Welcome to bebemetal.com, the birthplace of Don't Fear the Dark series.

Don’t Fear the Dark is a colourful children’s book detailing a loose and lucid history of metal music from its inception in the

60s to now. The first book sets the pace and the scene, and flows into a series of ten other books.

That’s right, we’re taking it to 11!


The eleven books aim to educate young headbangers about a music scene that is often overlooked in society as

well as inform the “littles” that there is nothing to fear about metal music. The book appeals to tiny tots and

metal music lovers who love a good slash of alternative history.

Don’t Fear the Dark 1 details the birth of metal, and in the ten volumes later, the story unfolds to the evolution of the

metal scene around the world. There aren’t many commercial books on the topic of metal music nor are there any books for younger audiences, so this is a first of its kind. It opens discussions about musical inspiration, artistic careers, style statements, adventure, and the macabre. People who are curious and intrigued by a world of music will find

that there’s something in there for them.
