When I was in fifth grade I was first introduced into the world of Metallica by hearing “Enter Sandman” on my friends walkman. I wasn’t immaterially drawn to it, yet a year or two later after hearing the Master Of Puppets album (which later became my favorite album) I became more and more interested. When Reload came out in 1997 I decided that it was time to begin buying the albums. About a year later I owned all the albums, picture disks, and the 1993 box set. I decided it was then time to learn a little more about the history of Metallica. I got this book and began reading it. Immaterially I was drawn in a couldn’t stop reading. It gave a beautiful history of rock in general and gave every little detail of Metallica possible from the garage to the snake pit. Whether it be the name “The Frayed Ends” that Metallica used as there alias when playing at clubs, or the attempted music videos that failed. It gives great quotes from the band and some of the most prominent names in rock. I think every Metallica fan has to read this book. If you read one thing this year, make it this book. You wont regret it.
5.0 out of 5 stars This is the book on the background of Metallica.,
I have always been a fan of Metallica, ever since I heard “Nothing Else Matters” when I was 9. I was flipping through the tv, when I stopped at MTV. It was playing on that channel. Now I don’t know why I was attracted to this song, this type of music, but I just knew that I liked it. My first Metallica cd was “The Black Album”, released in 1991 (aka “Metallica”). Then “Load” followed, and then their best cd, “Reload”. Which why now, a heavy Metallica fan, I recently bought this book. I was curious as to how Metallica got started, and why they’re so damn good. This book answered all my questions. Its neat how they start out in a garage, now, they are the monsters of heavy metal. Details, this book has loads of details. From how James Hetfield, the lead singer playing rhythm guitar, can’t read sheet music (but still rocks), to the band only being alloted five dollars a week from their contracters, this book tells all. As Lars Ulrich (drummer) says, “Metallica is it. When that ceases, thats it.”. And hes right.
5.0 out of 5 stars my opinion on The frayed ends of metal,
i thought this was an excellent book, the only one i’ve read cover to cover and enjoyed. I have been a metallica fan for a long time and i thought i knew a lot about them but when i read this book i found a lot more that i didn’t know that was very interesting. I would highly recommend it to a metallica fan or anyone.
5.0 out of 5 stars This book rocks,
