Dead Norwegians, Israeli Disco and Satan's Penis: The Pulp Reality of the Metal Underground

Ian Christe, Alternative Press, 1995

"If you go into an ordinary school, you will surely see half of them wearing Morbid Angel, Autopsy, and Entombed shirts, and once again I will vomit! Death Black Metal is something all ordinary mortals should fear, not make into a trend!"
