Hi there,

wonder if someone can help me figure out the most essential Metal related books.
Books as "Choosing Death", "Swedish Death Metal" or "Lords Of Chaos" were essential for Death and Black Metal fans.
Other books as "White Line Fever", "The Dirt" or "Show No Mercy" (Jarek Szubrycht)" were not minor great.

I'm sure there are plenty of other books available which are more than worth to read. Would be great if you could help me figuring out the REALLY great ones. I'm not interested in any lame publications.
Language should be either German or English.

Thanks

'Lucifer Rising' by Gavin Baddeley is a pretty good read. Not exclusively metal, but contains features on heavy, death, thrash and black metal genres and their relationship with Satanism/ The Left Hand path. Some cool interviews with characters like Paul Ledney, Glen Benton, Euronymous, Cronos etc.

No.

Also, If I were you, I'd avoid (almost) everything on the market. Music(k) is listened to, not read; pompous critics and 'metal scholars' won't give you the feeling.

Very subjective and sometimes wrong, but a nice document of the 90ies-Zeitgeist.

I think a little background info will kill no one. Also, you are forgetting that music has a cause; people make music for a reason, and it's not "just music" as a result. Helps to crack a book and find out.

"The New Wave of British Heavy Metal Encyclopedia" by Malc MacMillan is the best book I've ever read on music. "Suzi Smiled" by John Tucker is also a really good book on the NWOBHM.

I definitely like this book, I picked up at Barnes n Noble a few years ago and its an interesting read.

Its hard to ask metalheads to recommened metal books since they tend to hate every metal book ever made.
