  • Black Metal


From the early 1980s pioneers to its fiery rebirth in Scandinavia through to today's increasingly diverse groups, this epic tome captures the movement's development in unparalleled detail and images through such bands and personalities as Dimmu Borgir, Mayhem, Behemoth, Tormentor, Emperor, Darkthrone, Samael, Gorgoroth, and many dozens of others.

Increasingly influential, black metal continues to grow and expand as a musical form as well as the subject of serious and satirical, animated, documentary, and narrative feature films.

Publisher Feral House has already published the most famous and award-winning book about this subculture, Lords of Chaos, soon to become a narrative feature film directed by Jonas Ackerlund, an ex-black metal musician who has directed feature films and award-wining videos for the likes of Madonna and Lady Gaga.
