Amusing comment section is always good too. Looking forward the English version.

Don't know in what length my comments has been used in book, but what I know, there wasn't many people interviewed. This puts me into curious position, even if my role was more of "external observer" while mr. Möbus offered more of "internal observer" view? Of course in this size book, interviews are only minor detail. I think interview was made already back in 2012. Time goes fast.

here the book trailer for the english edition

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZH3aFwXVV0

"Towards the end of the nineties, black metal – by then one of the most feared musical genres ever, that had already made a name for itself thanks to a bloody streak of homicides and various acts of arson and violence – merged its sonic belligerence with National Socialist beliefs and the ideology of white power groups, breeding a new counterculture that’s incendiary and ferocious like no other. A formula of intransigent extremism like never before in contemporary music, a world where this mixture of aural excess and loyalty to the “mythos of the blood” gave birth to hundreds of new bands and gathered thousands of disciples from all over the globe: Russia, United States, Germany, France, Poland, Australia, Italy, Scandinavia and even South America.
From the defining fathers of the genre (Absurd, Graveland, Der Stürmer, Spear of Longinus) to its more unknown and dangerous representatives, Wolves Among Sheep delves deep into this black abyss to bring forth the history and development of NSBM – National Socialist Black Metal, an underground phenomenon that transcended music to become a doctrine in its own right, a nefarious call to arms for those dissident youths who declared war to society as we know it."

576 pages - English language - out September 2015

My assumption would be that German version would be with less intense graphics?
Book is highly impressive. Just started to read it. Now that I read my own contributions, some years later it seems perhaps language and repetition could have been less intense, hah..

getting my copy of the limited version hopefully next week
I wonder how much was it updated since the Italian version.

the few interviews present are quite interesting indeed I must admit, at least the most in depth ones.

Most probably it will. In Italy we can almost get away with murder when it comes to stuff like this, but Germany is a totally different story.

The English edition has a few updates, some little things have been added or updated, plus there's a brand new foreword by Michael Moynihan.

Anyway, in my own personal opinion, while undoubtedly interesting, the full-length interviews are not the most essential part of the book. The real 'juice', so to speak, is in the actual chapters, in the bulk of the book itself. The interviews are a big plus, an interesting addition, but the core lies somewhere else.


(Mikko, if you can, could you update the title of this thread to "WOLVES AMONG SHEEP - book on NSBM"? Thank you)

Cant say im impressed by it, a bit like Lords of Chaos part 2 with even worse bands. Maybe interesting to an outsider of NSBM.

Misspelling band names is however pretty inexcusable when writing a book on them.

Which is exactly the intended audience for the book.
An expert/insider of the NSBM scene probably wouldn't need a book like this, if not for having a thorough history of the phenomenon in one single place, with a good layout to boot. But how many experts and/or insiders of the scene are actually out there?
What many don't seem to consider about books, is that they're mainly addressed to people who don't know things, and want to learn more about them.

And you're right about that, but you have to keep things in perspective. Capricornus is misspelled Capricorn in two instances out of the dozens he's mentioned in the whole book, so it's safe to say it's a simple typo, an honest mistake. Like anyone who has ever worked with books can tell you, things like that can happen (especially when translators come into play)... and we're still talking about a nearly 600 pages book, so LOTS of words to check! Some may slip by accident.

It's far more serious when the same things happen in the tracklist of a compilation, or in the spine of a CD. Once again: it's a nearly 600 pages book!!

Anyway, the mistakes are there and there's no hiding this fact, just apologize for the inconvenience. The "funny" thing is that in the original Italian edition there are no such mistakes.

i confirm this analysis. I'm not an insider and I never had special interest in this aspect of black metal. But a book like this gave me the opportunity to analyze this scene with curiosity.

Book was in my mailbox today. Will start to read during the night shift today. First look is promising. A bit like the "Lords of Chaos" of NSBM, isn´t it ?
