Live in Leipzig is a live album by the Norwegian black metal band Mayhem. It was recorded at the Eiskeller club in Leipzig, Germany on 26 November 1990 but not released until 1993.[1] The songs performed during the concert were from the Pure Fucking Armageddon demo (1986), the Deathcrush EP (1987) and the as-yet-unrecorded album De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas (1994). It was one of the band's few official releases with Dead as vocalist.

AllMusic 3/5 stars[2]

AllMusic critic Steve Huey wrote, "With a shortage of official Mayhem material featuring this [original] lineup, it's a necessary item for devoted fans, even in spite of the less-than-ideal sound quality."[2]

German magazine Rock Hard included it in the list "250 Black-Metal-Alben, die man kennen sollte" ("250 Black Metal Albums You Should Know").[3]
