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 singer, Dead (Per Yngve Ohlin), after his suicide in April 1991. The photograph was taken by Mayhem's guitarist, Euronymous (Øystein Aarseth), when he discovered the body.

The album was released in 1995 on vinyl in an edition of 300 copies by Warmaster Records by Mauricio "Bull Metal" Montoya, owner of Warmaster Records Colombia, original drummer of the Colombian death metal band Masacre and a pen pal of Euronymous. This original version contains eight songs from a concert in Sarpsborg on February 28, 1990. The label bears the band's logo and the album title in golden ink.

The album has been reissued many times by various independent record labels, with many including four extra songs, recorded at a concert in Ski, Norway, during 1986, with Messiah on vocals. Most of the re-releases erroneously claim that the additional songs come from a Lillehammer show with Maniac on vocals.

Despite being a "semi-official" release, the bootleg is commonly listed as one of the band's main albums.
