So, one would think that Heavy Metal musicians would be terrible cooks. This line of thinking is horrifically wrong. Considering that at various points in their careers most musicians end up on tight budgets, the ability to cook becomes something of a necessity. Thus, they tend to come up with interesting recipes of their own.

This leads to this book, which is basically a collection of recipes which aren't necessarily complicated to prepare, generally aren't expensive, and which don't use a lot o

Okay. It's a cookbook. Right. Who reads cookbooks? Wait. I do. Sort of. OKAY.
Mostly it's a novelty cookbook. The layout sucks (I swear, there is no rhyme or reason for the order of the recipes. Seafood should go by seafood). The recipes aren't all straightforward Ingredients then Instructions. Some of them are in paragraph form.
Some of the recipes are weird as hell. Really. One memorable one is by one of the guys from Offspring that's called some dude's (I think his name is Rick) prison spread
This book is going to be a phenomenon. It's got its own website, Facebook page, there is tweeting involved--it's a full-on rock-n-roll mega promotion for the November 16 release of this book. And you know what? It's worth it.

I had my doubts when I first got it, but I quickly figured out that this really is a mostly serious cookbook (some of these rockers are actually trained chefs and a whole lot of them are really passionate about great food), albeit with plenty of fun extras, trivia, and behin

A collection of recipes assembled from various heavy metal performers, this is exactly the sort of mixed bag you'd expect. There are some pretty decent recipes as well as some half-hearted attempts (sorry, pop corn and Raisinettes is not a recipe).

If you go into this because of the anecdotes and mayhem the book's description promises, you'll be disappointed. The vast majority of the entries are just recipes - often with some insight as to why they like it or where it came from - but the stories

I didn't get a chance to read every page nor try any recipes, I rented it from the bookstore I work at. But I read a lot of the stories, and this book is totally AWESOME!!! Especially if you're a metal fan! It is so cool to read these very personal anecdotes from epic musicians, and you get to make tasty nomnoms. From what I can tell, the recipes are easy to make and crowd-pleasing. Bands are always together so everyone has to chow together right?

If you are considering buying this book, I'd che
While the concept of the book was great, the actual recipes leave a bit to be desired. I hope the recipes contained within aren't representative of the cooking abilities of the metal community in general. Between the recipes that didn't bother specifying how much of an ingredient was required and the recipes (stuffed mushrooms) or the recipes that were so full of brand suggestions they looked sponsored (the grilled pizza). The stories were interesting but the recipes for the most part didn't mat ...more
How fun. Basic recipes through difficult ones, all by your favorite metal musicians. Cool stories and tidbits, too. A fun cookbook!

This is a fun book!! I really enjoyed flipping through it, reading the anecdotes, and going over the recipes. Some of them look REALLY tasty (my fav so far is the Sausage Bread). It took me a bit to realize how the book was divided up, and....I think it needs to be refined just a bit more. They really should have had a breakfast section - although I guess these guys are partying so much that they end up eating breakfast during my supper time. *grin* The other thing that I found interesting was t ...more
LOVE this book - I may not be the biggest metal fan, but I think this book is a great combination of recipes and funny stories! There are recipes in there that are easy enough for non-cooks to try - and there are some that are very impressive (a couple of these musos could open up restaurants!)
I highly recommend it!
A fun compilation but not usually my type of recipes!
Eileen Velthuis
Some of the recipes were really good; some, I get the feeling were just sent in by a metal band member thinking "oh no, what can I send them that sounds super metal!?"

overall though, i like its metal kitschiness! it is a keepsake book.
I read this from cover to cover, although there are only about three recipes I'd prepare (maybe the 2nd edition will have more vegan stuff) it was fun read, liked the photos too.
