Présentation de l'éditeur

Mick Wall moves on from Led Zeppelin to produce a definitive doorstop on Metallica.

Alongside contemporaries Slayer, Megadeath and Anthrax, Metallica came to prominence in the eighties as one of the 'big four' of thrash metal. Metallica were to thrash, though, what the Sex Pistols were to punk. Nearly thirty years on, their tale is one of alcohol, rule breaking and tragically early death. But allied to that are colossal sales figures for their records -- they are the fifth-highest selling recording artists of all time - and members with backgrounds that touch on jazz and classical music. Metallica, in fact, have garnered more critical acclaim than any heavy rock band since Led Zeppelin.

Fresh from the critical and commercial success of WHEN GIANTS WALKED THE EARTH, Mick Wall takes a similar informed look at the band, a group he has known on and off since their formation in 1981.

I think the whole part about how the band was created is really great and helps us understand where Metallica comes from. The depiction of those years back in the 1980s and how things worked back then is particularly well made and enlightening. However, there are a few things I did not like so much. First, the beginnings of chapters written in italics are not always that clear, for instance as to who is speaking, to whom, and what's that got to do with the rest, etc. It took me a while to realize the author implied himself in the biography, which I had not expected. Then, I found the last quarter of the biography quite rushed and somehow written with far less enthusiasm than the beginning, with fewer details and some kind of estrangement from the band. More seriously, I frankly disapproved of the way Mick Wall passes judgement on Jason Newsted. I didn't see the point of that whole page written against him, about how he wasn't up to Cliff Burton's level etc. Of course Newsted was not Burton, but does a biographer need to vent his personal frustration at that sort of thing? I, as a reader, certainly found this irrelevant and inappropriate. Finally, I got really angry when it came to the author's judgement on Death Magnetic. This album is one of my favourites, but of course I am no expert like Mr Wall. Just a grass-roots fan. Basically, all the elements he rejects as flaws on this album are qualities to me. The length of the tracks, the change in rhythm, the complexity. No, I have no feeling of déjà-vu. And yes, I do remember each song after listening to the album because they are very different from each other and all very powerful. Maybe all these music experts are too jaded now... Anyway, I don't really like it when a biographer tells his readers what to like or not. I rather expect factual knowledge, not an imposed, biased, very personal view on the works. Oh, but as a whole, it's a good book to read to learn about the story of Metallica.

HASH(0x959c4c60) étoiles sur 5 Mick Wall knows Metallica inside and out 21 février 2011

Mick Wall's new book on Metallica is brilliant. Unlike so many other authors/journalists who have written books on Metallica in the past, Mick has followed this band from the beginning and shares close personal stories that very few have shared before. There's been an onslaught of books on Metallica that's been released in recent years but this one is the real deal and a must for the true Metallica fan!
HASH(0x95ba46c0) étoiles sur 5 Excellent book 25 septembre 2015

This book sets out to tell the story of Metallica up to around 2010. It does this incredibly well. We get a lot of detail of the formative years. We get it in spades. The sort of upbringing the major players had, the various early line ups and the trials and tribulations of not only them but their managers. A lot of time is spent giving due respect to people who obviously believed in them and provided the financial leg-ups required. There are interview snippets from so many people from the early days that you really feel you are getting a complete picture.

The upwards trajectory of the band is covered well as is the death of Cliff Burton. The latter is a theme that will be returned to over and over again through the book because it had so much influence on their later attitudes and to the experience of Cliffs’ replacement in the band. The beauty of this book is that you know the author isn’t someone just handed this as a project by their publisher. Mick Wall actually lived and breathed music for many years and has a professional relationship with Metallica going back decades. As well as knowing and being known to many other people he interviewed for the book such as members of Anthrax and Exodus.

There is a lot of good stuff too when covering the ‘weird’ 90’s years where the band put out product that seemed to almost be baiting their fan base. Which kinda backfired. Though there is a lot of perspective given as Mick Wall know as well as anyone with a few IQ points lying about their brain case that bands that relentlessly re-tread the same formula often come unstuck. Well… there is AC/DC… but even they became a bit of a caricature in the late 80’s/early 90’s.

Be that as it may, we also get a decent overview of Jason leaving and a good look at the working relationships with their producers. Rob Trujillo joining the band is given the once over and the way the band was travelling up to around 2010 is well covered.

By the books end you feel you have a good handle on the personalities within the band and their good and bad points. What is really masterful about this book is your opinions of the band members form themselves, you aren’t browbeaten in to thinking Lars is the thrusting business guy – it is blatantly obvious. Or that all those years you thought James was a flippant tosser you were pretty much right. And that yes Kirk really has very little voice musically. He’s just become fabulously rich because he can solo well and keeps out of the way of the others.

A really interesting book. A book that will make you aware of a bunch of stuff you may not have known, introduced you to characters and back stories you’d perhaps not fully understood and certainly a book that makes you want to re-explore the back catalogue you have sitting on your shelf.

Pretty much required reading for any Metallica fan.

Getting inside the lives of these guys were amazing. It shows you: they are still real people.

In Johannesburg, South Africa, they were talking to the fans like friends and took 20 minutes to say thank you.

I didn't get the impression that the author liked the band or their music. Smells like a cash job. No passion. Hack.

Every Metallica fan knows the story, but there is nothing like telling it in a book to add detail and more clarity.
