Until the band write their own story, nobody is going to better Mick Wall's page-turner of a book. He presents his own opinion and no doubt, the band and those around them would disagree with many of his judgements. (I do - this is a guy who praises 'Load' but slams 'Death Magnetic.' Come again, mate?) But nobody can deny the incredibly atmospheric, meticulously researched nature of this door-stopper that I raced through in a few hours, unable to put down. It really is spectacularly good. The most enjoyable part of this is the unique, birds-eye aspect of the record business side of this legendary band's incredible success. How many Metallica books go into detail about Music for Nations, for example? And how well the twelve-inch pressings of 'Creeping Death' sold in as many vinyl colours as Martin Hooker could scamble up to put out there? I particularly enjoyed Wall's summary of the enduring partnership between Metallica and their managers. Unlike other books, this is not just a rehash of published articles. Wall's writing style fits rock like a leather jacket, and reminds me of how much I enjoyed his articles back when he was one of Kerrang!s star writers. He interweaves the account of the band with a touching portrait of his own life, not sparing himself from his critical judgments either... his sulkiness, his own ego, his boozing, his passion for music. Wall is a memorable writer, a great researcher, and more importantly, he was there. Even if you hate heavy metal, if you have the slightest interest in music in general, in the music business, or in a tremendous account of growing up in the spotlight, this is the book for you. I've read a bunch of pop music books and this one of the best I have ever encountered.

Extremely well written, detailed and infused with the insight you'd expect from the man who, for the thick end of two decades, was confidant and Father Confessor to rock's royalty and glitterati. King Of The Scribes, Mick Wall, has penned the definitive biography of Metal's biggest band.

While McIver's thoroughly excellent, The Truth About Metallica, was a pugnacious and highly subjective overview of the Metallica story and the myths that shot up around them, Mick, here, draws on the many personal experiences he shared with the band and, supplemented by clearly first-rate researching and a slew of fascinating never-before-seen interviews, has delivered an absorbing and utterly compelling account.

Wince-inducing honesty and his trade-mark stylish turn-of-phrase ("Neon ooze" p86;-)), mean this beautifully wrought and impeccably presented work contains everything you could ever want to know about Hetfield, Ulrich and Co.

Napster, Mustaine, melt-down, crisis and re-invention make for a gripping story and who better than Mick Wall to tell it? By turns, hilarious, moving and jaw-dropping but never anything less than totally compelling, I just hope Mick feels the agonizing days, weeks and months spent in bringing this to fruition have been worth it. For us readers it's been worth every bit of his personal pain ;-)

A must-have for anyone interested in Metallica but also for anyone at all who enjoys and appreciates great writing and, to be honest, this sits alongside the absolutely first rate When giants Walked The Earth as one of the greatest rock biogs ever written.

Absolutely essential and a at ridiculously cheap [...] for over 500 pages, and in hardback, this represents tremendous value for money.

I cannot recommend this enough. Tell Santa you want one. You will not be disappointed.

Format: Hardcover
Mick Wall is a good storyteller, and his previous books have always been good for pub yarns, but sometimes let down by too much of his own intrusive personality. I'm not a great Metallica fan but I requested this for Christmas, as I enjoyed Wall's book about Axl Rose. Enter Night is business as usual - There is good detail, thorough digging around in the archives and Wall's own time spent with Metallica is well utilised. It's a ripping good rock story, like Metallica it is very macho, very knockabout and sometimes a bit heavy going. But worth reading. Recommended. And if you love Metallica you will love this.

I've followed and enjoyed Mick Wall throughout his 'rock mag' years, bought his Black Sabbath book, and enjoyed it. Enjoyed this one thoroughly too, particularly the recounting of his 'One on One's' at the start of each chapter. However, the book concentrates so much on the formative years of the band, presumably because Mick had the most access at that point, either due to his own or the bands desires (I'm going with his, based on his opinion of everything after The Black Album (Lulu aside)), that the period from 93-09 (16 years) is dealt with in 113 pages, compared to the 347 pages for the bands first 11 years. Despite that, there is so much depth in the material in the early (and undoubtedly finest) years that should satisfy any 'proper' fan. Interviews and recollections with friends of the band, other Big 4 luminaries, and from Mick himself both are insightful and thought provoking. Characterisation of the massive changes in band members personalities over the years is also a great read. A must-have for fans of the band.
