The material anthologized in METALION: The Slayer Mag Diaries is presented here in its complete, original form. Jon “Metalion” Kristiansen, deemed to be “the godfather of Norwegian black metal” by Enslaved, created this deep and passionate record of the intertwined sensational actions, rivalries, violence, and totally new and unique underground black metal music.
The interviews, basically unguarded conversations among friends, today comprise the most complete and unfiltered document for understanding the mindset and personalities involved in Norway’s violent attacks, murders, and church arsons happening at the time.
