History

This Mayhem was formed on the US West Coast in 1983. The band was perhaps best known for inadvertently getting the Norwegian Mayhem to put a 'The True' superscript above its logo, but in fact the Burned Alive LP was well promoted in its time. The group was signed to the French label Black Dragon on the back of its As The World Burns demo. US metal remembered the band enough to issue a Mayhem compilation in 2006.

The band sounded like a cross between Motörhead and Megadeth. The band appeared on Metal Massacre VI with vocalist Nick Damis. Years later McCourt auditioned to replace Rob Halford via a demo tape.
