For all you metalheads who have been desperately wanting some new reading material while you do your holy business on your porcelain throne, authors Howie Abrams and Sacha Jenkins may very well have provided you with your next big thing: The Merciless Book Of Metal Lists! This book is a compendium of dozens of factual, random and often outrageous lists that celebrate the best and the worst aspects of metal.
Contributions come from such authority figures as Scott Ian (Anthrax), Gary Holt (Exodus), Max Cavalera (Sepultura/Soulfly), Danny Lilker (Nuclear Assault/Brutal Truth), Katon W.DePena (Hirax), and many others. There will also be lists from Metal Blade CEO Brian Slagel, Eddie Trunk, Monte Conner, and many more.
Per the official press release: “You want to know about album covers that feature goats on them? What Motorhead icon Lemmy’s warts might tell you if they could speak? The achievements Iron Maiden would never have reached had their original vocalist Paul Dianno remained in the band?”
The book can be pre-ordered here.
