Iím not sure if this has come up before but it would be great if DLA/ Deathmetal.org ever publishes a book. All that really needs to be included are a few chapters on composition, genre-developments and the underlying philosophy as outlined on the site. The rest could be made up of reviews and therefore function partly as a reference book. It would certainly make for interesting reading (even to non-metal audiences) and be the first of its kind among other books about metal. Milking the fanatical love/hate reputation of ANUS could make it a best-seller.

There was something called "The Portable ANUS" that was something similar to what you mention.  It is mostly the philosophic interviews/articles of ANUS but it would be nice to have something similar for the album reviews.

This is planned for the future.

We've had a few setbacks: work on the other site, transition to the new site, flakeouts by staff and volunteers, etc.

Definetely. Would be great if a collection of writings could be published.

To this day, Lords of Chaos is still one of the best books out there on the topic of metal as art/ideology. Unfortunately it's presented in the style of a tabloid newspaper which does it more of disservice than anything. The Celtic Frost biography, Only Death is Real, is ok but like most books about metal it is more for fans that worship idols.
