Tribute Page

Deathlike Silence Productions was a Record Label founded in Oslo, Norway by Mayhem guitarist Oystein Aarseth who was known as Euronymous. The record label was the first extreme Black Metal Record Label in Norway and is considered to be the earliest originator of True Norwegian Black Metal.

The label operated until the death of Euronymous in 1993 when he was murdered by fellow band member bassist Varg Vikernes who was also signed to Deathlike Silence Productions for his solo albums under the name "Burzum".

Burzum was released first on the label before the first Mayhem full length "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas" which is the only Mayhem record to feature both Euronymous and Varg Vikerenes.



Mayhem Guitarist Euronymous Was The Founder of Deathlike Silence Productions

Euronymous - Oystein Aarseth, was the guitarist for Mayhem and also the founder of Deathlike Silence Productions.

Euronymous is considered to be one of the originators of the Black Metal sound and True Norwegian Black Metal.

During the operation of the record label Deathlike Silence Productions the band and their inner circle took part in a series of church burnings in Norway and we also linked to murders involving a group of Black Metal musicians in Norway including the bands Emperor and Thorns.

The first full length Mayhem record "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas" was recorded at this time during the incidents with label funding provided by Varg Vikerenes to promote Burzum and to release Mayhem's first record.

After the recording of the album and before it's release Varg Vikerenes murdered Euronymous apparently over a contract dispute about who owned the money and material for the Burzum and Mayhem albums which Varg Vikerenes appeared on with his music on the Mayhem Record.


The record label featured the catalog number series "ANTI-MOSH" which is probably a protest to groove oriented Death Metal and signifies the opposite style of Earache Records who used the catalog number series "MOSH" representing Death Metal, which was opposed by Euronymous who only represented unrelenting Black Metal.
