Nicola Costantini, editor of the great ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SVENSK DÖDSMETALL, has been very busy working on a worthy follow-up release. Here’s some quotes of a blog he just posted: "What I’m proudly announcing here, is a new edition of the Svensk Encyclopedia. This will be by no means a reissue, but something really new. So beware, I’m returning with a new massive book! This will have 50% of the old material and 50% new for a whole package of more or less 400 A4 pages. Every single old article has been re-arranged in a different way and enriched with a different approach, with more in-depth details, different artwork and so on." Among others, the most relevant new features include new interviews with DISSECTION’s Peter Palmdahl (about the early days with Jon since kindergarten to the very first days of DISSECTION), DISMEMBER’s David Blomqvist (prepare to see tons of photos of the very first days of DISMEMBER: first gig, first time in Sunlight, days with the NIHILIST guys), Jens Näsström (regarding the "Projections Of A Stained Mind" history), a list of all MORBID bootlegs (courtesy of Joakim Westerlund), Johan ‘Liiva’ Axelsson (in depth on FURBOWL, DEVOURMENT and more amazing details about CARNAGE), Anders Nyström (a very very long interview about KATATONIA’s early days when they were still called MELANCHOLIUM), Martin Larsson (about HOUSE OF USHER), Jocke ‘Grave’ Göthberg (on DARKIFIED, GRIMORIUM), Orvar Säfström (on NIRVANA 2002 and more details about his time in ENTOMBED), Janne Rudberg (on EXHUMED, MORPHEUS and MASTICATION), David Isberg aka ‘Unholy Emperor’ tells the story of his metal affair with Christoffer Johnsson in PROCREATION and OPETH, Sandro Cajander (on MEFISTO), Patrik Jensen (recalling his first attempts in SÉANCE, ORCHRISTE and SATANIC SLAUGHTER) and Willy Wilhelmsson (on RABBITS CARROT). Nicola has covered all the bands from Eskilstuna (MACRODEX, CHRONIC DECAY, DEATH RIPPER, ASMODEUS) and the Mjölby-Motala-Linköping area (SALVATION, BELSEBUB, LUCIFER, NEFARIOUS, FUNERAL FEAST) as well as many other new chats with CEMETARY, GODDEFIED, CABAL, LUCIFER, ABSURD, SARCASM, ABHOTH, EMBALMED, MEGA SLAUGHTER, EXCRETION, MACRODEX, INTERNAL DECAY, SACRETOMIA, ALTAR, INCARDINE, SUFFER, CEMETARY, UNCANNY, DECAMERON, RUNEMAGICK-MASTICATOR, MACABRE END, VIRGIN SIN, BRAINDEAD, DION FORTUNE, MALFEITOR, DEAD END, ATROCITY, SCYPOZOA, NOCTURNAL RITES, MIDAS TOUCH… and more to come. The new edition will also have different artwork, courtesy of Daniel Desecrator from Chile and the title will probably be "Encyclopedia Of Svensk DödsMetall… The Return", unless someone comes up with a better idea. It’ll probably be printed in a very small amount of copies only (300 or something), so you better reserve yourself a copy! No release date has been set as of yet, but expect something for the end of this year or within the first months of 2011. We’ll keep you posted!
