The Metal Insight Podcast #31
PODCAST: Dayal Patterson's journey through Black MetalThe past is a scribe!
Many of us grew up with ‘Lords Of Chaos’ – the go-to book on Black Metal.
But that was a long time ago. And cool as it was, it didn’t even really go into the actual music.
This was something that Terrorizer and Metal Hammer writer Dayal Patterson sought to put right.
Over the last seven odd years, he’s now written a clutch of books that document exhaustively and excitingly the musicians and eccentricities that go into making this most special artform.
He’s written at incredible length – over half a million words now, by his own reckoning – having interviewed hundreds of the personalities, both key and obscure, about what went into their records.
They’ve opened up to him in a way that they haven’t to others. Proof of the purity of his effort.
The result have been a rake of essential books on the genre.
So take some time out to listen to this podcast with MI and Dayal, where we chew over exactly what makes these musicians the people they are.
And of course, get the books. You can find them at cultneverdies.myshopify.com.
