4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but should have been longer..., 2 Jan. 2005

This review is from: Choosing Death: The Improbable History of Death Metal and Grindcore (Paperback)
I'll start by saying that Mudrian has done a fantastic job in putting this book together. He sticks to his subject matter well and has written a book that will appeal to both the hardcore grindhead and the casual listener alike, and it is extremely readable. His passion for this genre clearly shows through and he has obviously put a lot of time and effort into his research. This is, for me at least, where the book falls just a little short. I can't help but feel that the written history has gone the same way as the scene it's describing, as the depth of writing seems to go very thin around the early to mid 90's period, only to come back to strength as the scene picked up again. The essential discography (which is very good by the way) shows that the author was aware that there was still a lot going on in this period, but the main text seems to miss the bulk of it. This coupled with the unforgivable omission of a mention of Carcass' Necroticism album means it's a 4 out of 5 for me. All that said, this is by far the best book of its kind that I've read and I recommend you give it a try. Grind on!!
