Dead (1969 - 1991)
Dead, his stage name, was the first Mayhem singer and the guy who blew his brains out because the Norwegian black metal scene was getting overrun by posers. I'm sure it was more complicated than that. His band mates found the body and took pictures of his corpse, brains poured all over the floor, to use for their next album cover! I saw it, it's pretty gross. The band's founding member was later murdered by the bassist, who has just recently been released from prison after 20 years. Some movie about it seems to be coming out, or is out already. Anyways, their music is an amazing style of black metal (one of the original styles), and is especially good due to the drums and various singers they went through. I drew this 5 years ago.
