* GenrePopularizer: For black metal. Specifically speaking, Mayhem essentially started up second-wave black metal, but first-wave black metal covers a lot of bands that are totally dissimilar to Mayhem (CelticFrost and [[Music/KingDiamond Mercyful Fate]], for example), and the actual black metal genre didn't really have a proper definition until Mayhem and co. came along. (It is worth noting, however, that many of the second wave's most important characteristics had already been established by Music/{{Bathory}}, particularly on ''Under the Sign of the Black Mark'').

Following Dead's suicide, Dead was replaced by Hungarian vocalist Attila Csihar, and Necrobutcher left the band and was temporarily replaced by Varg "Count Grishnakh" Vikernes, sole member of Bergen-based group {{Burzum}}. During the recording of the band's first full-length album, ''De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas'', tensions rose between Euronymous and Vikernes, which later resulted in Vikernes killing Euronymous, stabbing him a total of 21 times. Due to complaints from Euronymous's family, Hellhammer promised to remove Vikernes's basslines and record them himself, but this didn't happen. The explanation is either him feeling it was fitting that killer and victim should perform on the same album, or simply (and more likely) not having the time and money to go back and replace them, not to mention not knowing how to play bass.

Blasphemer has since left the band, owing to his various other projects (such as Ava Inferi and Aura Noir), and was replaced by a succession of live guitarists (among them Morfeus and Teloch). The band reportedly have a new album due out later in 2014.

* BrownNote: "Freezing Moon" was allegedly intended to induce listeners to commit suicide, though it's highly questionable as to whether this has actually happened.

* AltumVidetur: ''Ordo ad chao'' is grammatically incorrect Latin for "Out of order comes chaos" (an inverted version of the Freemasons' motto, ''Ordo ab chao'', or "Out of chaos comes order". A grammatically correct version would be ''Ordo ad chaos''). ''De mysteriis Dom Sathanas'' translates roughly as "Of Lord Satan's Secret Rites" or "About the Mystery of the Lord Satan". The band uses other Latin in its lyrics, though it is also not always grammatically correct.

** In his interview for Until the Light Takes Us, Vikernes stated that they went out of their way to use the shittiest possible equipment while recording to the point where the mic used to record vocals was a tiny, outdated and almost nonfunctional headset.
