Heavy Metal Movies
The ultimate guidebook to the complete molten musical cinema experience. Lavishly illustrated and featuring more than 666 of the most metallic movie moments of all time.
Keep reminding yourself: IT’S ONLY A BOOK…
Heavy metal and high-thrill cinema have been joined together like mutant twins since before Black Sabbath took the name of a chilling Italian horror film in 1970. The unadulterated journey of Heavy Metal Movies spans concert movies and trippy midnight flicks, inspirational depictions of ancient times and future apocalypses, and raw hand-held digital video obsessions. As brash, irreverent, and visceral as both the music and the movies themselves, Heavy Metal Movies is the ultimate guidebook to the complete molten musical cinema experience.
