Here''s one for the headbangers! With its loud, aggressive rhythms; slashing guitar solos, and often-disturbing themes, metal is mesmerizing: it cuts to the bone and takes rock right to the edge. Heavy Metal takes readers on an in-depth musical journey through this testosterone-fueled style, including its origins, development, and subgenres, such as thrash, doom, death, and gothic metal. With exclusive pictures and commentary from experts in the form, it analyzes such groundbreaking bands as Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Mötley Crüe, Motorhead, Metallica, Megadeth, and Savatage through their sounds, lyrics, themes, and trend-setting actions.
