Decode the secret language of metal.

Metal music has a rich and powerful visual language like no other genre. From death and the devil to mythology and the occult, the artworks of its greatest albums carry a complex hidden code of deeper meanings.

Codex Metallum is your unique guide to these visual themes. Featuring the covers of 250 iconic albums from Black Sabbath to Slipknot and Motorhead to Pantera, as well as bespoke illustrations by Rammstein collaborators Fortifem, this one-of-a-kind book decodes the imagery of metal and unlocks the secrets hidden within.

Packaged in an embossed, leather-effect case with metallic foil finishes, Codex Metallum is a stunning collector’s item and essential reading for any metalhead.
