Editora Denfire started in Brazil in 2018 with the book OFFLINE: Sondando o Underground, a compilation of interviews and gig reviews that the author, Denfire, did in the UK as a mag correspondent during the ten year period he lived in London. Among the interviewees are: Jeff Mantas, Jello Biafra, Henry Rollins, Lemmy Kilmister, Mick Box, Mille Petrozza, Gizz Butt, Rick Rozz, Paul Speckmann, Ruyter Suys, Chris Jericho, Brian Tatler, Bobby Liebling, among many others.
The next book to hit the shops will be Black Funeral: A História do Mercyful Fate by Martin Popoff – who already has two of his books released by Editora Denfire.
