Mayhem -- Louisville, KY -- December 9th, 2011

Ending up going to this by myself after my friend bailed, but it was totally worth it. Missed Abigail Williams, Hate was terrible, Keep of Kalessin was terrible, but Mayhem totally dominated. What a lot of people forget because of the relatively conventional nature of Deathcrush and De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas that everything else this band has done is fucked up and crazy and avant-garde and off-kilter. That really shined through, and so did Attila's insanity. Not sure if there's another frontman who I think is legitimately a loose cannon like he is. I was pretty sure if the show went badly the fake noose he put around his neck would have become real in a hurry. Dude's crazy, but it only makes his performance stronger. No pig heads last night, but lots of fog, inverted crosses, a noose, weird pagan symbols painted on his face, and yes, the famous human skull. Great gig.
