New "What's In My Bag?" Episode with Necrobutcher of Mayhem

Necrobutcher of Mayhem What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

What does black metal legend Jørn "Necrobutcher" Stubberud go shopping for when he's at Amoeba San Francisco? The Mayhem bassist proved to have ecclectic tastes as he shopped before his in-store signing of his book, The Death Archives: Mayhem 1984-94, grabbing records like INXS' KickBringing up singer Michael Hutchence's unexpected death, Necrobutcher told us, "It's a different thing before and after the artist dies." 

Mayhem De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Alive

Mayhem are no strangers to death, as not only did early singer Pelle “Dead” Ohlin take his own life in 1991, but Mayhem's bass player at the time, Varg "Count Grishnackh" Vikernes aka Burzum, murdered founding member Øystein “Euronymous” Aarseth in 1993.

Necrobutcher is now the only remaining original member of Mayhem. As one of the founders of the band, he served as Mayhem's bassist from 1984-1991 and contributed to the 1987 Deathcrush EP. After the tragedies that struck the band between '91-'93, Necrobutcher reformed Mayhem in 1995, with a new lineup. His next studio release with the band was 1998's Wolf's Lair Abyss EP. He has since appeared on Mayhem's Grand Declaration of War (2000), Chimera (2004), Ordo ad Chao (2007), Esoteric Warfare (2014) and A Season in Blasphemy (2016). Live recordings include Live in Leipzig (1993), Dawn of the Black Hearts (1995), Mediolanum Capta Est (1999), Live in Marseille (2001), Live in Zeitz (2016), and De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Alive (2016). Necrobutcher has also performed with L.E.G.O., Kvikksølvguttene, Bloodthorn, and Checker Patrol.
