Information
The definitive history of heavy metal, with over 100 interviews with members of Black Sabbath, Metallica, Judas Priest, Twisted Sister, Slipknot, Kiss, Megadeth, Public Enemy, Napalm Death and more.

More than 30 years after Black Sabbath released the first complete heavy metal album, its founder, Ozzy Osbourne, is the star of 'The Osbournes', TV's hippest, new reality show. Contrary to popular belief, headbangers and the music they love are more alive than ever. Yet there has never been a comprehensive book on the history of heavy metal - until now.

Featuring interviews with the members of the biggest bands in the genre, this books gives an overview of the past thirty-plus years of heavy metal, delving into the personal details of those who created it.

From heavy metal's roots in the work of breakthrough groups such as Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin to MTV hair metal, courtroom controversies, black metal murderers, and Ozzfest, the book offers the final word on this elusive, extreme and far-reaching form of music.
