Book publisher Feral House have always had a love for extremely extreme and, often, controversial topics. In addition to publishing the first edition of Decibel Editor-in-Chief Albert Mudrian’s Choosing Death: The Improbable History of Death Metal and Grindcore, they’ve published tomes on Aleister Crowley, hardcore, hair metal, mental illness and just about anything else that could fall under the banners of “controversial” or “forbidden.”
That said, their latest title is called Black Metal: A Coloring Book. The pages are filled with black metal-inspired art from a variety of artists who have worked on album covers, been published in prestigious publications like The New York Times and more. Each design in the coloring book was inspired by black metal, and many include artist statements explaining exactly how they relate. While it won’t be for every black metal fan, the drawings are of a high quality and it’s interesting to see how artists who have had their work featured by massive bands and publications were inspired by the genre. Besides, what self-respecting black metal fan doesn’t want to color in the flames on a burning church?
