Hey pit,

I'm gonna be on a plane for 10 hours pretty soon, and 10 hours the way back in a couple of weeks. You guys think you could recommend some books about metal to me to kill the time?

Encyclopedia of Metal.

It's pretty much a biography of every major metal band. 'Tis pretty sweet.

dwelling on past mishaps is for the weak. you must stride into the future, unabashed and prepared to fuck up yet again.

Read some Friedrich Nietzsche or some Immanuel Kant, then impress all the ladies with some deep philosophical ****, yo.

Think past the slightly dated writing. Now think about the amount of your life you dedicate to pleasure.

Reading books isn't metal ya nerd!
After all you fell in love with death,
Life has aborted.
All you've had and all you became,
The night is calling, you pray forth.

So what? It's about the message. And as I already said, it's way dated, but what it's warning about is just as relevant now, if not more so.

And 'don't do shit?' So it's not a tepid airport thriller with shootouts and wannabe political conspiracies? So it's not Dan Brown? I fail to see how a restrained book is a bad thing.

Yeah, why not get a good novel or something, rather than something which is likely to just be not much more than an encylopedia, which you will get bored of quickly.

That book is gooooood.....I read because i did a project on the history of heavy metal and thought that it was an informational book, but it turns out it was a novel about a kid who really likes metal. READ IT.

If you like black metal, you should try Lords Of Chaos. Not read it myself, but comes highly recommended by many black metal fans.

i read it and i found to utter crap, but that's just my opinion. though on the other hand they are making it into a movie and they cast one of the guys from twilight as Varg Vikernes so it could be worth a laugh

Woo! Both of those are more "Metal" than most Metal bands anyway. There should be a concept album on The Road.

This, except substitute Clockwork Orange for The Road if you want an entertaining cynical read. The Road is one of the worst books I've read. Reads like a Stephen King novel with horrible dialog.

Example Dialog:

Are we going to die asked the Boy
No said the Man
Are you lying to me asked the Boy
No said the Man
Are you sure asked the Boy
Yes said the man

Seriously Cormac I know you were trying to set a somber, hopeless mood but it seems like you just weren't trying.
