Arguably the most interesting and visually exciting subgenre of metal and even, it could be argued, music as a whole, black metal has long proved fascinating to both those within its fast-growing community and to outsiders looking in. It brings together not only a variety of extreme and cutting edge sounds and aesthetics, but also previously unheard of levels of controversy, including anti-religious actions, radical politics and worldviews and criminal activity including church burnings and even murder. Despite this it has breached the mainstream to the extent that it is recognized within publications from Metal Hammer to Vice to broadsheet papers, and has become Norway’s biggest cultural export, earning it support from the government itself. 600 pages, 300 photos, 100 interviews. Hardcover.
