Editorial Reviews

"HELLRAISERS cuts to the core of Heavy Metal’s history with a healthy dose of humor, the sincerity of a committed Jedi, and the familiarity of your closest metal brothers and sisters. Think of this book as the literary version of stealing your older brother/sister’s records when you were a kid, only there is so much to learn contained herein that even the most well studied metal scholars will find truth in these pages. For myself, reading about the genre of music I helped pioneer in context of this vast history is overwhelming. Most music is created upon the foundation of a love for music that came before it and this book does an amazing job of illuminating this relationship. In a time of fake news, fake music, fake pop stars, the fake reality that is the Internet, HELLRAISERS proves to be a much needed and much welcomed addition to the written history of heavy metal.”        - Mike Schleibaum, guitarist for Darkest Hour
