Bit of a pipe-dream come true and I’m thrilled by this infernal fusion of my passions for metal and horror.
One of my horror stories – ‘Hippocampus’ – has been set to music by Roger Rovento of Xelyruth and included in ‘The Metal Chapters Volume II’ project – a collection of fiction + an accompanying album.
“Literature and metal music cross paths again, creating an imaginative market. Stories that were hidden in song lyrics are recorded on paper, while short stories by writers leave their mark on the pentagram.
Marios Dimitriadis and Giorgos Daitsios came in contact with ten well-known metal bands and, after consultation, wrote short stories based on them in lyrics of their favorite songs. Correspondingly, Relyer Rovento of Xelyruth contacted five famous authors and created Russian compositions based on their stories.
The book includes a total of fifteen short stories as well as the lyrics that accompany them, while on the insert CD there are the five compositions of Xelyruth.”
