EVE OF DARKNESS: Toronto Heavy Metal 1980-1989
*** Not Our Book! Another exquisite edition from our likeminded maniacs at UXB Press Canada. Available in limited supply in the U.S. while supplies last. Each book lovingly shrink-wrapped by real Canadians to preserve the mayhem inside! ***
EVE OF DARKNESS delivers the real story behind heavy metal’s most critical decade in Canada’s biggest city from the people who lived it. Featuring the commercially well-known (Anvil, Lee Aaron, Killer Dwarfs), influential legends (Sacrifice, Razor, Slaughter), countless forgotten obscurities and unknown ragers, plus the venues, fanzines, labels… it’s all here in serious detail. Packed with mountains of unearthed flyers and unseen photos, and extensive text drawn from over one hundred interviews, EVE OF DARKNESS is a true labor of love with over 300 beautifully printed, large format pages.
An essential grip for anyone interested in metal, underground music, subculture, and Toronto’s unwritten history!
