METALION: THE SLAYER DIARIES

I’m so psyched on this shit. METALION: THE SLAYER DIARIES, a compilation of the classic Norwegian SLAYER Mag will be released this year from Bazillion Points. This is so inspiring for me and I can’t wait to get a copy.
Founded in 1985 in Sarpsborg, Norway, Slayer Mag quickly rose to prominence by championing countless unsigned death metal pioneers. The pages of Slayer Mag became a written gospel for the fledgling extreme metal underground, combining eye-ripping graphics, brutally honest writing, and a relentless and sick sense of humor. As black metal rose to prominence in Norway in the 1990s, Slayer Mag remained the final word on the moods and motivations of those dark times. In addition to rare archival material unseen in decades, the book will include unreleased and exclusive interviews and artwork, including historical photographs, and never-before-seen portrait photography by editor Jon “Metalion” Kristiansen.
