So, according to Terrorizer magazine, legendary metal act Mayhem recently brought human remains with them to France that the decorated the stage with for their recent set at Hellfest.

“They were all human remains — skulls and bones — on the stage of Mayhem’s ‘Liberation By Evil’ performance at Hellfest,” said frontman Attila Csihar. “It was [done] for spiritual reasons, not for sensation.”

No. Nothing Mayhem’s ever done was for sensation.

“To stand and sing from the ‘Altar Of Death’ in front of 8,000 people at Hellfest was extreme and important both artistically and personally — that feeling is just indescribable,” he said. “I am not sure if it’s the best idea to say officially that we used real human bones on our performance. However, it is the simple truth. We are Mayhem and I am Attila, I always say the truth, nothing more and nothing less.”

I wonder how they got the human bones. That’s kind of an important question, no? I mean, something tells me Attila’s going to be getting a phone call from some manner of authorities. That’s nuts.
