Metal Depot is pleased to reveal the premiere dates of the graphic novel "Emissary Of The Anunnaki:
The Tale of the Fire King".
This epic story blends Sumerian mythology with the real story of the pioneers of Sumerian thrashing black metallers Melechesh. Based on an interview with the founder of the band – Ashmedi, the story is half-real and half-magical. Some episodes have happened during the real tours, and the fans might even remember them.
After two years of production, the 128-pages of epic is ready to hit the international comic book scene.
The Russian version of the graphic novel will be released during Moscow International Book Fair, taking place on 5-9 of September, 2018.
On this occasion, Metal Depot offers a special deal to metalheads (and not only!) on September 7-8th!

Satanism, crime, violence, and suicides: a new book tells the untold story of Finnish black metal, to be released by Svart Records
The Devil's Cradle: The Story of Finnish Black Metal is the definitive history of one of the most uncompromising music scenes in the world: Finnish black metal. Based on over 50 interviews conducted by Helsinki-based journalist Tero Ikäheimonen between 2014 and 2017, the book unravels the story of Finnish black metal from the late 1980s to modern times.
"Countless of books have been written about black metal over the years, but every time, the Finnish scene has remained merely a side note," says Ikäheimonen. "It's an atrocity, since Finland has created some of the world's most renown underground black metal since the beginning; I wanted to fix that. This book is made for the maniacs all over the world."
To be released by Svart Publishing on November 1st, The Devil's Cradle features such bands as Beherit, Impaled Nazarene, Barathrum, Archgoat, Azazel, Diaboli, Darkwoods My Betrothed, Horna, Vornat, Thy Serpent, Wanderer, Urn, Black Dawn, …And Oceans, Musta Surma, Alghazanth, Azaghal, Warloghe, Behexen, Clandestine Blaze, Satanic Warmaster, Ride for Revenge, Goatmoon, IC Rex, Charnel Winds, Cosmic Church, Saturnian Mist, Rienaus, and Abyssion among others.
"It was important for me to base the book on the experiences of true underground spirits - black metal musicians, zine authors, and tape traders," Ikäheimonen says. "Many stories are told for the first time. I wanted to focus on the music, but not forget the darker side of black metal - all the violence, death, and destruction that have ravaged the Finnish scene. It was crucial to include the spiritual and psychological side of black metal, too. Satanism with all its different notions and the occult are present throughout the book."
The Devil's Cradle was first published in Finnish in September 2016 by Svart Publishing (titled Pirunkehto). The English translation features all the original content and two additional chapters. This edition will encompass 500+ pages and be presented in a hard cover. Chapter excerpts will be periodically revealed HERE.
