Bazillion Points Books and editor Jon “Metalion” Kristiansen proudly announce the May 2014 release of a limited red hardcover 84pp reprint of the infamous SLAYER MAG X, the crucial tenth issue of the legendary Norwegian metal fanzine Slayer Mag. Kristiansen, has been deemed “the godfather of Norwegian black metal” by Enslaved, and Mayhem‘s debut ‘Deathcrush’ is dedicated to him. His essential interviews here are basically unguarded conversations among friends, the most complete and unfiltered document available for understanding the mindset and personalities involved in Norway’s violent attacks, murders, and church arsons during the early 1990s.
