Dayal Patterson "Black Metal: Evolution of the Cult" 
Publisher: Feral House,U.S., United States (2014)
Language: English

Arguably the most interesting and visually exciting subgenre of metal and even, it could be argued, music as a whole, black metal has long proved fascinating to both those within its fast-growing community and to outsiders looking in. It brings together not only a variety of extreme and cutting edge sounds and aesthetics, but also previously unheard of levels of controversy, including anti-religious actions, radical politics and worldviews and criminal activity including church burnings and even murder. Despite this it has breached the mainstream to the extent that it is recognized within publications from Metal Hammer to Vice to broadsheet papers, and has become Norway’s biggest cultural export, earning it support from the government itself.

Published by Feral House, Black Metal: Evolution of the Cult captures the progress of the genre, from its infancy in the early eighties through to its resurrection in the nineties and onwards to the fascinating scene we see today. Combining interviews with the key individuals involved with editorial insight and iconic photography this epic tome examines the artistic, musical, spiritual development of the genre and the creative work, ideologies and often colourful lives of some of its most significant bands including:

Venom, Mercyful Fate, Bathory, Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, Sodom, Slayer, Kreator, Destruction, Vulcano, Sarcofago, Blasphemy, Samael, Rotting Christ, Necromantia, VON, Tormentor, Master’s Hammer, Beherit, Mayhem, Vomit, Thorns, Darkthrone, Burzum, Thou Shalt Suffer and Emperor, Gehenna, Gorgoroth, Trelldom, Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, Mütiilation, Vlad Tepes, Belketre and the Black Legions, Dissection, Watain, Marduk and Funeral Mist, Shining, Graveland, Infernum, Behemoth, Enslaved, Satryricon, Isengard/Storm, Ulver, Windir, Negura Bunget, Hades, Primordial, Arcturus, Manes, In the Woods..., Ved Buens Ende, Fleurety, Sigh, Dødheimsgard, Mysticum, Aborym, Blacklodge, Amesoeurs/Alcest, Fen, Wolves in the Throne Room, Lifelover

Included throughout the book are a wealth of images, many of which are previously unpublished, and in some cases, never seen before, with unseen images dating right back to Mayhem's Deathcrush sessions in the eighties.

The BLACK METAL: PRELUDE TO THE CULT mini-book is a collection of black metal interviews by Dayal that are not included (or mentioned only briefly) in Black Metal: Evolution of the Cult. Some were made for the book but never made it into the main text, others date back ten years to the publishing of Dayal's first zine Crypt but are touched up in Evolution, and plenty inbetween. 

(Includes MAYHEM, ARCHGOAT, CLANDESTINE BLAZE, TAAKE, GORGOROTH, IMPALED NAZARENE, BEHERIT, 1349/SATYRICON, MANIAC/SKITLIV, ENTHRONED, HORNA/BEHEXEN, SIGH, MARDUK, HADES and more).


Dayal Patterson is a writer and photographer who began his career in music journalism with the publication of his own zine, Crypt, a decade ago. He is now a regular writer and photographer for Metal Hammer and Record Collector magazine, having also contributed to the likes of The Quietus, Terrorizer and Classic Rock Presents, as well as penning biographies and liner notes for the likes of Marduk and Killing Joke.
