless the sound is turned up very high. If I have to turn up my sound to that extent to hear some music I can't really discern too much from the auditory fits of nonsense that plague this, performance wise.
There is this loud, highly repetitious thudding that is most likely some drums being hit. Behind it is some quiet rumbling that sound a bit like guitars, and behind those is some faint crackling that could probably be some sort of black metal rasp. From what I can tell, the drumming is extremely basic in nature, though it doesn't sound like blasting in the vein of 'Funeral Fog' or 'I Am Thy Labyrinth', to be honest.
Even if it was, the blasting can't be heard, so they may as well have never happened. The guitar riffs are just as repetitive, and while this is fine on Deathcrush or even this band's debut, the tone here is so bad that the riffs become outright annoying to listen to.
I can't even comment on the vocals, as I can't here enough of them to make a judgement. They are there, so hats off, I guess. Songwriting is never too much of an issue with black metal, and the songwriting here is actually quite good, in this sense.
It features the same primitive, repetitive style that is heard on this band's '87 demo and debut, as well as the likes of Transilvanian Hunger. It is the sort that allows the songs to develop atmospherically rather than instrumentally. Unfortunately, it is all for naught, because the music presented here sounds terrible. This doesn't even have the virtue of any tracks exclusive to this demo.
Every track here, barring 'Ghoul' and the intro 'Voice of a Tortured Skull' has been re-recorded at some point with significantly better production and much tighter performances.
The intro sounds like crap, and doesn't do a whole lot to conjure up any atmosphere, and 'Ghoul' sounds like anything else here - over-distorted, incomprehensible, incoherent rubbish.
This release had a little bit of point back in '86, but now is completely useless, Pure (Clorinated) - Endless Shame - Pure (CD), save for one iota of historical value. I know that this sort of raw and 'kvlt' production, so to speak, is considered the norm in black metal. And that is fine, I get the appeal. Hell, it is what makes black metal seem so hostile and desolate in atmosphere, but there is a limit to this effect.
When the production obfuscates the songs to the point where they could be passed off as a recent Sloth demo, as in, pure noise, then it doesn't give that atmosphere.
It just sounds rubbish, and regardless of what the band were playing, that is irrelevant. The sound produced in the end is what is important for instance, who cares if the drummer blasts when you can't fucking here it! This thing also proves that once again, production goes a long way, even on a demo tape of this nature.
Don't bother with this; the historical significance alone is not enough to pick up such an abysmal and pointless demo by a great band. Go and get Deathcrushwhich is this formula done right, to hear Mayhem at their rawest. Hey, kids! Ever wondered what "Deathcrush" would sound like if you threw a cassette of it into a clogged toilet, let it sit for a few days, took it out, dried it next to an open fire, took a piss on it, then played it back at half speed while wiggling your finger on the play button?
