Spanish Translation of 'Choosing Death' Book Due This Month

"Choosing Death: The Improbable History of Death Metal & Grindcore" will be available December 29 in a Spanish translation from Bazillion Points Publishing under the title "Eligiendo Muerte: La Improbable Historia Del Death Metal Y Grindcore". The 288-page book was translated by Carlos San Roman C., contributor to the Mexican edition of Rolling Stone magazine and former host of the metal radio show "El Cráneo". The book features an introduction by the late BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel and a foreword by former Terrorizer editor Nick Terry, both translated by Hugo Garcia, editor of Argentina's Jedbangers magazine.

Information in Spanish, a sample chapter, and pre-orders are available at this location.

The critically acclaimed book, written by Albert Mudrian and originally published in English by Feral House in late 2004, revisits key moments in the history of the grindcore and death metal genres. "Choosing Death" is also available in German, French, Polish and Finnish translations.

Commented Mudrian: "Honestly, 'Eligiendo Muerte' is the edition that I am personally most excited about. 'Choosing Death' has been translated into a few other languages and I am honored that that has happened, but to me the Spanish speaking metal audience is honestly the most enthusiastic and loyal out of any part of the metal scene. It's an honor, and I hope that everybody digs it."

"Choosing Death: The Original Soundtrack", the Relapse Records companion CD compilation to "Choosing Death" featuring classic tracks from CARCASS, CANNIBAL CORPSE, MORBID ANGEL, DEATH, AT THE GATES, and many more in addition to exclusive tracks from SUFFOCATION and PIG DESTROYER, is also available.
