"...Distancing ourselves from the "I 100 migliori dischi" editorial series, we thought that a hundred albums would not have been able to explore a style that is so rich with derivates, subgenres and mixtures..."

"...In these books you'll find the albums that most contributed to shape the genre..."

"...We can guarantee that we are as fans as our readers of Venom, Bathory or Celtic Frost, to mention the most obvious examples of proto-metal, but twenty-five years later we think that the idea that you make yourself of Black Metal really took shape with the second wave from Scandinavia... which started with Darkthrone's A Blaze in the Northern Sky..."

I shafted a few acts as they are associated with the nazi metal scene. You can find them listed in the table of contents from the books (featured in the pdf files above) if you're more tolerant than I am.
