It Books: “Louder Than Hell: The Definitive Oral History Of Heavy Metal” Is Coming To Paperback

THE BOOK THAT’S BEEN CALLED THE “WAR AND PEACE OF METAL

IS OUT IN PAPERBACK APRIL 29th!

For fans of Heavy Metal, this book is an absolute must.  Rolling Stone Magazine has called “Louder Than Hellone of the 20 best music books of 2013.”  Here is what some others had to say about the book.

ozzy“Massive and massively entertaining.” THE NEW YORKER

“…as indispensable as a skull-adorned leather jacket.A-” —ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

“Essential.” REVOLVER (4/4 stars review!)

“An indispensable oral history of an often misunderstood musical genre.”KIRKUS REVIEWS (a starred review and “Best Book of 2013” pick)

 “No one’s gone quite as deep into the genre’s recesses as this 746-page oral history… 4 stars.”ROLLING STONE

“This is the best oral history I’ve read since Please Kill Me. . . I couldn’t put it down.” —Matt Pinfield, DJ/VJ

 “Your eyeballs may need earplugs.”USA TODAY

 “…reads like an extended, uncensored, shockingly satisfying episode of VH1’s Behind the Music. – THE WASHINGTON POST

 “…the authors’ inclusiveness give this examination a weight that is just as heavy as the music.”PUBLISHERS WEEKLY metallica

“This is a book every metal fan should own.  A fascinating high-octane chronicle of metal mayhem that takes readers on a wild ride, from metal’s earliest days to the head-banging present.  I’m not saying this just because I’m IN the book, but…if yo ulove metal, great stories, and music history told by the people who made it, then Louder Than Hell is a must-read.” – Alice CooperAlice_Cooper

Doesn’t get any better than THAT for an endorsement right?  Based on hundreds of original interviews with Metal luminaries including members of Black Sabbath, Megadeath, Korn, Pantera, Limp Bizkit, Metallica, Marilyn Manson, Van Halen and many more, Louder Than Hell is as legit as it gets when talking about metal.

LouderthanhellWritten by veteran rock journalists, Jon Wiederhorn and Katherine Turman, Louder Than Hell was assembled from more than 300 interviews from over a 25-year span.  Turman and Wiederhorn dug deep into their extensive list of contacts to uncover never-before-heard stories, eye-opening admissions and the truth behind metal’s most explosive legends.  With an introduction by Scott Ian of Anthrax and an afterword by Rob Halford of Judas Priest, this is the book that metal fans have been waiting for.

Check Out Some New Tribute Art From A Few Members Of The Poster Posse For Sony Pictures: “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″

You would think that with all the Poster Posse Projects I have lined up, PLUS their day jobs, that the members would be too busy to tackle anything else.  Well some of them got to thinking that they wanted to do some prints for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″, you know, as kind of a side gig.

background

Well I would never want to stand in the way of creativity so here are a few tribute images from some of the crew.  Take a look and let us know what you think down in the comments section.  The movie looks great and we can’t wait to see it.

kaz_tribute_spider_m3Kaz Oomori

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2™, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.

PP-spiderman2-doalyv2

Doaly

It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp

Electro_.Final“Spiderman has always been a favorite superhero of mine. I think the reboot was very successful and I’m happy to see a darker tone to the new Spidey films.  Jaime Fox was such an interesting casting choice for Electro and the new look they gave him is awesome! I wanted to pay tribute to what will undoubtedly be a another great superhero flick!”Robert Bruno

‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ has an all star cast including Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Chris Cooper, Felicity Jones, B.J. Novak, Sarah Gadon and Sally Field. It swings into Domestic theaters on May 2nd and the UK on April 18th.
