Beautiful book visually and well worth the money, but lots of editorial issues with the text, and lackluster writing.
Gotta commend the enthusiasm and love the author obviously has for the subject matter.

The book probably doesn't really deserve 5 stars, but I'm giving them because this is a truly impressive labor of love. The reason I say this though is the writing style is a little strange to me, there are several editing errors that really stand out, but it's clear throughout that Martos loves art, and he loves metal music.

This is such an ‘easy’ book – everyone who loves these albums will enjoy reading about their cover artworks. However, it has some critical, often also curious, flaws.

A fascinating behind-the-scenes tour of some of the most iconic Heavy Metal album covers in history.

The key to delving into this tome was to read the story of one album cover per day, accompanied by listening to the self-same album. It's a great way to further appreciate your understanding of album covers that you're already deeply familiar with, or introduce you to covers (and bands) you may be less familiar with, or have never heard of.

Martos explores art styles, influences, composition and m

Beautiful book, that covers ( ;) )a lot of the masterpieces within the realms of metal. I do miss a few entries, but this book could easily have been three times as long. The author made a good job in picking the right album covers. The book is well written with only some minor gtammatical mistakes.
