German language edition of this revised and updated, Ultimate guide to Extreme Metal! With even more bands detailed and dissected, including the biggest names in Grindcore, Gorecore, Pagan Metal, Viking Metal and Vampire Metal, Extreme Metal is more than just an encyclopedia.
Since McIver's original book in 2000, there has been a surge in metal bands and genres and now it takes a rare look at an ever-proliferating music scene that will horrify, thrill and shock you. From Abhorrant to Zyklon, from the chart-topping success of Slipknot to the trials and church-burnings of Count Grishnackh and Burzum, no stone is left unturned. Any fan of music just that bit different from the homogeneous mass of plastic pop will find something to cherish within these pages.
