The Spellcaster’s Grimoire

Death Metal



From Damnation Books


Music from Hell has gone viral … and you’ll love it to death.


Devastated by the car crash that ended his band, David Fairburn has given up on life—until his song-writing partner returns from the dead to complete their final album.


While David gets a record deal and hits it off with Jessica Chandler, the beautiful label rep, those who stand in the way of the album’s release begin to die one by one, and listeners addicted to the music become homicidal maniacs.


When the concert to debut the album erupts in bloody violence, can David and Jessica prevent the album from going viral and unleashing slaughter on a global scale?



My time as a touring musician provides the background for this Rock ‘n’ Roll Horror novel.

Praise for Death Metal


“Mark All’s Death Metal delivers on its promises ... In many respects, Death Metal reads like a really good 1980’s horror film.  All clearly knows his subject, and he brings it to life in entertaining fashion.  It’s fast, light reading that’ll keep you clicking pages long into the night.”



   – Jim McLeod, Ginger Nuts of Horror



“Nobody rocks horror like Mark All.”


    – Scott Nicholson, the After series.



"Mark All takes us into the world of heavy metal music in this fast-paced horror thriller that really delivers on the chills."


    – Mark Lukens, author of Ancient Enemy



“Award winning author Mark All shows us again why he is a rising star in Horror with his newest novel Death Metal, a unique and gripping story that leaves the reader up late at night, tearing through his tale to find their way to a chilling and unexpected ending.  Expect many sleepless nights after, as his story and characters stay with you long after the final page. I have no doubt we will all be reading Mark All's stories for years to come.”



   – Jeffrey Wilson, Award Winning Author of The Donors and Fade To Black



“Robert Johnson's devil at the "Crossroads" might have been terrifying, but he's got nothing on Mark All's Death Metal. Written with a lyricism that will suck readers in and get in their heads like a dark ode to a malevolent rock god, Death Metal grabs on and doesn't let go till the final chorus. A creative, innovative, horror opera you don't want to miss.”



   – Brett J. Talley, author of That Which Should Not Be, The Void, and others

Excerpt -- Death Metal


Jessica did not want to go inside. She wasn’t just unnerved by the Looper news and anxious about dealing with John Emory. Something wasn’t right.


Maybe they hadn’t heard from the guy because he’d had an accident, he might be lying injured in the house.


“Mr. Emory?” she called out. “John?”


After a few seconds (no need to wait longer, there wouldn’t be a response), she nudged the door open and peered in. She told herself to get on with it and stepped across the threshold, bumping the door all the way open with her hip.


The front door opened directly into the living room, letting in a swath of light as it swung wide. Jessica moved cautiously into the room, the keys in her hand jangling, and she paused to stuff them into her purse.


“John?” she called again, fumbling for the light switch beside the door. “It’s Jessica Chandler from Sage Records. Are you here?”


All was silent. Maybe he had a studio in a back bedroom and was holed up in there, under the headphones.


The smell was so strong now she nearly gagged. She fought an urge to turn and run, fumbled for the light switch, flipped it. Three matching lamps came on to reveal the room, tastefully furnished with masculine but sophisticated style, moderately expensive furniture, and what appeared to be original pieces of modern art on the walls. A huge flat screen television, surround sound system.


She slipped a couple of tissues from her pocketbook and clamped them over her nose, then stepped forward. Moving around a wide, plush chair near the door, she tripped on something.


A body on the floor.
