Zemial To Appear In "Black Metal (R)evolution" Book

Vocalist Vorskaath of Greece metal act Zemial has issued the following update about making an appearance in an upcoming book about black metal:

"I was recently honoured with an in invitation to contribute to the upcoming book: Black Metal (R)evolution. As Black Metal courses through its third decade of existence, the music and ideals behind this social phenomenon have become subject to review and investigation: 'Spawned by Venom, channelled by Bathory and proselytized with equal degrees of worship, obsession and homage by Euronymous of Mayhem, there is an ordered evolution that Black Metal has undertaken since the opus that bears its namesake was vomited forth in 1982.

"'Black Metal is not simply a musical style; it is a cult, a religion, a malignant manifestation with one unifying theme - its exponents are all acolytes of those conjurations which preceded their own. Be that the chaotic rampage of Venom, the morbid primitivism of Hellhammer, the esoteria of Burzum, or the ritual of Von, Black Metal's present, just like its future, pays tribute to its past. And while the noise may diverge from one band to another, and the philosophy may bear factional witness, the past will always reflect on the present. The purpose of this book is to invite artists to discuss the virtue of their most revered BM albums. The most engaging offerings will be featured in the book along with in-depth interviews with some of the instigators of the first wave of BM, where we will explore their points of view on those long influential records.'

"The book is scheduled to be released in late 2010 and features submissions by many of Black Metal’s most distinguished bands and personalities past and present; from the first and second waves of the movement..... Feel free to visit the websites.

"A short update on NYKTA: I have been working closely with a label in taking care of all aspects of the production of the new album and we are at the paperwork stage. The official release date and related information will be announced soon."
