Jon Kristiansen is a metal scholar with a fanboy's heart. In 20 printed issues over 25 years, Slayer Mag covered the black and death metal scenes with the zeal of teenager repeatedly discovering Black Sabbath for the first time. But Kristiansen's foremost heroes (and friends) were the members of Bathory, Celtic Frost, Morbid and, crucially, the Norwegian ne'er-do-wells in Mayhem, Burzum, Darkthrone and Emperor.
