Book About Swedish Death Metal Scene Announced

A new book dealing with the Swedish Death Metal scene around 1990 called "Encyclopedia Of Svensk Dödsmetall" (Encyclopedia of Swedish Death Metal) is currently being printed and about to be released in the next couple of weeks, according to author Nicola Costantini. He began to work on this book in the end of 2005 and it deals with a wide range of known and unknown Swedísh death metal acts between 1988-1992. The book will feature plenty of interviews with important names of the scene from bands such as At The Gates, Bathory, and Vomitory. The book is professionally printed on 218 black and white A4 pages and captures the true oldschool fanzine-spirit with cut & paste layout and will sell for 40 €. For additional information check out the book's MySpace page.

The author writes on the MySpace in English - so I got the impression it would either be entirely in English or at least partially in English, but nothing outright says one way or the other.

There was another book called "Swedish Death Metal" by another author, and there was also a book that just came out this month called "True Norwegian Black Metal", although I'm told that one is mostly photography.
