Author Dayal Patterson’s Black Metal: Evolution of the Cult to Be Re-Released in New, Expanded Edition

Ten years after its original release, Dayal Patterson’s book Black Metal: Evolution of the Cult will be hitting book store shelves once again, only this time it’s bigger and blacker than before. Touted as the “Restored, Expanded & Definitive Edition,” this new version of the book will provide an updated and more expansive look into the subversive heavy metal genre within its more than 700 pages.

Patterson, who also founded Cult Never Dies publishing, originally collaborated with Decibel to get the book printed and the author said it only made sense to return to that well for this new version.

“I first worked with Decibel’s Albert Mudrian some 20 years ago when I interviewed him for my fanzine, Crypt. We’ve kept in touch since then, and Cult Never Dies and Decibel have collaborated on multiple projects, with us printing editions of their books for European readers and them creating U.S. editions of their books for ours. It was therefore a no-brainer that we would work together in bringing this mammoth new title to U.S. readers and we are extremely happy to have what is probably our most important title in safe and trusted hands.”

Included in this new version of the book is a staggering 120,000 new words added to the book, resulting in more than 20 new chapters, as well as the expansion of 20 older chapters. Those editions were possible thanks to more than 60 new interviews conducted for this version, bringing the total number of interviews done for Black Metal: Evolution of the Cult to more than 130 (the full list of which can be found below the video). The book also features an 80 page color photo section — that’s right, this book’s photo section could be made into its own book.

So whether you already have the original edition or have been looking for a new book to read that could also be used to take the lives of your mortal enemies, Black Metal: Evolution of the Cult – Restored, Expanded & Definitive Edition just might be for you.

The book will be released this December via Decibel and is available for preorder at either the North American or European webstores.
