Iceland's black metal scene is an isolated world set in what is already one of the world's most isolated countries. That is why photographer Verði ljós,  the alter- ego of Hafsteinn Viðar Ársælsson, founder of solo music project Wormlust began documenting local black metal bands such as Misþyrming, Mannveira, Carpe Noctem and others. Now ljós has collected three years worth of striking photographs and snippets of lyrics in a new book Svartmálmur. The book, released by British publisher Ditto in a limited edition of 500, is available now
