Crossfire’s own James Sherry and partner in crime Neil Aldis have released their very own heavy metal book, simply titled: Heavy Metal Thunder – Album Covers That Rocked The World.
The 256 page book contains over 350 colour photos choreographing some of heavy metal’s best loved album covers since the genre’s birth over 35 years ago. Interviews with both the artists and bands involved are included, with pieces in question ranging from the greats such as Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, right up to modern day heavyweights Slipknot and Limp Bizkit among others.
Chapters include: Here Come the Americans – Hair Metal and Sex; Fist Bangin’ Mania and Punk Takes Effect!
The book is in stores now, with more information available at www.octopus-publishing.co.uk
Look out for an interview in this Friday’s Guardian with Mr Sherry and if you wanna congratulate him personally go here.
