"It might be a cliché but DOOM METAL LEXICANUM is mandatory reading and ownership for all doom fans. It is highly unlikely this book will be surpassed in the near future."

"Where some books retread old ground and retell stories you already know, Doom Metal Lexicanum is a journey into a new world for newbies and doom experts alike."


"It is an absolute joy. Aleksey, take a bow and probably a well deserved rest too... You like doom? Of any kind? You need this. End of."

Ave Noctum

"This book is as essential to Doom fans as vinyl copies of the first six BLACK SABBATH albums..."

Voices Of The Darkside

"One of the best (if not the best, in terms of completeness...) encyclopaedic works currently on the market on this metal niche."

“If you’re new to doom, it’s a good place to start. If you're already into doom, it’s a great place to make a stand.”
Marco Serrato Gallardo (Orthodox)
