“Black Metal: Evolution Of The Cult” by Dayal Patterson is a 600-page tome exploring the history and development of black metal from its beginnings in the early 1980s to the present day. Due in November, the book will feature dozens of interviews with the most significant protagonists and a wealth of previously unpublished images.

This visually exciting musical genre, known for its extreme views and actions, has finally breached the mainstream in televised parodies and bestselling publications by Vice and Feral House. Despite a history of criminal actions, black metal has become Norway’s biggest cultural export, earning it support from the government itself.
