So, it's that time of my finnish course again that we have to read a book and write a report about it. We were given a limited choice of categories, and a some kind of a book about metal music history or bands would fit into one of those categories, as long as it's a real book, not a list of best albums or something like that. Any suggestions? I have a little bit over two weeks to read it, and it should be commonn enough to be found in a finnish library.

You could try looking for Metallica's biography. If my school library, of all places, has it, you should be able to find it.

Not a bad idea, but if possible, i'd like to read something that kind of covers more about metal music. But a biography sounds good, maybe metallica, and I remember seeing a Slayer biography at our library. could try that.

It seems for some reason,many books about metal keep listing AC/DC as metal,when they're actually hard rock.

Should i write to the author of the books and tell them that they're wrong?

There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Tony Iommi's biography is really good. It's well written, IMO, but I don't know if it's available in finnish.

Can you not find it on Amazon or something? It's a really good read if you're into the genre.

Lords of Chaos: The Bloody Rise of the Satanic Metal Underground. Was incredibly well reviewed, and the 50 or so pages I've read have been great so far.

This. I'm not a fan of their music, but I bought the book after reading reviews. It's amazing these guys haven't died from some sort of STD infection or drug abuse. Well technically, Nikki Sixx was dead for a little while from a heroin overdose, but it's a miracle the guy is still alive.

Sir, the contents of my mouth just blew all over my keyboard, desk, and part of my monitor. For the record, it was slightly chewed Keebler cookies and coffee slurry.

There's a book someone left at my work called 'The book of Metal' with an A-Z listing of influential metal. On the same two pages as ACDC who only had a blurb was a blurb about Bryan Adams and a full page pic of Bryan Adams rocking out.

Also mentioned were Foreinger, Journey, Toto, ELO and Yes. And its called The Book of Metal!

So I recommend that one.

I can't remember who wrote it, but there's a book about the life of a metalfan from the age of about twelve that I read and I thought it was pretty interesting, cause it goes through Genre's of Metal and the guitars too.

It's called Hellbent For Leather, but can't remember the author. Sorry.
