Mighty-thewed barbarians… vengeful lords of chaos… desolate devil-haunted ruins… carnage-soaked battlefields… forbidden spells of great power…

All these you will find in the works of authors of heroic fantasy as well as heavy metal musicians. But modern fantasy has been plagued with convoluted plots and series without end. Who better to return traditional fantasy to its former glory than the heavy metal bards?

Swords of Steel Omnibus Edition is an anthology of fantastic and horrific adventure stories, each penned by a heavy metal musician. Members of bands such as Bal-Sagoth, Manilla Road, Cauldron Born, Slough Feg, Nocturnus, Eternal Champion and more prove their talent for the written word as well as song by invoking a fresh wave of dark and twisted dreams from worlds beyond our own.
