Re: Shotgun Suicide *ACTUAL ALBUM COVER*

R.I.P. Dead. There's a book out there called 'Lords of Chaos-The bloody rise of the satanic metal underground' (I can't remember who wrote it) that chronicles this, Dead's suicide and Euronymous' murder at the hands of Burzum frontman Varg Vikernes. It's a wicked read. Mayhem rules!

Per Yngve Ohlin (Dead of MayheM)

This is the photograph of Per Yngve Ohlin, or "Dead" as he was known, lead singer of mayhem, taken by his friend Euronymous...



Sorry if this is a repost

Bit of info...

In time, Ohlin's social situation and his fascination with death caused his mental state to worsen greatly. He would often cut himself onstage with a blade or broken bottle. However, he also tried to do so while with his friends, who would have to subdue him and patch him up. Although this upset many of his friends, Euronymous became fascinated with Ohlin's suicidal tendencies—seemingly because it fit Mayhem's image—and he would often encourage Ohlin to kill himself.
In early 1991, Varg Vikernes sent Ohlin several shotgun shells as a present for either his birthday or Christmas. In April, Ohlin was left alone in Mayhem's countryside house. On 8 April 1991, Ohlin slit his wrists and throat with a kitchen knife, but eventually tired of waiting and shot himself in the forehead with a shotgun using the shells sent by Vikernes. He left a brief suicide note, which apologized for having used the gun indoors and ended with: "Excuse all the blood".

The body was found by Euronymous, who had to climb through an open window as the doors were locked and there were no other keys to the house.

Upon finding the body, he got a camera and took several pictures of the corpse. He also allegedly kept bits of Ohlin's shattered skull. His motive for doing so is unclear; Necrobutcher speculated that forcing others to see the pictures was a way for Euronymous to cope with the shock of seeing his friend dead.

After Hellhammer developed the photos, Euronymous initially promised to destroy the pictures, but ultimately didn't: He would carry an envelope with the images in Helvete, and eventually one of the pictures found its way as the cover of the bootleg live album Dawn of the Black Hearts, which was released in 1995.
The suicide caused a rift between Euronymous and his friends, who were disgusted by his attitude towards Ohlin before the suicide, and his behavior afterwards. Necrobutcher and Manheim said that they ended their friendships with Euronymous.

Manheim later speculated that Euronymous had wilfully left Ohlin alone in the house so that he would have a chance to kill himself. Ohlin's suicide was said to cause "a change in mentality" in the black metal scene and was the first in a string of infamous events carried out by its members.

Re: Per Yngve Ohlin (Dead of MayheM)

If he slit his throat and wrists first and then eventually shot himself then how come the knife is on top of the gun??
Good post all the same

Not exactly sure myself, unless Euronymous who took the photo placed them there so the knife as well as the gun was in the shot. That's the only thing I can think
