"An intense, scary book about an intense, scary scene: black metal, which in the 1990s took heavy metal's obsession with darkness and evil to its logical conclusion. Moynihan and Soderlind chronicle a world of murder, hatred and madness; even if you don't have any interest in the bands (or in the 2018 Jonas kerlund film based on this book), you may come away with a new appreciation for what it means for music to be truly extreme." Kelefa Sannah, The New Yorker
