Overview

The result of an extensive poll asking heavy metal fans to list their favorite heavy metal albums, this compendium combines those survey results with interviews of dozens of world-famous rockers who reveal recording session secrets in addition to their own favorite albums. From AC/DC to ZZ Top and from Black Sabbath to Pantera, both classics and lesser-known gems are catalogued and idiosyncratically evaluated. Beginning with reviews of early metal albums of the 1960s and continuing through current hits, the book blends praise and condemnation for the most influential and important heavy metal recordings. Also featured are appendices that revel in mountains of metal minutiae.
