Bard "Faust" Eithun
"First time I saw Dead and Euronimous at Anthrax show in Oslo in 1991, and I was really impressed. Dead was almost as tall as me, but very very lean, his jacket was all dappled with different symbols and there was Mayhem logo on its back."
About Dead - he is insane. I think those rumors you heards are bit intrue, he doesn't day has been dead 3 times. but he believes that he is the incarnation of Vlad (Dracula). Hу сге himself up pretty extreme at gig we did and if he gets too drunk he also cut, but not only himself, unfortunately. At new years eve he almost cut up his artery, but he don't remember anything himself. I do. We had to put handcuffs on him.
"He was a very special person, a good friend. Very shy, very quiet. He didn’t talk to many people. He stuck to himself and a few people he knew...Dead had extreme views about everything: he talked about being non-human, not belonging on earth. He told me stories that he was almost dying when he was a kid, because he was sleeping so deeply and his face turned blue, and he wanted to die when he was only two or three years old. They couldn’t wake him when he was sleeping; I think it was something between deep sleep and unconsciousness."
"I don't think anyone knew Dead that well. He just wanted to be left alone. He was a really special guy and his vocals and lyrics were fucking amazing."
"He didn't see himself as human; he saw himself as a creature from another world. He said he had many visions that his blood has frozen in his veins, that he was dead. That is the reason he took that name. He knew he would die."
