Three years in the making—and over one month of pre-ordering later—copies of USBM: A Revolution of Identity in American Black Metal are finally in stock! We’ll start shipping these 544-page hardcover monsters over the next several weeks, but please be patient, as the book’s pre-order has been the largest for any product that we’ve published in our 16-year history!
In an effort to quench your USBM thirst (or perhaps stoke your mania), today we’re sharing our second and final book excerpt, this time focusing on the early days of American black metal cult legends Profanatica . That, of course, is just a drop in the bloody ocean of USBM’s deep, dark history. For the rest of the story, you know what to do.
