With this delicious collection of favorite basic recipes by heavy metal bands from around the globe, Annick and#147;The Morbid Chefand#8221; Giroux declares war on junk food, and fires up the flame for a special heavy metal feast.
Hellbent for Cooking feeds voracious appetites with a varied menu of over a hundred recipes from thirty countries, including Yorkshire Pudding from England, Beer Pizza Crust from Germany, Spaghetti Barracuda from Italy, Fand#229;rikand#229;l from Norway, Country Lamb Exohiko from Greece, Churrasco from Brazil, and Mushroom Steak and#224; la Jack Danieland#8217;s from the United States.
The dishes are legendary, and so are the bands. Feel the heat of thrash metal pioneers Sepultura, Kreator, Anthrax, and Nuclear Assault; the proto-metal heavy rock of Thin Lizzy, early Judas Priest, and Uriah Heep; the slow-cooked doom of Pentagram and Saint Vitus; and the extreme cuisine of underground pioneers Autopsy, Death, Repulsion; and Norwayand#8217;s infamous black metal chefs Mayhem and Gorgoroth.

Try After the Bombsand#8217; Speed Metal Vegan Tofu, or Eyehategodand#8217;s favorite New Orleans Blood Red Beans and Rice.
Afterwards, Doro Pesch of Warlock serves her Black Forest Cake, and Richard Christy from Death pours his trademark cocktail, the mighty Viking Testicle. Now for anyone with a taste for metal: The kitchen gates are openand#151;grab your weapons of mass nutrition and let the feasts begin!
