Glorious Times - A pictorial of The Death Metal Scene (1981-1991)

Additional details (below) from

This 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.

When I originally came across this post I thought that was a video on Lenny Love. I recently came across the book at Kim's Underground. It looked interesting.
