it was amazing

This isn't just a book on some part of music history as it contains loads of other materials, influences on the Norwegian Black Metal scene and some really strange stuff. However I think this is exactly the strenght of this book as it has brought together a lot of different things and encourages further reading on certain subjects. Some GR critizised that Moynihan doesn't comment critically on the stuff that went on in 1990s Norway or on the interviews. I agree that discrete thinking and critical assessing of the book's content is definitely required of the READER as it isn't ready-made by the author, but I cannot see how this is such a bad thing.
