This may be old news to Europeans, but a friend of mine just got back from Sweden and brought me a copy of Swedish Death Metal the book. Fucking great book! Totally exhaustive historyof the scene with great anecdotes, photos and flyers. Glossy pages and nice print... they did a great job. It goes right up the present and has interviews with Repugnant and others and has a monstrous index of Swedish DM bands with discographies. Highly recommended! Just thought I'd spread the word in case any Swedish DM nuts havent heard about this book for some reason.

The book is fucking amazing, and well worth the asking price. If the price seems steep, it's mostly because Swedish postage prices are a BITCH. The book is heavy as hell, printed on great quality paper, etc etc... Highly recommended!

As I have mentioned on other forums- it's the best music related book I have ever read. Attention to detail is awesome (there's even a list of what zines were out in the back), loads of great stories and full of photos and pictures of old flyers. Definately worth buying.

Sure it costs a lot- but I'm sure everyone is prepared to pay more than that for a record now and again.

I agree, this book is mandatory. After the shitty/utterly disappointing Choosing Death, it's good to have a great detailed book about death metal written by someone who lived that shit first hand. Thumbs up, and worth every cent.

I posted this in a different forum, but might be of interest to others:

1) German Autopsy Stench records is selling it for 37 Euros. http://www.autopsy-stench.de/
2) Swedish Repulsive record shop is selling it in their shop in Stockholm and you can look for a copy on their webpage for 300 kr: http://www.repulsive.se/Repulsive/sidor/swedish_death_metal.HTM

3) the following Swedish online bookshops have it:
http://www.adlibris.com/se/product.aspx?isbn=919743342X&r=1 270kr
http://www.bokus.com/b/9789197433426.html 250kr
http://www.akademibokhandeln.se/db/caweb/cc_artikel.visa_artikelkort?cartikel_id=8017107 400kr, the most expensive bookseller, so buy there only if you really need all support you can get.
=> if you have a credit card, write these bookstores/bookcompanies a polite English mail, ask them how you can pay for it, and what the postage is to Australia. They are usually more than willing to help


but be aware to add some more bucks for postage costs for all options given, as the book is fukkin heavy !!!

EDIT: 300 Swedish kr are around 33 Euros.

Definitely good reading! Got mine a few days ago and just started really reading it last night. Bought it direct from Daniel. I think his email add is tamarapress@gmail.com.

Very heavy book is the word but well worth its price in weight Wink

I was in Sweden a month or so ago and saw this at a record store in Stockholm (I had no idea it existed). Needless to say I was blown away. its great! I think I paid something like 30 bucks for it there.
