Dawn of the Black Hearts is a bootleg live album by the Norwegian black metal band Mayhem. It is infamous for bearing a photograph of Mayhem's vocalist, Dead (Per Yngve Ohlin), after his suicide in April 1991. This photograph was allegedly taken by Mayhem's guitarist, Euronymous (Øystein Aarseth), upon discovering Dead's body. It was rated 1 out of The 50 Most Controversial Album Covers Of All Time! by Gigwise.com.
Despite only being a "semi-official" release, this notorious bootleg is commonly listed as one of the band's main albums.
The album was originally released in 1995 on vinyl in an edition of 300 copies by Warmaster Records by Mauricio "Bull Metal" Montoya, owner of Warmaster Records in Colombia and pen pal of Euronymous. This original version contains eight songs from a concert in Sarpsborg on 28 February 1990, as well Mayhem's logo and title in golden ink.
The album has been reissued many times by various independent record labels. Many of these reissues feature an extra four songs, recorded at a concert in Ski during 1986, with Messiah on vocals. Some of the re-releases erroneously claim that the additional songs come from a Lillehammer show and feature Maniac on vocals.
