Choosing Death is widely recognized as the definitive history of extreme music subgenres. For this revised and expanded edition, author Albert Mudrian (editor-in-chief of Decibel magazine) reveals there is life after death metal; the book now flaunts a whopping 100 additional pages in three new chapters; 50 additional interviews; a grisly 16-page color insert; and a new cover painting by legendary death metal artist Dan Seagrave (known for his classic Entombed and Morbid Angel album covers).

Sweden is a small country in freezing northern Europe, with less than nine million inhabitants and a reputation for Volvos, hockey players, cheap furniture, vodka, and blonde women. Since the late 1980s, however, Sweden has produced over a thousand extreme heavy metal bands, creating one of the most respected regional music scenes in the world. This is the improbable history of how a marginalized teen movement crawled from Sweden s small towns and suburbs, and found a lasting place on the world stage. Daniel Ekeroth captures the epic tale with enlightening detail, beginning with Sweden s violent loss of innocence in the 1980s, through the metal s virtual chokehold on the country during the 1990s, into the lasting legacy and global influence in the turbulent 2000s of the Sunlight guitar tone, the Gothenburg Sound, and the countless offshoots of Sweden s most lethal cultural export. Bazillion Points has extensively revised and updated a classic for this expanded edition. The ultimate insider's account of the rise of Sweden's legendary extreme metal scene, the book boasts over 450 pages, over 500 images, and scores of exclusive interviews with members of Nihilist/ Entombed, In Flames, At the Gates, Dismember, Grave, Hypocrisy, Opeth, Unleashed, Marduk, Morbid, Mob 47, Deranged, Edge of Sanity, Merciless, Therion, Liers in Wait, Carnage, Carcass, Tiamat/Treblinka, Afflicted, Repugnant, the Haunted, and other central characters.

Just when Iâm getting the hang of this new life, death pays me another visit.
This time, it takes the form of a werewolf suicide, or at least thatâs what our moose-shifter deputy is calling it. But the victimâs ghost has other ideas, and since Iâm one of only two psychics in town, the restless spirit visits me, asking for my help in finding her killer. Thatâs fine, but does she have to do it right as Iâm having a romantic moment with my crush, Tanner Montcrief? Talk about a liplock block. Sure, Tanner is technically my boss now, and a romance with him is a big professional no-no. However, itâs also a gigantic personal yes please. But I canât refuse a ghostâs plea for help, so now, in the few spare moments between waiting tables, sleeping, listening to the litany of complaints from my emo canine familiar, and dodging come-ons from Ted the grim reaper, I get to solve another murder. I guess romance with Tanner will have to wait. But thatâs fine. Iâm not bitter. Seriously. Iâm not. (Okay, maybe just a little.)When one of the victimâs family members begins exhibiting the same signs of silver poisoning that brought down my new spirit friend, I know the clock is ticking. If I donât solve the murder and convince Deputy Manchester to make the arrest, the sleepy town of magical Salem could have another death on its hands. Hit the Buy Now button to start solving the mystery!Note: This book is free of swearing, graphic violence, and sex. Okay, so Nora has a few naughty thoughts (if you worked alongside Tanner every shift, you might too), but sheâs only human â¦ or, witch? However, no acts take place or are described during the course of the story.
Reviled and revered in equal measure since its inception over a decade ago the phenomenon known as Death Metal has pushed Hard Rock music to the very edge of acceptability, and way beyond. Death metal and its bastard offspring Grindcore, has become the pariah of the music world. From the founding fathers Death, Napalm Death, Carcass, Incantation, Impetigo, and Morbid Angel, to the rise of Swedish Death Metal legends In Flames, Carnage and At The Gates, the Black Death Metal of Marduk, the Christian Death Metal of Mortification and the political Noisecore of Agathocles. Every major force in the genre is included - Aborted, Malevolent Creation, Deicide, Dismember, Dissection, Cannibal Corpse, Six Feet Under, Vader, Krisiun, et al. All genres old and new are analysed in depth with full histories and detailed discographies of well over 3,000 bands. Also included are many rare photographs. No area of the globe has provided a safe haven and this book documents the burgeoning uprise of Death Metal bands in the Far East, Eastern Europe and South America. Despite its unceasing growth and increasing legions of fans quite remarkably the phenomenon of Extreme Metal has never been fully documented until now. This book, newly updated and amended, is a must for all serious extreme metal fans.
