Revue de presse

“The authors inclusiveness give this examination a weight that is just as heavy as the music.” (Publishers Weekly )

Présentation de l'éditeur

The definitive oral history of heavy metal, Louder Than Hell by renowned music journalists Jon Wiederhorn and Katherine Turman includes hundreds of interviews with the giants of the movement, conducted over the past 25 years.

Unlike many forms of popular music, metalheads tend to embrace their favorite bands and follow them over decades. Metal is not only a pastime for the true aficionados; it’s a lifestyle and obsession that permeates every aspect of their being. Louder Than Hell is an examination of that cultural phenomenon and the much-maligned genre of music that has stood the test of time.

Louder than Hell features more than 250 interviews with some of the biggest bands in metal, including Black Sabbath, Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax, Slayer, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Spinal Tap, Pantera, White Zombie, Slipknot, and Twisted Sister; insights from industry insiders, family members, friends, scenesters, groupies, and journalists; and 48 pages of full-color photographs.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The only metal book you need 30 mai 2013
Par C. Runnells - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
At last, someone has written a smart, thorough and thoroughly readable history of metal! Most metal books read like what they are: Books written by sloppy amateurs who are fans more than writers. The people behind "Louder Than Hell" are established professionals who put a lot of care and love into this book. It's full of stories -- in the band's own words -- about touring, recording classic albums and the general metal scene. Great, great book. I can't recommend it enough. Every metal fan owes it to himself (or herself) to get this one!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Fans of music and metal, skip this book. 4 juin 2013
Par tim - Publié sur Amazon.com
I am a huge fan of metal in general, have read quite a few biographies on artists, and the genre. I heard about this book a few months back and was pretty excited to read it when I saw it had come out. The excitement dissipated quickly.

This book is 685 pages, and something that is quickly apparent is that is not nearly enough.

I'll start with the bright spots.

Lemmy Kilmister (Motorhead lead singer/bassist) doesn't have a bad quote in the book. I think I laughed out loud at everything that was attributed to him. Unfortunately he is pretty much in and out within the first 100 pages, and a lot of his quotes are familiar. I'm not quite sure if he just kind of ran through his gamut of great lines with the authors, or some of his stuff was pulled from previous interviews.

The section dealing with the Florida death metal scene of the late-80's and early-90's was something that I had not read very much about despite an interest in bands like Death, and the scene associated with the "Morrisound". The book does a pretty good job delving into the depth surrounding the bands and the scene. Members of Morbid Angel, Deicide, Hate Eternal, etc...provide an interesting look at how the bands are connected, the thrash roots, and a lot of the mindsets that drove the musicians to their extremes.

The black metal section had a little bit of value to it. Much of it was a very simple rehash of the book Lords of Chaos, but it did provide some more information from Varg Vikernes, on his murder of Euronymous. Whether he is entirely to be believed is another matter, but I really had not read his point of view before. There is a depth to how the whole issue is tackled from the view of other members of Mayhem, as well as others in the scene. The way it was covered could have benefited other sections dealing with issues like the deaths of both Cliff Burton (Metallica) and Dimebag Darrell (Pantera).

The highlight of the book is the part dealing with the 80's thrash scene. While it doesn't tackle much new information all while putting a very large focus on Metallica, it really seems to have the most feeling put forth by those interviewed. Still, it's not enough to make this worth purchasing.

Entire sections could have been left out of this book.

The nu-metal chapter really doesn't add much to define the scene. Great, guys were getting blowjobs and the members of Coal Chamber liked meth. So what? In a book about metal, dealing with a genre that I think (sometimes) gets a terrible rap (no pun intended), this could have been a perfect opportunity to try and explain where the artists were coming from. There really is none of that.

I also found the last chapter on the current American metal scene to not portray an interesting future, but a drab, lifeless, radio-driven mess. There is still a thriving underground scene nationwide that has the opportunity to find more people than ever through our fascination with the Internet, and social media. This book really could have helped drive that. Instead it put the focus on bands like Tool, and Mastodon. While both bands are proven, and important, this book really didn't shed much light on anything that isn't commonly known. It also tries hard to convince the reader bands like Godsmack, and Rob Zombie matter. Eh, they're radio fodder, but never going to be the flag bearers going forward. I think this part would have been the perfect place to namedrop and generate some excitement for the future.

At the end of the day anyone who has any knowledge of the genre will probably not find much in this book that makes it worth reading the whole thing. I'm not going to completely blame the authors; they took on a gigantic subject within a limited context. There is some value to pieces of history covered within this text, but it is sparse and definitely not worth the price of admission.

The definitive book on the history of metal has yet to be written. I'm not convinced trying to cover it in one place will even work.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Academic History of Metal 2 août 2013
Par Ria Darling - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I enjoy metal and feel like I know a decent amount about it but damn this book is a hard read. It's like an oral but academic history of metal. It includes all different genres-classic (Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest), the hair bands of the 80s, the big 4 (Metallica, Anthrax, Slayer and Megadeth), the British scene, speed metal, punk metal, black metal, techno metal....the list goes on. Honestly, I could have been spared the inclusion of Filter, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails and Skinny Puppy -not that I don't like them, I just think that they didn't really merit a whole chapter.
My main complaint about the book is that is the way it's organized. It starts out chronological and then segments things by genres. It's hard to get a sense of the 'scene' when it's grouped this way-more interesting would have been to see what's going on in the different genres at the same time to see how each evolved. Rather, you get a sense of each sub-genre as a whole but not a complete picture of the scene. The strongest chapter, in my opinion, is the death metal/black metal chapter, toward the end. SO read the above-notice I'm not talking about the great stories that the artists share in the book? About how everyone has a great Dave Mustaine story? Because, much to my surprise, there wasn't much funny about the book. I was expecting there to be a much bigger Spinal Tap factor but there's just...Not. But there's a great debate on the correct positioning of fingers when flashing the sign of the devil (useful and amusing) and details about Rob Halford's struggles as a gay metal God and well done details of Dimebag's last days before he was shot at a show in Columbus. Worth the read but totally academic-it's obvious the author cares about his subject and has researched it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 They book was well assembled 7 juillet 2013
Par Rob Ling - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I say assembled, because the authors have taken a ton of interviews, and creatively broken them down into context. So it reads as though there are a handful of musicians, roadies, managers, label executives etc... having a conversation about a specific topic as it relates to a specific band, scene at a specific point in time. The transition between these topics is smooth, and flows well. The book takes a chronological path and is fairly thorough. Sure, it isn't going to mention every band, or person involved, but that would be an unreal task. This is a must read for any metal heads out there!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Metal used to be much more Metal 8 juillet 2013
Par Chris Reviews - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book is really strong on the earlier bands and the height of metal. The stories and characters are amazing and interesting. The ending is weak as it focuses on the later metal scenes and trends and the bands that were part of that era. I don't know if that is because the bands are smaller or just the energy and effort of the writers had run out by the time they reached the end. I'm going to say it is that the bands are smaller and pale imitations of what has come before. Even the decadence was third hand and after the first 10 groupie stories they start to sound pathetic. Overall a fascinating read into some wild characters and wild times in a changing industry. If you like music and want to pull the curtain aside you could do way worse.
