So that's why they call it Death Metal.

On 8 April 1991, A Norwegian black metal band "Mayhem" made metal history, when their frontman "Dead" committed suicide in the house owned by the band. He was found by "Euronymous"(guitarist) with slit wrists and a shotgun round to the head. Dead's suicide note read "Excuse all the blood, cheers." and included an apology for firing the weapon indoors. Instead of calling the police, Euronymous went to a nearby store and bought a disposable camera to photograph the corpse, after re-arranging some items. One of these photographs was later stolen and used as the cover of a bootleg live album entitled, "Dawn of the Black Hearts". Eventually, rumors surfaced that Euronymous made a stew with pieces of Dead's brain, and made necklaces with fragments of Dead's skull. Additionally, Euronymous claimed to have given these necklaces to musicians he deemed worthy...Mucho worthy.
