Riffs and ritual – Iceland’s black metal bands photographed

Photographer Verði ljós has documented Iceland’s burgeoning black metal scene in all its glory for Ditto’s newest book Svartmálmur.

Through a series of portraits, live performance shots and impromptu moments, Ijós has captured the “veils, blood and ritualistic ephemera” that’s the day-to-day lives of the country’s black metal bands.
