Choosing Death: The Improbable History of Death Metal and Grindcore traces the roots of death metal and grindcore to their more current forms, touching on many of the issues that helped shape the music over the years. Included are the infamous Florida Death Metal scene, with bands such as Obituary, Death and Morbid Angle, the Grindcore bands of England including Carcass and Godflesh and the Death Metal hot bed of Sweden with bands such as Nihilist and Carnage and Polish Death Metalers Vader. The book does a fairly decent job of documenting the history of the music and the scene, its rise to prominence and current state. The text is supplemented with many rare and interesting photographs. Anyone with an interest in this music will find the book one of the top reads on the subject.
