Tonight It’s a World We Bury
Black Metal, Red Politics
By Bill Peel
Tonight It’s a World We Bury explores a range of tendencies central to black metal and uncovers their potential as critiques of capitalism.
Tonight It's a World We Bury is a radical re-writing of the history and politics of black metal music.
Challenging the commonly-held perception that black metal is a genre of the right — full of wannabe Vikings, Nazis, skinheads and other unsavoury characters — Tonight It's a World We Bury looks at an array of black metal artists to re-affirm the genre as radically anticapitalist, revolutionary and left-wing.
Utilizing an eclectic range of black metal bands, including Darkthrone, Burzum, Liturgy and Deathspell Omega, and taking in the works of Marx, Nietzsche, Deleuze and more, Tonight It's a World We Bury is a book on black metal like no other.
