There was a time where you may have feared for your life while attending a Mayhem concert. Now that piece-of-shit bassist Count Grishnackh is out of the band (he admitted to plotting a murder of a former bandmate), Necrobutcher is carrying on the Mayhem torch as the only founding member still with the black metal band which plays Orpheum in Ybor City on Saturday.
It's been seven years since it's been to Tampa Bay, and at Orpheum no less. This weekend, the band returns to the same location for possibly the last time as the Ybor City venue recently announced plans to move out of the historic district.
Sadly, Swedish black metal band Watain was forced off the bill due to Visa issues.
