5.0 étoiles sur 5 An essential document; an impressive value 6 juillet 2011
Par D. Read - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
If you are into the underground/extreme metal scene of the 80's through the early 2000's, this book is for you. This is a huge book. If you were to actually read every word in it, I'd have to conclude you were either insane or had a lot of time on your hands. Either way, hats off to you, because there is just so much content in this book. I wish I had the time, but I have no regrets from my purchase.

As you can read from the description and table of contents, the foundation of this book is a reprinting of the full contents of several years worth of a metal zine called Slayer Mag (no relation to the band). So for hundreds of pages, you get the full effect of old school cut and paste layout--band logos, photos, interviews, ads, reviews, everything you'd expect. Everything is very readable, owing to the large page size.

The list of bands the publisher mentions in the book's description barely scratches the surface of the bands covered in all the zine issues. I have to stop myself from trying to describe it all. Trust me, the bands are in here, from interviews to reviews to photos to drawings to ads (the ads are almost the best part). In addition to the zine reprints, there is a bunch of other written and photographic content that is well produced and attractive. Some great photos. A lot of written commentary. Hours and hours of browsing here. The Slayer Mag zine content is DIY all the way, in the best sense.

If nothing else, this book is an incredible value. The production quality is very high, from the cover, to the editing, to the layout, to the printing--everything. This publisher is doing essential work to document some important scenes, with some real investment and quality behind it. I was very impressed by this publisher's book on Hellhammer/Celtic Frost, which is also essential, and this new Metalion book tops it.

The Hellhammer book used high gloss pages, which was perfect for all the black photos and backgrounds in that book. This book uses a mixture of a nice non-glossy paper and a glossy paper for color photos. More or less, the zine reprints are non-glossy, and there are lots of sections that are glossy. This works just right for the zine reprints, and the non-glossy paper is very nice--thick, adding to the huge size of this book. The hardcover has a very nice matte finish, but the title on the cover and spine is an inset, embossed, red foil. Very nice.

For the record, I'm not affiliated with the publisher, authors, or bands in any way. Just a fan. I listen to publisher Ian Christie's show on the satellite. This book is the real deal, independently produced, not corporate, part of the scene, with no compromise on quality. Help this publisher sell out so they can keep doing more stuff like this.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 For every serious Extreme Metal Fan 2 août 2011
Par BR69 - Publié sur Amazon.com

I just received my copy of The Slayer Mag Diaries. This book is unbelievably huge! It's well
over 700 pages of various Death, Black, and Thrash Metal bands from the 80's - 2000, as well
as the earliest Heavy Metal bands, even I never heard of. Like the one reviewer stated, there is
no way anyone could read every word of this monster book in one sitting. You would need plenty
of time on your hands to do it. Even though I've never read Slayer Mag before, from what I've seen
so far, Metalion is a Metal God. This book is hard to put down, it's heavy, this is a Metal fan's
dream come true. All of my favorite bands are in here. Morbid Angel, Morbid, Mayhem, Immortal,
Darkthrone, U.S. Death/Black bands, Swedish, Norway, etc., they're all in this behemoth of a book.
I'm taking my time reading and looking at the rare photographs, believe me, you'll get your money's
out of this book. The best book on Extreme Metal period!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An epic monster 22 juillet 2011
Par A. Schneider - Publié sur Amazon.com

The first thing you should know about The Slayer Mag Diaries is that this thing is huge. We're talking about an over sized tome which includes 700+ pages of enlightening information about the bands that span the Slayer Mag's time period ('80s-'2000s). What better way to learn about the sickest bands in history than to read their own words: if you're into music you know the value of reading interviews. Yeah, you might be able to find all the same information online but how much of it is reliable? You owe it to yourself to read the artists own words and Slayer Mag was a historical masterpiece which illuminated the metal scene in this way.

You won't be able to put it down but you won't be able to read it cover to cover the first sitting either: this is one of those masterpieces you keep on your table for all your friends to check out for years to come.

I don't know about most of those purchasing the book but I'm a huge metal fan and I don't even own every edition of Slayer Mag. What you get with this book is every *single* edition, commentaries by hundreds of musicians, lots of insight past and present by John Kristiansen regarding the music at the time and dozens of other cool features. The truth is no review could ever do this book justice seeing as how to book encompasses so much history and insight: each magazine itself spans a great deal of interviews, reviews and commentaries... times that by 20 issues of Slayer, Forwards by Ian Christe, Chris Reifert, Tomas Lindberg (At The Gates, Disfear, Napalm Death to name a few), Fenriz, Stephen O'Malley, Erik Danielsson and Tara G. Warrior PLUS lots commentaries by Kristiansen and edits to the Slayer Mag to make them clearer.

Edits? You're thinking that this isn't the "authentic" Slayer Mag despite Jon's name on the cover right? Wrong. Each edition of the mag is in English discussing that particular edition in depth. With the advantage of foresight Kristiansen looks back at the issue, describes it and gives his own views on the issues discussed or the bands being mentioned or the concerts being discussed. Then what follows is the actual photo copies of the Slayer Mags in Norwegian! Want insights into the "Norway Incidents?" Church burnings or even the deaths of known musicians? Jon's commentaries during the course of the book and at the foreward help illuminate these issues as well.

"Lords of Chaos: The Bloody Rise of the Satanic Metal Underground" by Michael Moynihan? Really crap compared to the "real" story. I can't stress that enough. Fans of the underground have been discussing crappy works of literature in the genre for years. Bazillion Points really does do an excellent job at providing the world with a fresh outlook on a history so many fans love and hold dear.

At its core Metalion is essentially ANOTHER Bazillion Points classic: if you enjoyed "Swedish Death Metal" by Ekeroth (another tome of unparalleled quality) or "Sound of the Beast" by Ian Christe then pick this up today, it tops the two which is remarkable given the fact that SDM is amazing. BP is probably the best name in metal literature for a reason: each of their books enlightens the reader about the subject matter direct from those who helped shape the history (with the exception of Ian's own writing which is more of a general history but contains many insights). This release rivals the quality I found in "Mean Deviation: Four Decades of Progressive Heavy Metal" by Jeff Wagner, my favorite book to date. Metalion doesn't disappoint and puts itself right up there beside the greatest music bio books ever made.

If you're a fan of metal than do yourself a favor and pick up "Metalion: The Slayer Mag Diaries" by Jon Kristiansen today. You don't know the full history unless you learn it from the source and there's no better source than the Slayer Mags. It is truly disappointing that at this time - with months of being released - that only myself and another reviewer has submitted reviews of this epic. Check it out today!

This book is amazing!!! A canon of work that chronicles the birth of black metal told from a first person perspective.
Consider yourself false unless this book lies on your shelf.
