GLORIOUS TIMES: A Pictorial of the Death Metal Scene (1984-1991)
2009·Buffalo, New York
by Moses, Alan and Brian Pattison
Buffalo, New York: Glorious Times Publishing, 2009. Paperback. Fine. Introduction by Laurent Ramadier. Features hundreds of photographs, most in color. [Buffalo, New York]: Glorious Times Publishing, 2009. Revised and expanded edition. Derived from thrash and early black metal, death metal is brutal and extreme by design, intended to shatter windows and make ears bleed. Pioneering groups like Death, Morbid Angel, Deicide, Obituary, and Cannibal Corpse played savage and lyrically graphic music that abounded with frantic double bass, buzzing guitar distortion, rapidly thumping drums, and guttural, largely unintelligible Cookie Monster vocals. Filled with many rare and previously unpublished photographs, this fantastic pictorial history captures intimate glimpses of the early days of the death metal scene in Tampa, Florida and elsewhere through anecdotal profiles of 48 bands that defined the movement. Laid in is a holographic letter (1992) from Moses concerning Covenant of Death, the Morbid Angel fan club he organized, as well as a membership form and a merchandise sheet. Quarto. Original glossy paper wrappers. Just a hint of edgewear; else fine. (Inventory #: 64318)
