Life and death

A quiet, introverted person, Dead is perhaps best known for his stage antics. He was known to bury his clothes weeks before a concert and to then dig them up again on the night of the event. This way he would have, as he put it, the "essence of death"; wearing torn, dirty, moldy, and bug-infested clothing. During one tour with Mayhem he found a dead raven, which he collected and stored in a plastic bag. He would often smell the bag before performing, saying he needed to "inhale the smell of death." This article deals with the psychological term Introversion. ...


On several occasions Dead cut himself with broken glass and hunting knives. During one show in Sarpsborg, Norway in 1990, he cut himself with a broken bottle so badly that he had to be taken to a hospital due to a loss of blood. Dead was also part of the "inner circle" (a cult-like group that most of the early Norwegian Black Metal musicians were involved in), a selective group with members such as Øystein 'Euronymous' Aarseth, Varg Vikernes (Burzum) and Faust (Emperor).

On April 8, 1991, a fellow Mayhem band member, Øystein 'Euronymous' Aarseth, found Dead dead, with slit wrists, and a shotgun wound to the head. The suicide note that was found with his corpse simply read "Excuse all the blood" (Hellhammer later elaborated that the note was a bit more detailed, including apologies for having to use the shotgun inside the house but the knife was just too dull to finish the job). Euronymous then ran off and bought a disposable camera and took pictures of the grisly scene, which were later used for a bootleg album entitled Dawn of the Black Hearts, containing recordings from the previously mentioned Sarpsborg, Norway gig from 1990, as well as four live songs Mayhem performed with their old vocalist in 1986. Aarseth was also said to have eaten parts of Dead's brain, and to have made necklaces out of fragments of his skull. The necklace was later stolen while on tour. It is also rumoured that pieces of his skull were mailed out to bands that Aarseth saw as "worthy", such as the Swiss band Samael. According to Mayhem drummer Hellhammer, Morgan S. Håkansson of Marduk still has some pieces of Dead's skull. It from Abruptum also claims to have small pieces. Image File history File links Deadand_e. ...

Trivia

Dead also had an appearance in the Candlemass video for the song "Bewitched." He is part of the group who "doom dances" to Messiah Marcolin's grave.


In the picture of his body (from the cover of 'Dawn of Black Hearts'), the knife which he used to cut his wrist and forearms is resting on top of the sawn-off shotgun he used to commit suicide. This occurrence is unexplainable. Nobody will ever figure out how this happened for certain because he and the only person (Euronymous) who marred with the body at the time have since died.
