From Hades to Valhalla… Bathory – The Epic Story, the unofficial but definitive biography of one of the Swedish black metal band written by José Luis Cano Barron, is due for publication in English on 29th May through Pagan Records and Monomaniax.

This comprehensive tome delves into the band’s career, offering an uncensored and carefully researched account of its groundbreaking music and enduring legacy.

Originally published in Spanish, From Hades to Valhalla… Bathory – The Epic Story has been translated into English to make this essential work accessible to a wider audience. With 156 pages packed with rare photographs, illustrations, and reproductions, the book chronicles Bathory‘s journey from their early black metal roots to their Viking metal heydays, painting a vivid portrait of a band that helped shaped the sound of black and extreme metal.

Going beyond being a mere biography, the book offers a deep analysis of Bathory‘s music and its impact on the metal scene. Cano Barron drew upon his extensive knowledge and insider access to provide insights into Bathory‘s enigmatic leader, Quorthon.
