Slayer Magazine: The Return

SLAYER MAG was founded in 1985 in Sarpsborg, Norway, and quickly rose to underground prominence by championing unsigned death metal pioneers, printing the earliest interviews with MORBID ANGEL, MEFISTO, SEPULTURA, NIHILIST, AUTOPSY, BATHORY, TERRORIZER, NECROVORE, DEATH, and especially local Norwegian act MAYHEM. The pages of SLAYER MAG became a written gospel for the fledgling global extreme metal underground, combining eye-ripping graphics, brutally honest writing, and a relentless and sick sense of humor.
Jon "Metalion" Kristiansen and Bazillion Points books are proud to announce that work has begun on a compendium of the best material representing twenty-five years of outrage from Metalion's infamous SLAYER MAG.
The book will include unreleased and exclusive interviews and artwork, historical photographs from Metalion's personal archive, and never-before-seen portrait photography taken by Metalion himself during the 2000s. The epic METALION: THE SLAYER DIARIES will be available through Bazillion Points books in late 2009/early 2010.
