Of course, to be more precise :

300 SEK for Sweden
50 Euro in Europe
55 Euro outside Europe. I guess it would give you something around 70 Dollars.

More info about ordering is available on the myspace link. Check it.

Thats one sexy line up for the release party. Though there are inevitable people under 30 who are die hard old school death fans that are gutted that they won't be allowed in fo no good reason.

Indeed, and not every 30 year old, only on invitation and stuff. Of the whole "revival" spirit I have never thought of a Nirvana 2002 reunion ! Must be great.

Hopefully I live far enough to not regret being a 1987 born.

I think it is in English, one won't advertise it worldwide if it wasn't. And some shown parts of the interviews from the book I read were in english. (check their myspace!!)

Am I the only one noticing the horrible cover? I mean, yes, Swedish death metal rules (we simply know how to do it good), but that is one horrifying cover. I know, it's the image, blah, blah, but they could at least have given it some class. =P

Unfortunately 70 dollars sounds a bit too expensive for a Yank like me.

Yes it's in english. And now, have you read it ? What do you think of it ?
A friend lend me his own, and I found it interesting, even if the author's appreciation of bands is a little black/white only sometimes... And I also liked the 100+ pages listing and commentaries on ALL (well, really closely) death bands from Sweden.

And about the release party, it must have been one hell of a drunken mess !
