As innovative as it was horrific, Norway’s contribution to the underground metal scene in the late ’80s and early ’90s left classic albums, charred churches, and real corpses. While these sadistic Scandinavian stories have been told many times in documentaries and online blogs, Tales From the Black Circle is the first of its kind to tackle these tales in ghastly graphic fashion.
Paying homage to EC’s landmark line of horror comics, Tales From the Black Circle contains three tales of true-life terror, all torn out of the pages of Norwegian Black Metal history. Rigorously researched using both primary and secondary sources (roughly 50% of written material is based upon direct quotes from individuals and interviews conducted for research purposes), these stories of frightful non-fiction will educate as well as entertain the reader who has an interest in black metal, EC horror, music history, crime, and comic books.
Written by Daily Dead’s Sam Hart (KEXP, Beatdust.com) and beautifully drawn by Trevor “Morbid” Markwart, Tales From the Black Circle takes meticulous care in recreating the nostalgia of yesteryear print media, complete with a parody of the shameless comic book ads that rummaged the pocket money of countless children across the country, all with a black metal twist!
