'Louder Than Hell: The Definitive Oral History of Metal' by Jon Wiederhorn and Katherine Turman
Come home and roost, metalheads: to the tune of 250 plus interviews with the likes of Anthrax, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Slayer, Judas Priest, Pantera, White Zombie, and Slipnot. And if Louder Than Hell's celebration of all things maximum volume were not enough, it also offers whole journey into what's tantamount to a way of life. And that devil's horn thing? You've probably been doing it wrong. Who knew.
