Extreme Metal II by Joel McIver
Newly revised and updated, with even more bands detailed and dissected, including the biggest names in Grindcore, Gorecore, Pagan Metal, Viking Metal and Vampire Metal, Extreme Metal is more than just an encyclopaedia. It takes a rare look at an ever-proliferating music scene that will horrify, thrill and shock you. From Abhorrant to Zyklon, from the chart-toppiong success of Slipknot to the trials and church-burnings of Count Grishnackh and Burzum, no stone is left unturned. Any fan of music just that bit different from the homogenous mass of plastic pop will find something to cherish within these pages.
