Mayhem: black metal trailblazers

After years of painstaking research – and knuckle-breaking transcription – long-term Hammer scribe Dayal Patterson’s definitive, 600-page history of the black metal scene, Black Metal: Evolution Of The Cult is complete, and it’s available for pre-order via Amazon at a reduced price for the earlycomers!

Featuring a humongous number of interviews across the entire spectrum (check below for a partial list), as well as never-seen-before photos …Evolution Of A Cult takes in 30 years of history, ranging from proto-black metal pioneers such as Venom, Bathory and Celtic Frost, through the blazing birth throes of the Norwegian scene to the subgenre’s most avant-garde and exploratory outposts as well as its most transgressive and contentious philosophies.

Dayal’s knack for a riveting, conscientious narrative – combined with a lifelong knowledge of the scene and a rare level of trust from all involved – leaves behind the sensationalism and various agendas so many authors and documentary makers have brought to bear on black metal, and treats it instead as the still vibrant and turbulent artform all genuine fans will recognise first and foremost, while still providing revelatory insights for fans both old and new. Black Metal: Evolution Of A Cult is published by Feral House, who also put out Albert Mudrian’s brilliant tome, Choosing Death: The Improbable History Of Death Metal and Grindcore, on November 12.
