Well written and very informative, I remember the pre-Reign in Blood era and a lot of information about the albums Show No Mercy and Hell Awaits and the excellent Haunting the Chapel episode! It's a book that covers all eras of Slayer and very well researched!

I've got to agree with the other reviews about the flow of this book; it doesn't.

To be honest, the first however many pages feel like a goddamn mess.

That said, the writing is good and lighthearted and funny and the journalism is solid, but man, this book is badly put together and edited.

HASH(0x8d016c24) out of 5 stars Good info, but... 27 Dec. 2013
By El Dopa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ferris has done a great job compiling 30+ years of info on Slayer. Being a die-hard fan, some of the info I knew but there was a great deal that I didn't. Learning about Lombardo's in & outs of the band (and reasons) were interesting and not as black & white as I thought. I also realized that maybe KK isn't as big of an a-hole as I suspected. My biggest issue with this book is that it is in severe need of an editor and a typesetter. There are countless misspellings, copy that is repeated and the overall flow of the book is choppy. It's almost written as if Ferris was finding info and just copying and pasting it. There's no flow and it keeps stopping and starting. Again, great book with a ton of info and links, but I wish Ferris would let an editor put the final touches on this if it goes to actual print.

HASH(0x8d6f40fc) out of 5 stars Required reading for any slayer fan 4 Jan. 2014
By Garrett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This was an informative and entertaining bio piece on Slayer. The interviews and timeline make the price of entry more than worth it. That said, I would have liked to have seen more on their songwriting process, not just who was credited with each song. As has been noted by other reviewers, the e-book is riddled with typos and repeated sentences. Maybe the editor was too busy ripping seat cushions and moshing? If so I'm willing to forgive 'em.

HASH(0x8c913024) out of 5 stars Great Stories...Horrible Editing 10 Dec. 2013
By lekoone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Slayer fans will really enjoy the book. The intimate details of their rise to the top of the thrash metal mountain are very well researched, but the editing of the "digital" book leaves me discouraged and embarrassed for the author. I'm only halfway thru and I've counted at least 200 grammatical and format errors. Take the extra week before releasing this and properly edit your material!!!!

HASH(0x8d56e74c) out of 5 stars A good read 13 Jan. 2014
By Old Mothertrucker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read the Kindle edition one weekend while suffering the pains of my beloved 85 Camaro broke down. I started listening to "Hell Awaits" and thought to myself "Self, I should look on Amazon for a book about Slayer" and lo and behold their it was. I couldn't resist the price of 6.66 Slaytanic Dollars and downloaded it. It's a good read. Most of the info on the band isn't really about the Sporting Girls, the Drugs, or the Wildness of being in the Greatest Metal Band. That info will probably come out before Tom or Kerry kick off to relish in the thought of the Mayhem of Fun they had. This book does seem to make Tom, Kerry, and Jeff the guys who screwed over Dave. To not give him any credits for his Drums of Fury is unjust. I know the other 3 might have come up with the riffs and lyrics but them killer drums were a MASSIVE part of Slayers Music. To me Jeff Hannemman's replacement Gary Holt (A top notch guitarist) is good for now but nobody compares to Lombardo. The man is such an integral part of their early sound and without him it showed in the Bostaph releases. Anyways if you like Slayer and want some good info about their albums and tours and some other personal things add it to your collection.

HASH(0x8d396c24) out of 5 stars Get this man an editor! 24 Mar. 2014
By Rich L. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I REALLY wanted to love this book. It's a good read, and essential for Slayer fans, but it's a mess! It has typos galore, and is badly laid out. It's as if D.X. turned in a rough draft for the eBook, and they used that for the printed version. Pictures turn up chapters after they've been discussed, and again, the typos are multiple. It's a shame, because his first Slayer book (his 33 1/3rd entry on the "Reign In Blood" album) is great. However, that series (despite its many flaws) is professionally edited and layed out. And I understand that this is more of a self-published indie effort, but that doesn't justify the book's sloppiness. He does state that if you find errors in the printed version he'll send you an updated eBook for free. I appreciate that offer, but I don't buy or read eBooks-that's why I bought the printed version!
