About the Author

Peter Beste (born 1978) is an American documentary photographer who specializes in photographing subcultures. Beste has published two books, True Norwegian Black Metal (Vice Books 2008) and Houston Rap (Sinecure 2013). Beste's work has been published in a variety of journals and has been exhibited in New York, London, Paris, Tokyo, Oslo and more. Peter Rodney "Biff" Byford (born 15 January 1951)[1] is an English singer best known as the lead singer of the heavy metal band Saxon. They released their self-titled debut album in 1979, and became part of what was known as the new wave of British heavy metal, which also included bands like Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. The band had commercial success as well, charting eight UK Top 40 albums and five Top 40 singles between 1980 and 1986.


Yes, Defenders of the Faith -- the fun, fascinating, frequently hilarious, strangely touching new book from celebrated True Norwegian Black Metal music photographer Peter Beste -- is, as billed, a collection of battle vest portraiture. But the lush tome is just as much a ground-level, fly on the wall exploration of, as Beste aptly puts it in our interview below, the "energy, passion and camaraderie of heavy metal culture" that gave rise to it. - Decibel 8/14/2019
