    When explaining my love of Swedish death metal to non-fans, I always fall back on one main point that suddenly piques their curiosity. Death Metal is to Sweden what hardcore punk was to American music in the 1980s. Entombed and At the Gates were as important in Sweden as Black Flag and Minor Threat were on American soil. And while purists can debate the relative importance of all the aforementioned bands, the simple fact is the DIY ethic that defined 1980s American punk — with its small enclav [...]

    I havent been a huge fan of the Swedish Death metal scene besides Entombed which I love. But I have to say that the book has gotten me very interested and have since I read the book I have bought the 3 disc collection which accompanies the book. The book is a good read with a lot of passion and great insights into the scene wich was just miles away from me but I hadnt a clue. However I think the book suffers from all the details, you dont have to name every band that has played ever. It gets in [...]

    Finally, Swedish metal gets its props! Norway usually gets all the credit for metal, while Sweden is dismissed as full of crappy Gothenburg-sound bands like In Flames. But what has Norwegian metal really done since Darkthrone, Mayhem, et al? And how can anyone write off a scene that produced bands like Bathory, Candlemass, Anti Cimex, Entombed, Nihilist, At the Gates, Unleashed, Disfear?His own translation from the original Swedish text, Ekeroth's insider perspective is both informative and hila [...]

    I read this book some four or five years ago but of what I can remember the book includes some of the more renowned bands like Entombed, Grave and Dismember but also includes unknown or lesser known bands that only got out one or two demos before disbanding. This makes the book very comprehensive and Ekeroth gives a unique insight into the swedish death metal scene from when it first started in the late eighties to today. You don't need to be a death metal fan (which I barely consider myself to [...]

    This book succeeded in making me curious about this genre of music. The main problem I have with it is that it is written like a fan would write it. This is a fact that has its own merits -- if you're already into it, it's gonna be a fun read -- but it also ends up being incoherent in the way it presents the topic. There isn't a logical organization that I could follow clearly. A common one that books of this sort follow is to break it down by bands (one band, one chapter) or by periods (origins [...]

    only read a bit of this and skimmed through the rest, but its safe to say the rating is justified. a very in depth account of swedish death metal from 87 - 92, detailing from the scene's beginnings as a loose network of maniac tape traders, to a full fledged popularity boom in the early 90s, so the black metal movement from norway eventually overshadowing what the swedes were doing. focuses pretty heavily on many of the early players, including tons of narratives and antecdotes from the people i [...]

    For a hardcore metal head such as myself this book was a rare savage find. As I read over it I realized that I am not the metal head I thought I was, or atleast as educated in the realms of Death Metal. This book uses alot of hear say information, but also has a ton of information that is researchable; so it is not a total loss in the realms of being a good research book for the Black and Death Metal scene. This book is high point for the culture and movement that is Black and Death Metal. Cultu [...]

    The info here is great, sometime half way through it gets a bit tired. Essentially listing demo after release, and how good or bad it is to the author's opinion - most of the time he is correct - but like most of the mid-1990s it shows the tedium of unoriginality that was most death metal. Its best up until Entombed's "Left Hand Path" and a few other albums then stagnates until Black Metal give it a run for its money; all hail Dissection and Abruptum.

    This book was pretty cool, although it's a little too "oral history" for my tastes. At times, it also read more like a list of releases, like "Band A released Demo #1, which was great, but then they released Demo #2 and Demo #3, which weren't as good. Then Band B released Demo #2, which was awesome," etc.BUT - as a reference, especially with the insane reviews-type section in the back, this book is awfully handy.

    what a bookanybody who is remotely intereted in old school extreme metal has tojust has toad thiswhat a glorious and exciting history of the swedish (and few others) death metal and black metal heroessurely an impressive education for mei am rushing to check out many albums and artists i have not heard so far

    Meh, some amusing anecdotes. Maybe something got lost in translation. Not as good as listening to Swedish Death Metal.

    I'm not a true fan of extreme metal. I listen to punk, hardcore, electronica, American jazz and Pow Wow drum music. I started listening to this sub genre of metal, interestingly enough, as a way to understand the dark times during which my father was dying. I began with a deep exploration of black metal by reading Dayal Patterson's Black Metal with an accompanying soundtrack of YouTube albums. After a month of reading and listening and trying to figure out how these musicians process the pain of [...]

    Overall, I liked the book. Learning more about the scene was enjoyable, but I have to agree with several other reviewers: this book was written like a fan would write it. It's not quite organized as much as it could/should be, and the constant opinion of the writer gets old - I care more about how it influenced the actual scene as a whole rather than the author of the book.Additionally, the book is like 450 pages, but literally half of them are a huge list of the Swedish bands. Looking at the ph [...]

    The greatest love story I've ever read. Ekeroth fawns over the titular genre with a reverence matched only by his knowledge. Curl up with your crusty HM-2 and prepare to experience the late 80s - early 90s as only a Swedish teen could express it.

    Essential for anyone who loves the brutal side of metal. The swedish scene flourished (rotted?) so well because it was not planned. It was naïve in it's core, just teenagers who loved morbid things trying to sound as brutal as they could, the best things are made out of spontaneity. RECOMMENDED IT.

    Overall I thought this was a fantastic book. It really portrays Swedish Death metal in all it's glory and folly. I found myself laughing at every photograph and antidote in this book. The fliers made me really jealous since I was only 3 years old when Swedish Death metal was in it's prime. I also love how the book began with punk and ended with other subgenres that death metal created. My own criticism of this book is that the author is a fanboy for Entombed and rags on melodeath like In Flames [...]

    Un libro interessante che rende giustizia alla nascita della scena Death Metal svedese, dove vengono raccontati i musicisti, i concerti ed anche le serate alcoliche connesse. Ekeroth cerca anche di risalire al perchè in Svezia, all'epoca negli anni '80, non ci fosse praticamente niente di Metal, e tutto ad un tratto sono spuntate fuori band come funghi. Quindi, dal fiorente sottobosco Punk-HC ai grandiosi Bathory, si arriva poi ai grandiosi Nihilist, da cui poi nasceranno Entombed, Unleashed e [...]

    For fans of the genre this book was a welcome sight. Written by an author who was close to the scene and stuffed with interviews with most of the main players there are many fascinating anecdotes and revelations, not all of which will reinforce a fan's preconceptions of how the scene developed or what the kids who created their favorite bands and music were really like at this time. i.e. They were by and large dorky kids just like us. However, the book very much reads like a fan's account, with [...]

    This book is all about the early Death Metal scene in Sweden and what it was like to grow up during those times. Now the metal scene is growing larger and people have an easier way to access it. Back in the 80's and 90's many people relied on tape trading to get their music. This book also talks about the popular bands that rose during these times and the line-up changes through out the years. This book also briefly covers early Black Metal and some of the fued between the Death and Black Metal [...]

    Super informative. I'll have to re-read it or circle back to it in the future. It's packed so much information about different bands and artists that it's hard to keep straight. Still, I loved reading a history book devoted to my favorite brand of metal.

    great resource and an entertaining read. it is probably not necessary to reiterate your love of entombed on every single page but that is a minor quibble. luckily the book ends before too much attention is paid to at the gates/in flames kind of stuff.

    This should have been 100-150pp. longer--and I wish Ekeroth would have let me proof it for him: lots of type-o's!

    breaks down one of the most prolific music scenes of the entire planet. mr. Ekeroth really knows his stuff. and yes, he was in the eye of the hurricane that evolved into swedish death metal.

    Cheio de informações curiosas pra quem é fã de música extrema num todo. Leitura divertidíssima!

    A walk through the unprecedented history of some of the greatest Swedish death metal bands. The book is an interesting piece with lots of valuable information.

    An informative look at the birth, rise, and fall (well, not really- still rocking it!) of the musical genre that changed my life. If you're a heavy metal fan, check it out.
