Lord of the Logos

Fans of underground black metal music call Christophe Szpajdel the Lord of the Logos. Through his use of unusual aesthetic influences, Szpajdel has brought a new dynamic into the gothic visuality of heavy metal. He has not only succeeded in leaving his own visual mark on this music, but has expanded the canon of forms it uses. The book is done in the style of a black prayerbook, an appropriate choice for an artist whose fans in the black metal community worship him as the Lord of the Logos.
