A really incisive and erudite exploration of Black Metal’s leftist contingents – essential reading for fans of extreme music and radical politics!
Tonight It’s a World We Bury is a radical re-writing of the history and politics of black metal music. Challenging the commonly-held perception that black metal is a genre of the right – full of wannabe Vikings, Nazis, skinheads and other unsavoury characters – Tonight It’s a World We Bury looks at an array of black metal artists to re-affirm the genre as radically anticapitalist, revolutionary and left-wing. Utilizing an eclectic range of black metal bands, including Darkthrone, Burzum, Liturgy and Deathspell Omega, and taking in the works of Marx, Nietzsche, Deleuze and more, Tonight It’s a World We Bury is a book on black metal like no other.
