Description

'A flaming juggernaut of heavy-metal biog' GUARDIAN'This is the definitive account of heavy metal's biggest band of all' CLASSIC ROCK 'Truly enlightening' ROCK SOUND'ENTER NIGHT, Mick Wall's biography of Metallica confirms this grizzled veteran to be as engaged and waspishly authoritative a chronicler of metal's most hirsute behemoths as Barry Miles has been for the Beats' INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAYMick Wall moves on from Led Zeppelin to produce a definitive doorstop on Metallica. Alongside contemporaries Slayer, Megadeath and Anthrax, Metallica came to prominence in the eighties as one of the 'big four' of thrash metal.

Metallica were to thrash, though, what the Sex Pistols were to punk.

Nearly thirty years on, their tale is one of alcohol, rule breaking and tragically early death.

But allied to that are colossal sales figures for their records -- they are the fifth-highest selling recording artists of all time - and members with backgrounds that touch on jazz and classical music.

Metallica, in fact, have garnered more critical acclaim than any heavy rock band since Led Zeppelin.

Fresh from the critical and commercial success of WHEN GIANTS WALKED THE EARTH, Mick Wall takes a similar informed look at the band, a group he has known on and off since their formation in 1981.
