Review: Sound of the Beast: The Complete Headbanging History of Heavy Metal

User Review  - Goodreads

Are you kidding?! This is the best book about metal, so far, ever!! At least it's my favorite. Really, this is hands down my favorite music book of all time. It's immensely fun to read and was written by a dude who loves metal just as much as you or I do, or maybe more. Read full review
