On 8 April 1991, Mayhem vocalist Per Yngve Ohlin (who called himself ‘Dead’) committed suicide while alone in a house shared by the band.
Fellow musicians described Dead as odd, introverted and depressed. Before going onstage he went to great lengths to make himself look like a corpse and would cut his arms while singing.
Mayhem’s drummer, Hellhammer, said that Dead was the first to wear the distinctive ‘corpse paint’ that became widespread in the scene.
He was found with slit wrists and a shotgun wound to the head. The weapon belonged to Mayhem’s guitarist, Euronymous, which lead to rumours that the shotgun was left there to be used by Dead.
Dead’s suicide note apologized for firing the weapon indoors and ended: “Excuse all the blood”.
