Issue 1 ("Incipit") of Helvete: A Journal of Black Metal Theory. Not to be confused with metal studies, music criticism, ethnography, or sociology, Black Metal Theory is a speculative and creative endeavor, one which seeks ways of thinking that count as Black Metal events - and indeed, to see how Black Metal might count as thinking. Theory of Black Metal, and Black Metal of theory. Mutual blackening. Therefore, we eschew any approach that treats theory and Metal discretely, preferring to take the left-hand path by insisting on "some kind of connaturality between the two, a shared capacity for nigredo."Issue 1: Incipit includes: Zareen Price, "Dilation: Editor's Preface" - Janet Silk, "Open a Vein: Suicidal Black Metal and Enlightenment" - Timothy Morton, "At the Edge of the Smoking Pool of Death: Wolves in the Throne Room" - Elodie Lesourd, "Baptism or Death: Black Metal in Contemporary Art, Birth of a New Aesthetic Category" - Amelia Ishmael, "The Night is No Longer Dead; it has a life of its own" [featuring artwork by: Alexander Binder, Gast Bouschet and Nadine Hilbert, Ibrahim R.

Black Metal is a genre often maligned as overtly concerned with nihilism, destructiveness and an insular obsession with Satanism and aggressive nationalism. In reality, it is a constantly evolving vehicle for musically and ideologically progressive groups and artists, one that is increasingly forward thinking despite maintaining a purity of expression that is tied to the past. The formative events that, in equal measure, shocked and fascinated the tabloids of Norway and the international Metal underground in the early 1990s have given way to pan-academic appraisal, far-reaching musical appropriation and new conceptions of regional and stylistic self-identity. Black Metal — Beyond the Darkness aims to look past the much-discussed Second Wave spearheaded by groups and artists such as Mayhem, Burzum, Darkthrone and Emperor, with a new focus on a number of the form’s lesser-reported international scenes; developments in the selling and distribution of Black Metal through labels, stores and distros; idiosyncratic aesthetics and inherent notions of theatricality; Black Metal’s relationship with the world of Fine Art; and oral recollections of the genre’s development, amongst other topics. Illustrated with previously unseen archival photography, record covers, ephemera and other diverse aesthetic documentation of the genre, Black Metal — Beyond the Darkness includes newly commissioned essays by Nathan T Birk, Louis Pattison, Nick Richardson, Jérôme Lefèvre and Diarmuid Hester, as well as newly prefixed texts by Brandon Stosuy and Hunter Hunt-Hendrix, alongside testimonials by groups and individuals including John ‘Metalion’ Kristiansen, Ulver, Imperial, Trine + Kim Design Studio, Nicola Masciandaro and Jon “Thorns” Jamshid.

In the last two decades, a bizarre and violent musical subculture called "Black Metal" has emerged in Norway. Its roots stem from a heady blend of horror movies, heavy metal music, Satanism, Paganism, and adolescent angst. In the early-mid 1990s, members of this extremist underground committed murder, burned down medieval wooden churches, and desecrated graveyards. What started as juvenile frenzy came to symbolize the start of a war against Christianity, a return to the worship of the ancient Norse gods, and the complete rejection of mainstream society.

Mayhem’s story is the definitive black metal saga. It has a darkness which lies beyond most of our daily comprehensions, and a continuing influence and legacy that sees not only the genre, but also the fans, continue to be both fascinated and influenced by these true pioneers. Lars Ulrich, Metallica ...Whatever your opinion of Mayhem’s music (challenging, mystical and inspiring, traditional /classical), or the history of the band’s hierarchy of anachronistic, mythic archetypal members (a brotherhood, betrayal and tragedy, self-destruction, isolationist and populist, concurrent presence in the world), it is clear that the core and original aesthetics of Mayhem ultimately created an entirely new foundation and probably another total universe (musically, visually, ethically and even spiritually and existentially) for an entire generation of black metal musicians and artists, which continues strongly to this day. In that context I may compare them to a brutalist parallel of rock ’n’ roll’s MC5 for metal music. Stephen O’Malley, SUNN O))) This is the best book on the subject, makes other ones look fake. The Death Archives is true metal and by far the best book on this scene. Jonas Åkerlund, Director, Lords of Chaos Forget Lords of Chaos. Forget every half-assed “history of metal” book you’ve seen moldering on the bookshelf. There are a lot of great metal history books out there, but very few that do any justice at all to the always intriguing, often infuriating, and occasionally impenetrable global phenomenon that is black metal.

Melancology addresses the notorious musical genre black metal as a negative form of environmental writing that ‘blackens’ the cosmos. This book conjures a new word and concept that conjoins ‘black’ and ‘ecology’: melancology, a word in which can be heard the melancholy affect appropriate to the conjunction. Black metal resounds from the abyss and it is precisely only in relation to its sonic forces that the question of intervention in the environment arises in the articulation of melancology with ethics. That is, in deciding ‘which way out’ we should take, in deciding with what surpluses to dwell, with what waste, what detritus or decay in a process of unbinding with sonic forces that traverse an earth choking in wealth and death. The book thus provides a provocative and challenging contribution both to popular and intellectual debates on ecology.

Featuring interviews with members of the biggest bands in the genre, Sound of the Beast gives an overview of the past 30-plus years of heavy metal, delving into the personalities of those who created it. Everything is here, from the bootlegging beginnings of fans like Lars Ulrich (future founder of Metallica) to the sold-out stadiums and personal excesses of the biggest groups.
