I'm telling you these people are Satanists. As I sit here, they are satanists. Look, look, the world is full of these kind of things - black masses, mutilations. Mutilations. The incubus, the succubus. [Editor's note: Yes, I am making a The 'Burbs quote medley here. Pretend I'm Sting trying to sa...

Ok, this was a fascinating read, but one that I wouldn't really recommend. On one hand, I am completely intrigued by fringe groups and underground subcultures (in a scholarly if not voyeuristic way), but on the other hand I really really hate these guys, and want them to stop being such horrible...

Okay. I'm reading this because I'm a music fanatic and fascinated by fanaticism and counterculture, not because I'm a Satanist OR a fan of black/death metal. That said, this book is hilarious. If you read between the lines, you see a bunch of scrawny, insecure boys who stumbled upon a way to scar...

I wanted to give this book four stars for a long time, but i changed to three, because there were anyway too many things that annoyed me to some extent. Let me start with explaining myself. I have gotten very much into Black Metal lately and although I already listened to Satyricon ten years ago,...

I've been looking forward to reading this for years, and only just got round to it. I think it's fair to say I got more pleasure out of the looking forward to than I did from actually reading it. The prose and editing are as bad as you'd expect in a Feral House book; I feel quite comfortable sayi...

The world of metal – even black metal – isn’t foreign to me. It doesn’t conjure up frightening images of animal sacrifice or Satanic black mass, nor does it undermine my worldview and reality. By my own admission, then, I was bound to be disappointed by this book: I don’t see black metal as the n...

Empecé a escuchar música agresiva desde muy pequeño. Hablando de Metal y derivados, a estas alturas de mi vida he escuchado un poco de todo y tengo muy en claro cuales son mis géneros favoritos y cuales prefiero dejar de lado. En el caso del Black Metal, mi primera exposición hacía él fué también...

Un trabajo periodístico exhaustivo sobre el origen y el desarrollo del black metal. Una de las grandes ventajas del libro es que puede ser leído por cualquier persona, aún desconociendo el género, y seguramente podrá encontrarlo interesante. He leído algunas críticas (particularmente de los músico...

This might as well be called "Everything you wanted to know about Satanism in music but were afraid to ask." It's ridiculously comprehensive, and I would recommend that you skim some sections (unless you're fascinated about the late 1990s state of death metal worldwide, detailed on a country by c...

I read Lords Of Chaos when it was first published. Thanks to my friend, Lydia, being employed at a bookstore on Sundays, I received a copy of this new, updated edition. Hot dog! Black metal, murder and mayhem. The story of Norwegian black metal is, perhaps necessarily, wrapped up in Satanism and p...
