The names in this book are invisible tokens to be uttered aloud, each conjuring a group of humans formed to play rock in its extreme forms — with the greatest impact of sound, in which the floorboards shake and walls quiver, and ears split and leak blood; or of sight, with faces painted, hair-preened bird-like, horse-like, arms and belts packed with stone and metal, skin stained life-long with arcane or vulgar signs; or of speech, wherein is screamed and growled what woman and man alike shun to speak of: death, abuse, horror, evil, hate, and the ever-yawning black maw.

 — Dan Nelson, All Known Metal Bands
