"These are compelling tales of fractured minds, pharmaceutical drugs legal and otherwise, self-harm and stays in mental institutions... insights into albums that you love but never really heard the group talking about... like the two books that came before it, this is an essential purchase for anyone who loves black metal"

Review, (Ave Noctum)

"After reading 'Black Metal- Evolution Of The Cult' I was convinced that this was the most important book on the matter. Dayal really knows how to get the best and the most in-depth answers from his subjects which results in very good reading. This again makes him one of the strongest journalists within the extreme metal field."

V'gandr, (Helheim, Taake)


Video preview of the book:



"Dayal knows how to get the most out of his interviewees and is certainly capable of weaving it all together into a narrative both informative and interesting. Deep knowledge and open-minded curiosity goes a long way...This might just be the definitive source on the topic."
J. E. Åsli  (Vemod, One Tail, One Head)

"What makes Dayal’s books so special is that he almost always manages to do interviews that are very deep and where no ‘sensitive’ issues are avoided."
Steven Willems, Rock Tribune magazine.
"The mind goes straight to the fanzines of the 80s and 90s with which this series of books shares most certainly the attitude and passion. Patterson, however, is not just a mere fan of the genre, and has achieved an extremely professional work that will satisfy the curiosity of the most diehard fans of the black flame."
Barbara Francone (Rock Hard Italy)


"I would like to congratulate you. Amazing work. Discovering these explanations/history of bands has been really interesting."

Lord Lokhraed (Nocturnal Depression)
