Svartmalmur (BOOK)

Svartmalmur, Ditto’s latest publication, is a portrait of the Icelandic Black Metal scene by photographer Verði ljós, the alter-ego of Wormlust musician Hafsteinn Viðar Ársælsson. Iceland, despite its geographic isolation, has seen an extraordinary flourishing of the Black Metal scene in the last twenty years. Born as a reaction to the extreme reality of country beyond its fairy tale appearance, this genre has gained worldwide recognition and a key position in the Heavy Metal scene. Today, Iceland is home to renowned Black Metal record labels, festivals (such as Oration and Eistnaflug), as well as internationally acclaimed bands.

Svartmalmur features images of bands Abominor, Auðn, Carpe Noctem, Draugsól, Mannveira, Misþyrming, Naðra, Norn, Nornahetta, Núll, Nyiþ, Sinmara, Svartidauði and Wormlust as well as a selection of lyrics.

The photographs in this publication have been taken over three years. Seamlessly blending documentary and fiction, Svartmalmur offers a unique insight into this apparently impenetrable world.
