While the songs would eventually appear on 'De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas', 'Life Eternal' reveals how Mayhem's first full-length album became a foundational pillar for black metal. These five rough mixes were recorded with original guitarist Oystein "Euronymous" Aarseth. Attila Csihar toils with different vocal takes, especially on "Pagan Fears", which somehow sounds even more wicked than the final version. And while it was ultimately left on the cutting room floor, the pummeling drum flurry that opens this cut of "Funeral Fog" is vintage Hellhammer. 'Life Eternal' is a wild artifact from the most insane black metal band of all time.
