Dear friends, at last our release plan for 2021 kicks off, and with a double release at that! Last year, we ended on a literary note, this year we are picking up where we left off, heading into the history of one of the cornerstones of extreme metal, of a genre where blasphemy, evil, darkness and nihilism reign; simply put, into the history of black metal!

You may remember the English writer and music journalist Dayal Patterson as the author of the official biography of the Hellenic black metal icon Rotting Christ. However before that, Dayal penned a comprehensive history of the global black metal scene, which, entitled "Black Metal: Evolution of the Cult", was published in 2013 as his debut book, with three more sequels following in later years.

And it is this utterly black saga that now, in cooperation with publishing houses Cult Never Dies and Feral Housegets a Czech translation, with the first two volumes - "Black Metal: Evoluce kultu" and "Black Metal: Předehra ke kultu" - scheduled already for the end of May!

We will of course delve deeper into these tomes in our usual coverage, so stay tuned should you wish to know more.
