'Glorious Times: A Pictorial Of The Death Metal Scene 1984-1991' Revised Edition Due This Month

November 18, 2010

Former metal fanzine editors Alan Moses (Buttface 'zine) and Brian Pattison (Chainsaw Abortions 'zine) will release a revised and extended edition of their book "Glorious Times: A Pictorial Of The Death Metal Scene 1984-1991" at the end of November. The 160-page book showcases rare (many never-before-seen) pictures from the death metal scene (1984-1991) and instead of narration by an outside author, the stories contained in the book come from the bands and 'zine editors of the period.

Commented the authors: "We refused to conform to the publishers who wanted every bands stories (written in THEIR words) rewritten by a third party. We refused to take out our rare pics and insert promo lineup shots as the publishers wanted. Instead we sought out other photographers from the old days and found even more never before seen pictures. At the same time we also sought out a few more bands to make this version even better. We now have added 11 bands with stories from such legends as Ron Sumers (SLAUGHTER),Scott Peterson (CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER),Eric Meyer and Jim Durkin (DARK ANGEL),Joe Caper (RIGHTEOUS PIGS),Brian Lehfeldt and Shann Mortimer (WEHRMACHT),Ross Dolan (IMMOLATION) and also Rob Urbinati and Scott Watts (SACRIFICE),among others. Included, too, are pictures from the personal collections of Ron Sumbers, Scott Peterson, Brian Lehfeldt, Ross Dolan and a bunch of others.

"In additon to the new bands every old layout has been redone using industry standard software and formats so this time there are no skewed pics, no typos, etc. Many of the original layouts that were redone also include additional never-before-seen pictures. The HELLWITCH section also includes a new story from Jim Nickles and the UNSEEN TERROR section includes a new story from Mick Harris.
