Decibel Books Announces USBM: A Revolution of Identity in American Black Metal!

Decibel Books Announces USBM: A Revolution of Identity in American Black Metal! Pre-Orders Available NOW!

USBM is an important and truly revealing adventure into U.S. black metal's inner-workings, for better or worse.” —Invisible Oranges Over three years in the making, Decibel Books is proud to finally announce the publication of USBM: A Revolution of Identity in American Black Metal. In parallel with the blazing European scene of the 1990s, the American wasteland birthed its own wayward souls who found their own uses for blast beats, tremolo picking, ghoulish shrieks and satanic leanings. Over the span of 30 years, Americans have clung to black metal’s core tenets and cast them off in equal measure, always in search of a sound that could give voice to our uniquely predatory demons. This new 544-page hardcover book chronicles the stateside movement via first-hand accounts from genre progenitors VonProfanatica and Absu through revolutionary acts like LeviathanWeakling and Xasthur to present day progressives PanopticonDeafheaven and Wolves in the Throne Room along with dozens more black metal musicians. Including hundreds of rare and never-before-seen photos and a special foreword from extreme metal godfather Tom Gabriel Warrior (Hellhammer/Celtic Frost), USBM is a thorough and definitive tome from longtime Decibel contributor Daniel Lake and is available for pre-order exclusively through Decibel NOW
