LORDS OF CHAOS: The Bloody Rise of the Satanic Metal Underground

Venice, California: Feral House, 2003. Trade paperback. Numerous textual photographs and illustrations. Venice, California: Feral House, 2003. Revised and expanded edition, later printing. Was it “an escalation of an internal competition for transgressive, subjective capital” (Keith Kahn-Harris, Extreme Metal) or is this the greatest performance art ever? There are certainly no shortage of theories when it comes to the history of Norwegian black metal, which rivals any Norse epic. In this, the best known work on the subject, journalists Michael Moynihan and Didrik Soderlind chart the evolution of the black metal sound, characterized by fast tempos, shrieked vocals, highly distorted guitars, blast beat drumming, and lo-fi recording, and the anti-Christian, misanthropic scene it inspired. Recently, it was announced that Bathory co-founder and film director Jonas Akerlund will direct a movie based on the book, with Rory Culkin and Caleb Landry Jones appearing in leading roles. Signed by Moynihan on the half-title. Original glossy paper wrappers. A near fine copy. Near fine. Item #64326
