The book has information that any death metal fan with an interest out side of listening to the music will find utterly fascinating.
The book looks at the early cross over of anarcho punk and metal, the birth of Napalm Death (an amazing story in itself) and the explosion of death metal around the world.
It tells us of the links between bands, tape traders, and the rise of the american death metal scene.
There are so many suprises in this book, like band memebers from diferent groups you'd never expect to know each other, or have helped each other out in the business, and many other twist and turns along the way.
It describes the rise of the death metal Labels, their relationships with the bands and the eventual "death" of the genre, and rebirth.
The book is packed full of B/W photos of all the major players, and some lesser legends.
Another really nice touch is the "where are they now" section included at the end, mentioning most of the big names of the 90's death metal scene who have since dissapeared.
A truly inspiring book that lets you know what was happening during the rise and fall (and rise again !!!) of the most extreme (and finest) music on the planet !
