Recommended to Jeff by: Discovered it on my own.

1st Read: April 21, 1996 - April 27, 1996

The monster that once ruled the metal world has a name. It called itself....Metallica! Yes, they are still around and putting on shows, selling out venues whilst traveling the world to perform for thousands on an almost nightly basis. Somehow it is just not the same.

I ask myself if I still love the band and its music once in awhile. They started losing me in between the Black album and Load. For me, it is the first four albums - the blood and guts of

For die hard fans only. In depth details of the early years, the '80's era Metallica. The best years in my opinion. Lots of details about Cliff who was always a favorite - being a bass player myself. Also some great Mustaine era highlights as well. Hit the Liiiiiiights!!!!!!

I got this book from my sister, back in eh... 1994, I reckon. Not sure anymore. Anyway, at the time I was a massive Metallica fan, they were my Metal gods, so to speak. And so it was interesting to read about their career until the early 1990s. Yes, this book came out a few years before the band changed their image and style that lead to Load and Reload.

The book has glossy pages, lots of very beautiful photos and well-written stories. Recommended for any 'tallica fan, without question!

I feel I enjoyed the pix in this book more than what I read. It's cool they added photos but I'm not sure what the author wanted to do with it? It could've been more better written & more detailed. But the pix were great, yes. Had many of the awesome late bassist Cliff Burton.

There was a time when I was a devout Metallica fan. That was many years and several crappy CD's ago. But this is a pretty good book, going back to the origins of the band and tracing their rise to superstardom up through 1993, about the time they ceased to mean anything to me. Filled with tons of rare old Cliff Burton-era photos and concert ads and flyers from their early days, it is at least a very visually appealing book.

Read this book when it came out - 15 years ago - I know I loved it at the time - not sure what I'd think of it now though.
