Enhver, der har oplevet Rammstein live, kender den overvældende følelse, som deres professionelle iscenesættelse af sangene skaber. Det er voldsomt og velplanlagt. Wicke går tæt på Rammsteins fascinerende koncerter og undersøger, hvordan forsangeren Lindemann og resten af bandet skaber en totaloplevelse af lyd, lys, billeder og performance.Men bogen er meget mere end det. Bandmedlemmernes østtyske oprindelse spiller en stor rolle i deres musik, og vi får en flot skildring af deres debut i det østtyske punkmiljø og de efterfølgende mange kontroverser med de tyske myndigheder og medier. Vi kommer også med Rammstein i lydstudierne, hvor det bliver klart, hvor topprofessionelt bandet arbejder - intet er overladt til tilfældighederne. En anmelder kaldte bogen for det klogeste og mest seriøse, der indtil nu er skrevet om Rammstein.
Tonight It's a World We Bury explores a range of tendencies centralto black metal and uncovers their potential as critiques of capitalism.
Featuring exclusive interviews with key figures, from Napalm Death vocalist Barney Greenway to guitarist Bill Steer of Gentlemans Pistols, Carcass, and Napalm Death, this is your guide through the history of death metal.Guitars playing abrasive, discordant riffs, the thunderous double-kick of the drums acting like an accelerated heartbeat, and porcine, guttural vocals pummeling twisted lyrics. Courting controversy from inception to its modern day iteration, death metal presents a number of contradictions: Driven and adventurous musicians compete to make uncomfortable noises; it is crude and far beyond parody and yet consistently popular; and the music is pig-headedly uncommercial despite making a few labels, albeit briefly, wealthy. This book explores the history and methodology of the genre, charting its aims and intentions, its crossovers to the mainstream, successes and failures, and tracks how it developed from the bedrooms of Birmingham and Florida to the near-mainstream, to the murky cult status it enjoys today.
Frank Bello, bassist with the legendary New York thrash metal band Anthrax since 1984, has sold over ten million albums, travelled the globe more times than he cares to count, and enthralled audiences from the world's biggest stages. His long-awaited memoir would be a gripping read even if its pages only contained stories about his life as a recording and touring musician. While those stories are indeed included-and will blow your mind-Bello also focuses on deeper subjects in Fathers, Brothers, and Sons. Once you've heard his life story, you'll understand why.Born into a family of five, Frank grew up in difficult circumstances. His father abandoned his wife and children, and Frank's mother moved heaven and earth to keep them fed and educated. Left with no male role model, Frank found inspiration in heavy metal bass players, following their example and forging a career with Anthrax from his early teens-first as a roadie, and then as the group's bass player.International stardom came Frank's way by the mid-to-late 1980s, when he was still in his early twenties, but tragedy struck in 1996 when his brother Anthony was murdered in New York. Although the case went to trial, the suspected killer was released without charge after a witness, intimidated by violent elements, withdrew his testimony.Two decades later, Frank is a father himself to a young son. Like many men who grew up without the guidance of a dad, he asks himself important questions about the meaning of fatherhood and how to do the job well. This is the wisdom which Fathers, Brothers, and Sons offers readers.Despite the emotive nature of these topics, Fathers, Brothers, and Sons is a funny, entertaining read. A man with a keen sense of humor and the perspective to know how surreal his story has been, Frank doesn't preach or seek sympathy in his book. Instead, he simply passes on the wisdom gained from a lifetime of turbulence, paying tribute to his loved ones in a way that will resonate with us all.
Efter sin mors død arvede heavy metal-musikeren Ryan nogle sære ting – herunder nogle mystiske gamle tegninger og en fugtskadet dagbog fra hendes ungdom. Hans mor havde altid været en stille, hemmelighedsfuld lille dame. Lidt mærkværdig, ville de fleste nok mene. Sær.Han havde altid følt, at hun skjulte noget. Der var hemmeligheder i hans familie. Hemmeligheder, hans mor troede, hun kunne tage med sig i graven … Men det var langtfra tilfældet. De hemmeligheder skulle vise sig at være hjemsøgende. De skulle vise sig at hive de grimmeste sider af menneskeligheden op til overfladen. Udover at skabe en underholdende fortælling, er romanens formål at sætte gang i en masse filosofiske overvejelser og herunder provokere ideen om, hvad der egentlig er godt og ondt – rigtigt og forkert. Der er derfor et diskret fokus på netop ideen bag ’det gode og det onde’ igennem mere flydende begreber som eksempelvis ’hævn’.
Biographie über den Ausnahmemusiker und die Heavy Metal Legende Cliff BurtonDer Titel "To Live Is To Die" geht auf das gleichnamige Instrumentalstück zurück, das auf "...And Justice For All" veröffentlicht wurde. Weggefährten kommen darin zu Wort. Der Autor Joel McIver setzte sich für die Recherchen zur Biografie mit alten Weggefährten Burtons zusammen und lässt diese ausgiebig zu Wort kommen, etwa "Master of Puppets"-Produzent Fleming Rasmussen, Fotograf Ross Halfin und Brian Slagel (Metal Blade). Das Vorwort des Buches verfasste Metallica-Gitarrist Kirk Hammett, der Burton innerhalb der Band am nächsten stand und so einen intimen Einblick in das Innerste der Metal-Legende gibt.Für die Entwicklung von Metallica war Cliff Burton so etwas wie die graue Eminenz im Hintergrund. Neben seinem Bass-Spiel machten ihn seine kompromisslose Art gegenüber Kommerz zu einem Ausnahmemusiker. Obwohl er nur etwas mehr als drei Jahre Teil von Metallica war, ist sein Anteil an der Entwicklung des typischen Metallica-Sounds erheblich. Am 27. September 1986 starb Metallica-Mitglied Cliff Burton während einer Tournee-Reise von Stockholm nach Kopenhagen. Mit dem Tod des Bassisten fand eine hoffnungsvolle Karriere ihr tragisches und unwiederbringliches Ende. "Es ist eine Ehre, dass Kirk an der Cliff Burton-Biografie mitgearbeitet hat", befindet Autor McIver.

On Ice-T's 1991 classic O.G. Original Gangster, he introduced his all-Black hardcore band Body Count with lead guitarist Ernie C, bringing them on the first-ever Lollapalooza tour that summer. The next year, Body Count's self-titled debut album, rounded out by rhythm guitarist D-Roc the Executioner, bassist Mooseman, and drummer Beatmaster V, made them the most incendiary band in the world, confronting white supremacy and police brutality with pulverizing songs that shattered musical boundaries. Body Count's rage and shock humor sparked nationwide protests and boycotts, including death threats, censure from the federal government, a spot on the FBI National Threat list, and a denunciation by the President of the United States. The album was removed from stores and remains banned to this day, but decades later Body Count are performing to theirbiggest audiences and greatest acclaim, pulling off one of the most remarkable comebacks in punk or metal history.Drawn from years of research and dozens of new interviews, this is the story of a band of high school friends who revolutionized modern music, brought explosive live performances, and raised questions America's lawmakers didn't want to answer, overcoming some of the country's most powerful forces to reshape the world's cultural conversation.
Working from and with countries spanning Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Oceania, and Indigenous Nations, the contributors of this collection reflect on the social roles of metal music and stress how it faces oppressive experiences and aims to build a better world.

The 1980s "was an era where the musical and cultural ideals of rebellion and freedom of the great rock 'n' roll of the '50s, '60s, and '70s were taken to dizzying heights of neon excess. Attention to songcraft, showmanship, and musical virtuosity (especially in the realm of the electric guitar) were at an all-time high, and radio and MTV were delivering the goods en masse to the corn-fed children of America and beyond. Time hasn't always been kind to artists of that gold and platinum era, but [this book] analyzes the sonic evolution, musical diversity, and artistic intention of '80s commercial hard rock through interviews with members of such hard rock luminaries as Twisted Sister, Def Leppard, Poison, Whitesnake, Ratt, Skid Row, Quiet Riot, Guns N' Roses, Dokken, Mr. Big, and others"--

Now with a new chapterDave Mustaine is the first to admit that he's bottomed out a few times in his dark and twisted speed metal version of a Dickensian life. Impoverished, transient childhood? Check. Abusive, alcoholic parent? Check. Mind-f**king religious weirdness (in his case the extremes of the Jehovah's Witnesses and satanism)? Check. Alcoholism, drug addiction, homelessness? Check, check, Check. Soul-crushing professional and artistic setbacks? Check. Rehab? Check (seventeen times, give or take). Near-death experience? Check that one, too. James Hetfield, with whom many years ago Mustaine founded a band known as Metallica, once observed, with some incredulity, that Mustaine must have been born with a horseshoe up his ass. That's how lucky he is to be pulling breath after so many close calls. But here's the thing about having a horseshoe lodged in your rectum: It also hurts like hell. And you never forget it's there. Mustaine has battled it all to achieve dizzying heights. From the early, heady days of Metallica, being unceremoniously let go only to become a world-famous rock star?founder, front man, singer, songwriter, and guitarist (and de facto CEO) for Megadeth, one of the most popular bands in heavy metal?Mustaine's story will inspire, stun, and terrify.
