Came across this book on the internet... I usually prefer printed books, but in this case I bought the digital version for €9,- (printed version is US$ 20,-) to read on my tablet. Very cool, just started reading it, but already love it! The writer is/was a member of Dying Fetus & Misery Index, & he's talking about the Underground DM scene in the late 80s/early 90s. Also lots of members from bands all around the planet are talking about the early days, & how it progressed from there on. Very nice read, + lots of old school artwork & flyers printed in there too. A real treat for Death Metal underground freaks!

Yes me too! I got the digital edition on Amazon.de. They don't have a printed edition there, & if you order it from the US, you know the postage sucks! So I went for this one, & on my tablet it's (at least) as easy to read as a printed book. Really worth checking out, I came through it by accident, didn't know it existed!

I've known about this book for some time now. It looks amazing! Something else I've got to buy along with those Choosing Death, Swedish Death Metal, and Slayer zine books.
