Metallica: The Frayed Ends of Metal Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Metallica, the frayed ends of sanity.

Heavy Metal's most influential voice.

With their cross-bred cacophony of punk's jagged anger and rock and roll's monolithic muscle, they've blown apart the temple doors of the once-sacred Top Ten. Their hurricane mosaic of guitar riffs and feverish lyrics has left America gasping for more from these titans of thrash.

They've done it all on their own terms, crowning themselves true monsters of rock without compromise. Lars, James, Kirk, and Jason gave imploded any existing ideas about metal and replaced the entire genre with a raw, new staple of rock and roll.

Synopsis:

The 1990s are turning into rock 'n' roll's Heavy Metal Decade, and Metallica is already its most influential voice, creating a rock hybrid that rejects convention. Bound to remain a pervasive influence on popular music for years to come, Metallica's story will undoubtedly be required reading for their legions of dedicated fans. 8 pages of photos.
