    This novel gathers up the self-destructive hedonism of the modern world and drops it to freeze in an unyielding territory of winter landscapes and ancient lore. Black metal is a key element of this story, but you need not be an expert to appreciate the creeping menace of a foreign atmo...

    Misanthropy cursed with talent. From the smack-riddled alleyways of Shitcago, Peak takes the American black metal aesthetic and sends it, ill-prepared, into neo-pagan Eastern Europe; to ancient forests where tremolo guitar riffs and blast beats are hymnals to wormlust and perverted ...

    Though Corpsepaint begins with an appropriate Nietzsche reference, I finished David Peak?s book with a Cioran quote in mind, ?Music is everything. God himself is nothing more than an acoustic hallucination.? Cioran, his pessimistic philosophy heavily influenced by Nietzsch...

    Regulars here will be familiar with my affinity towards metal, and it's the blackest of metal on most occasions is what I can be found listening to. Yes, that abrasive, caustic stuff where singers shriek, garggle and howl into the microphone, guitars cut and scythe and drums blast you ...

    A work of true cosmic horror set in the death-tinged world of the black metal scene. The fading master Strigoi takes his desperate protege on a bender across Eastern Europe, ending at the Ukrainian compound of a pagan metal collective still adhering very old ways. Peak drags the reader...

    Corpsepaint is the new novel by David Peak. It tells the story of aging metal musician Max (aka Strigoi) being given the chance to record his next album on an exclusive compound owned by the Ukranian group Wisdom of Silenus. Max, having burned most of his bridges, hires an up and comin...

    The Black Metal genre of music is one that lends itself well to horror and weird fiction. With darkness, misanthropy, and supernatural malignancy being cornerstones of the genre, there is fertile ground to work with. David Peak's Corpsepaint tills that ground beautifully. Corpsepain...

    This copy arrived with a bookplate signed by David Peak and other goodies from the publisher. ...

    [3.5/5 stars] Corpsepaint is a black metal horror novel. If you're like me, that sentence alone is enough to make you pick it up, because it's a combination of two of my favorite things: black metal and horror novels. The writing style itself evokes feelings of the second-wave black...

    Corpsepaint validates what every parent whose kid listens to metal always feared . . . and then pushes it screaming over the edge. In perhaps the darkest fish-out-of-water story ever, American black metal legend - and unrepentant junkie - Strigoi (Max to his friends) and his untested n...

    I am a fan of other works by David Peak, heavy metal music, and philosophical horror. It was inevitable that I would get around to this book sooner rather than later. You could describe the story that unfolds here as related to a few others (The Ritual comes to mind), but that would...

    As soon as I heard about this book I knew I just had to read it. A Lovecraftian-esque supernatural horror novel about a black metal band? Shit, two of my favourite things in this fetid existence on a desolate planet of pain and suffering. Then I read the synopsis and I was salivating w...

    This was the trve kvlt. Real black metal vibes throughout the entire book. David Peak gets what black metal truly means and conveys it through this lightning fast fever nightmare of a tale. Nihilistic? Check. Outright hostile to the point of being anti-life? Check. Make no mistake, rea...

    David Peak is an amazing writer. Wow. I just wanted to get that out of the way. This horror novel is about two black metal musicians traveling to an isolated compound in Eastern Europe to meet with a reclusive band and create a new album. Max is a star in the genre, wanting to show eve...

    This is a brutal novel about black metal and cosmic horror that starts off serious as a funeral and never lights up. An infamous black metal band travels to the Ukraine wilderness to record an album with notorious cult act Wisdom of Silenius. Things go...awry, to say the least. I l...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, having been on a hunt lately for decent novels and fictions about underground and subcultural music scenes. Black metal is a fascinating subject in its own right, a music that's often ridiculous, sometimes terrifying and occasionally even quite beautifu...

    I found the astonishingly bleak ?Corpsepaint? the latest release from David Peake a totally riveting and lyrical read which had me glued to the page from beginning to end. I love truly literary novels which are loaded with this level of nihilism. I also dig plots which have a stron...

    As grimy and nihilistic as a novel set in the world of black metal ought to be, Corpsepaint is a journey into a miserable world filled with miserable people doing miserable things to one another. The cosmic horror/supernatural elements prevent it from being just another wallow in the g...

    A stunning, character-driven tale that keeps you turning pages. A slow burn of heavy metal and cosmic horror, wonderfully told. An untold tale of behind-the-scenes music industry and ancient, galactic monstrosities. ...

    A cosmic horror novel about black metal. First most important thing to not is Peak the author knows black metal so thumbs up there. This is a cool book, I am going to save most of my thoughts for a audio/video review That my Dickheads co-host Anthony Trevino and I are doing as we both ...

    Could not put it down. And not because Corpsepaint is the kind of novel usually referred to as a page-turner, some mystery/thriller bookstore serial. The momentum here is in the inherent suspense of uncoiling the events that loom foreboding down the dark path that Max and Roland have s...

    From my blurb on the back of this book: ?This book is brutal in the way only stoner metalheads can say the word. But it?s also brutal in the way only real lived human suffering is. Total, unending and strangely life affirming if you can manage to walk away from its wreckage in a...

    Corpsepaint is the new novel by David Peak. It tells the story of aging metal musician Max (aka Strigoi) being given the chance to record his next album on an exclusive compound owned by the Ukranian group Wisdom of Silenus. Max, having burned most of his bridges, hires an up and comin...

    [3.5/5 stars] Corpsepaint is a black metal horror novel. If you're like me, that sentence alone is enough to make you pick it up, because it's a combination of two of my favorite things: black metal and horror novels. The writing style itself evokes feelings of the second-wave black...

    Corpsepaint validates what every parent whose kid listens to metal always feared . . . and then pushes it screaming over the edge. In perhaps the darkest fish-out-of-water story ever, American black metal legend - and unrepentant junkie - Strigoi (Max to his friends) and his untested n...

    As soon as I heard about this book I knew I just had to read it. A Lovecraftian-esque supernatural horror novel about a black metal band? Shit, two of my favourite things in this fetid existence on a desolate planet of pain and suffering. Then I read the synopsis and I was salivating w...

    This was the trve kvlt. Real black metal vibes throughout the entire book. David Peak gets what black metal truly means and conveys it through this lightning fast fever nightmare of a tale. Nihilistic? Check. Outright hostile to the point of being anti-life? Check. Make no mistake, rea...

    David Peak is an amazing writer. Wow. I just wanted to get that out of the way. This horror novel is about two black metal musicians traveling to an isolated compound in Eastern Europe to meet with a reclusive band and create a new album. Max is a star in the genre, wanting to show eve...

    This is a brutal novel about black metal and cosmic horror that starts off serious as a funeral and never lights up. An infamous black metal band travels to the Ukraine wilderness to record an album with notorious cult act Wisdom of Silenius. Things go...awry, to say the least. I l...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, having been on a hunt lately for decent novels and fictions about underground and subcultural music scenes. Black metal is a fascinating subject in its own right, a music that's often ridiculous, sometimes terrifying and occasionally even quite beautifu...

    As grimy and nihilistic as a novel set in the world of black metal ought to be, Corpsepaint is a journey into a miserable world filled with miserable people doing miserable things to one another. The cosmic horror/supernatural elements prevent it from being just another wallow in the g...

    A stunning, character-driven tale that keeps you turning pages. A slow burn of heavy metal and cosmic horror, wonderfully told. An untold tale of behind-the-scenes music industry and ancient, galactic monstrosities. ...

    A cosmic horror novel about black metal. First most important thing to not is Peak the author knows black metal so thumbs up there. This is a cool book, I am going to save most of my thoughts for a audio/video review That my Dickheads co-host Anthony Trevino and I are doing as we both ...

    Could not put it down. And not because Corpsepaint is the kind of novel usually referred to as a page-turner, some mystery/thriller bookstore serial. The momentum here is in the inherent suspense of uncoiling the events that loom foreboding down the dark path that Max and Roland have s...

    From my blurb on the back of this book: ?This book is brutal in the way only stoner metalheads can say the word. But it?s also brutal in the way only real lived human suffering is. Total, unending and strangely life affirming if you can manage to walk away from its wreckage in a...

    This was the trve kvlt. Real black metal vibes throughout the entire book. David Peak gets what black metal truly means and conveys it through this lightning fast fever nightmare of a tale. Nihilistic? Check. Outright hostile to the point of being anti-life? Check. Make no mistake, rea...

    David Peak is an amazing writer. Wow. I just wanted to get that out of the way. This horror novel is about two black metal musicians traveling to an isolated compound in Eastern Europe to meet with a reclusive band and create a new album. Max is a star in the genre, wanting to show eve...

    This is a brutal novel about black metal and cosmic horror that starts off serious as a funeral and never lights up. An infamous black metal band travels to the Ukraine wilderness to record an album with notorious cult act Wisdom of Silenius. Things go...awry, to say the least. I l...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, having been on a hunt lately for decent novels and fictions about underground and subcultural music scenes. Black metal is a fascinating subject in its own right, a music that's often ridiculous, sometimes terrifying and occasionally even quite beautifu...

    This novel gathers up the self-destructive hedonism of the modern world and drops it to freeze in an unyielding territory of winter landscapes and ancient lore. Black metal is a key element of this story, but you need not be an expert to appreciate the creeping menace of a foreign atmo...

    Misanthropy cursed with talent. From the smack-riddled alleyways of Shitcago, Peak takes the American black metal aesthetic and sends it, ill-prepared, into neo-pagan Eastern Europe; to ancient forests where tremolo guitar riffs and blast beats are hymnals to wormlust and perverted ...

    Though Corpsepaint begins with an appropriate Nietzsche reference, I finished David Peak?s book with a Cioran quote in mind, ?Music is everything. God himself is nothing more than an acoustic hallucination.? Cioran, his pessimistic philosophy heavily influenced by Nietzsch...

    Regulars here will be familiar with my affinity towards metal, and it's the blackest of metal on most occasions is what I can be found listening to. Yes, that abrasive, caustic stuff where singers shriek, garggle and howl into the microphone, guitars cut and scythe and drums blast you ...

    A work of true cosmic horror set in the death-tinged world of the black metal scene. The fading master Strigoi takes his desperate protege on a bender across Eastern Europe, ending at the Ukrainian compound of a pagan metal collective still adhering very old ways. Peak drags the reader...

    Corpsepaint is the new novel by David Peak. It tells the story of aging metal musician Max (aka Strigoi) being given the chance to record his next album on an exclusive compound owned by the Ukranian group Wisdom of Silenus. Max, having burned most of his bridges, hires an up and comin...

    The Black Metal genre of music is one that lends itself well to horror and weird fiction. With darkness, misanthropy, and supernatural malignancy being cornerstones of the genre, there is fertile ground to work with. David Peak's Corpsepaint tills that ground beautifully. Corpsepain...

    [3.5/5 stars] Corpsepaint is a black metal horror novel. If you're like me, that sentence alone is enough to make you pick it up, because it's a combination of two of my favorite things: black metal and horror novels. The writing style itself evokes feelings of the second-wave black...

    Corpsepaint validates what every parent whose kid listens to metal always feared . . . and then pushes it screaming over the edge. In perhaps the darkest fish-out-of-water story ever, American black metal legend - and unrepentant junkie - Strigoi (Max to his friends) and his untested n...

    As grimy and nihilistic as a novel set in the world of black metal ought to be, Corpsepaint is a journey into a miserable world filled with miserable people doing miserable things to one another. The cosmic horror/supernatural elements prevent it from being just another wallow in the g...

    A stunning, character-driven tale that keeps you turning pages. A slow burn of heavy metal and cosmic horror, wonderfully told. An untold tale of behind-the-scenes music industry and ancient, galactic monstrosities. ...

    A cosmic horror novel about black metal. First most important thing to not is Peak the author knows black metal so thumbs up there. This is a cool book, I am going to save most of my thoughts for a audio/video review That my Dickheads co-host Anthony Trevino and I are doing as we both ...

    Could not put it down. And not because Corpsepaint is the kind of novel usually referred to as a page-turner, some mystery/thriller bookstore serial. The momentum here is in the inherent suspense of uncoiling the events that loom foreboding down the dark path that Max and Roland have s...

    The Black Metal genre of music is one that lends itself well to horror and weird fiction. With darkness, misanthropy, and supernatural malignancy being cornerstones of the genre, there is fertile ground to work with. David Peak's Corpsepaint tills that ground beautifully. Corpsepain...

    [3.5/5 stars] Corpsepaint is a black metal horror novel. If you're like me, that sentence alone is enough to make you pick it up, because it's a combination of two of my favorite things: black metal and horror novels. The writing style itself evokes feelings of the second-wave black...

    Corpsepaint validates what every parent whose kid listens to metal always feared . . . and then pushes it screaming over the edge. In perhaps the darkest fish-out-of-water story ever, American black metal legend - and unrepentant junkie - Strigoi (Max to his friends) and his untested n...

    I am a fan of other works by David Peak, heavy metal music, and philosophical horror. It was inevitable that I would get around to this book sooner rather than later. You could describe the story that unfolds here as related to a few others (The Ritual comes to mind), but that would...

    As soon as I heard about this book I knew I just had to read it. A Lovecraftian-esque supernatural horror novel about a black metal band? Shit, two of my favourite things in this fetid existence on a desolate planet of pain and suffering. Then I read the synopsis and I was salivating w...

    This was the trve kvlt. Real black metal vibes throughout the entire book. David Peak gets what black metal truly means and conveys it through this lightning fast fever nightmare of a tale. Nihilistic? Check. Outright hostile to the point of being anti-life? Check. Make no mistake, rea...

    David Peak is an amazing writer. Wow. I just wanted to get that out of the way. This horror novel is about two black metal musicians traveling to an isolated compound in Eastern Europe to meet with a reclusive band and create a new album. Max is a star in the genre, wanting to show eve...

    This novel gathers up the self-destructive hedonism of the modern world and drops it to freeze in an unyielding territory of winter landscapes and ancient lore. Black metal is a key element of this story, but you need not be an expert to appreciate the creeping menace of a foreign atmo...

    Misanthropy cursed with talent. From the smack-riddled alleyways of Shitcago, Peak takes the American black metal aesthetic and sends it, ill-prepared, into neo-pagan Eastern Europe; to ancient forests where tremolo guitar riffs and blast beats are hymnals to wormlust and perverted ...

    Though Corpsepaint begins with an appropriate Nietzsche reference, I finished David Peak?s book with a Cioran quote in mind, ?Music is everything. God himself is nothing more than an acoustic hallucination.? Cioran, his pessimistic philosophy heavily influenced by Nietzsch...

    Regulars here will be familiar with my affinity towards metal, and it's the blackest of metal on most occasions is what I can be found listening to. Yes, that abrasive, caustic stuff where singers shriek, garggle and howl into the microphone, guitars cut and scythe and drums blast you ...

    This is a brutal novel about black metal and cosmic horror that starts off serious as a funeral and never lights up. An infamous black metal band travels to the Ukraine wilderness to record an album with notorious cult act Wisdom of Silenius. Things go...awry, to say the least. I l...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, having been on a hunt lately for decent novels and fictions about underground and subcultural music scenes. Black metal is a fascinating subject in its own right, a music that's often ridiculous, sometimes terrifying and occasionally even quite beautifu...

    4.5? **Review coming soon!** ...

    Review to come. ...

    I found the astonishingly bleak ?Corpsepaint? the latest release from David Peake a totally riveting and lyrical read which had me glued to the page from beginning to end. I love truly literary novels which are loaded with this level of nihilism. I also dig plots which have a stron...

    ***this review originally appeared on The Ginger Nuts of Horror website*** For a subculture so frequently concerned with purity and with being ?true,? black metal sure does mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. For some, it is a spear in the side of the...

    As grimy and nihilistic as a novel set in the world of black metal ought to be, Corpsepaint is a journey into a miserable world filled with miserable people doing miserable things to one another. The cosmic horror/supernatural elements prevent it from being just another wallow in the g...

    A stunning, character-driven tale that keeps you turning pages. A slow burn of heavy metal and cosmic horror, wonderfully told. An untold tale of behind-the-scenes music industry and ancient, galactic monstrosities. ...

    A cosmic horror novel about black metal. First most important thing to not is Peak the author knows black metal so thumbs up there. This is a cool book, I am going to save most of my thoughts for a audio/video review That my Dickheads co-host Anthony Trevino and I are doing as we both ...

    Could not put it down. And not because Corpsepaint is the kind of novel usually referred to as a page-turner, some mystery/thriller bookstore serial. The momentum here is in the inherent suspense of uncoiling the events that loom foreboding down the dark path that Max and Roland have s...

    From my blurb on the back of this book: ?This book is brutal in the way only stoner metalheads can say the word. But it?s also brutal in the way only real lived human suffering is. Total, unending and strangely life affirming if you can manage to walk away from its wreckage in a...
