From Burzum's Varg Vikernes to more recent genre celebrities like Mikko Aspa, as well as a whole host of wannabe Vikings, Nazis, skinheads and other unsavoury characters, black metal's politics have thus far been defined as reactionary at best and fascist at worst.
In Tonight It's a World We Bury, Bill Peel uncovers the other side of black metal's politics. Extracting its radical potential as anticapitalist, revolutionary and left-wing, Peel shows how the genre's predilection for destruction and incomparable hostility to the world as we know it can be a weapon for the left, as well as the right.
Utilising an eclectic range of black metal bands, including Darkthrone, Burzum, Liturgy and Deathspell Omega, and taking in the works of Marx, Deleuze and more, Tonight It's a World We Bury is a book on black metal like no other.
