Synopsis: In the last two decades, a bizarre and violent musical subculture called "Black Metal" has emerged in Norway. Its roots stem from a heady blend of horror movies, heavy metal music, Satanism, Paganism, and adolescent angst. In the early-mid 1990s, members of this extremist underground committed murder, burned down medieval wooden churches, and desecrated graveyards. What started as juvenile frenzy came to symbolize the start of a war against Christianity, a return to the worship of the ancient Norse gods, and the complete rejection of mainstream society.
About the Author: American documentary photographer Peter Beste has spent the last eight years working in the milieu of this insulated and secretive community. Beste's access and insight has been absolutely without precedent, resulting in an amazing photographic journey.

Book Description Vice Books, New York, 2009. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. First Edition. Photography by Peter Beste. Edited by Johan Kugelberg. Introduction by Jon "Metalion" Kristiansen. Brooklyn, New York: Vice Books, 2009. Third edition, limited to 4,000 copies. Over the course of eight years, Beste traveled to Norway thirteen times to photograph the blackest of the black: apolitical and anti-Christian separatist self-preservationists. He came away with more than 200 images of both the absurd and the deadly serious, real and fake blood, church crosses and inverted ones worn as the jewelry de rigeur, all set against the country’s idyllic landscape. This unprecedented photographic journey is accompanied by a black metal history timeline, from Norway’s conversion to Christianity to the arrival of every classic band and landmark album; additional photographs and articles from Norway’s Slayer Mag, and tabloid stories on some of the infamous events associated with the movement. Signed by Beste on the front flyleaf. Folio. Original pictorial boards; issued without a dust jacket. A fine copy. Seller Inventory # 64327
