Controversial Album Covers Pt. 25

Year: 1995

Mayhem: Dawn of the Black Hearts

The Problem: It is infamous for bearing a photograph of Mayhem’s vocalist, Dead, Per Yngve Ohlin, after his suicide in April 1991. This photograph was allegedly taken by Mayhem’s guitarist, Euronymous, Øystein Aarseth, upon discovering Dead’s body.

My Take: Oh, what a way to friend your pal! Euronymous rearranged the body and things in the room and took pictures of it. What a way to have someone to remember them by!
