Before the Black Circle, before Deads suicide, before the murder of Euronymous, before the church burnings, before black metal as we now know it, there was Deathcrush! In 1987, the now legendary Mayhem birthed what would become one of the most influential black metal albums ever. This album is almost entirely responsible for what we know black metal as today. Perhaps Venom coined the phrase "Black Metal" but this album (along with a few others) is what was really responsible for the genre from a technical standpoint. The simplicity, the atmosphere, the production, the aggression, this is what black metal is all about!

  I love the raw sound of this album

Rating: 9 I like to think of this as the missing link between 1st and 2nd wave. There are definite thrash and death influences, but there is also that whole shriek and blast beat thing going on, without a doubt this is 50% 50% when it comes to the whole "BM waves" thing.

Fantastic Ep, raw as fuck. Heavy too, for standard tuning.
