“Underground Never Dies!” chronicles the underground metal explosion of the mid-1980s through early 1990s when a decentralized volunteer force created a parallel music industry for music that had no commercial appeal, but a fervent sense of truth and opposition to some aspects of post-modern civilization.
Book introduction done by Erik Danielsson from Watain.
Cover art by Mark Riddick accompanies articles by Ian Christe (Bazillion Points), Chris Reifert (Autopsy) and Alan Moses (Glorious Times).
An interview with Jon “Metalion” Kristiansen (Slayer Mag.) and Ronnie Eide(Morbid mag.) also featured special for this book.
With over 500 pages of interviews, photos, excerpts from period fanzines and artwork, “Underground Never Dies!” addresses the complex interweaving of bands, fans, zines, promoters, artists and labels that fostered the underground metal movement and allowed it to expand with maximum flexibility.
Book video presentation:
Written by GrinderMagazine Editor Andrés Padilla, the book includes fanzines from around the world as well as an extensive selection of underground flyers, so it will be not only a narrative of the history of underground metal, but also a massive and interesting menu of diverse viewpoints for devotees of underground metal genres such as death metal,blackmetal, grindcore and doommetal.
This celebration of the underground will attempt to make sense of the fertile but chaotic years of its origins.
