From the colourful and outlandish use of visuals for album artwork and posters, to the immediately recognizable logos of the bands involved, there's a close-knit relationship between the riffs which thunder from the guitar and the images which have come to represent the songs and anthems of metal music.
Showcases 400 of the finest examples of metal poster and cover art and is the first book ever to concentrate specifically on work created by artists working in this genre of music.
