'Truly enlightening' ROCK SOUND

'ENTER NIGHT, Mick Wall's biography of Metallica confirms this grizzled veteran to be as engaged and waspishly authoritative a chronicler of metal's most hirsute behemoths as Barry Miles has been for the Beats' INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

Mick Wall moves on from Led Zeppelin to produce a definitive doorstop on Metallica.

Alongside contemporaries Slayer, Megadeath and Anthrax, Metallica came to prominence in the eighties as one of the 'big four' of thrash metal. Metallica were to thrash, though, what the Sex Pistols were to punk. Nearly thirty years on, their tale is one of alcohol, rule breaking and tragically early death. But allied to that are colossal sales figures for their records -- they are the fifth-highest selling recording artists of all time - and members with backgrounds that touch on jazz and classical music. Metallica, in fact, have garnered more critical acclaim than any heavy rock band since Led Zeppelin.

Fresh from the critical and commercial success of WHEN GIANTS WALKED THE EARTH, Mick Wall takes a similar informed look at the band, a group he has known on and off since their formation in 1981.

MEDIA REVIEWS

ENTER NIGHT, Mick Wall's biography of Metallica confirms this grizzled veteran to be as engaged and waspishly authoritative a chronicler of metal's most hirsute behemoths as Barry Miles has been for the Beats - INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

[A] flaming juggernaut of heavy-metal biog... the author writes a deceptively casual-looking, sincere but half-amused prose - GUARDIAN

It takes a writer of Mick Walls' pedigree and calibre... to present the whole wild, wonderful and emotionally draining tale all over again and make it as consistently fascinating and momentous as ENTER NIGHT... Until they return, this is the definitive account of heavy metal's biggest band of all - CLASSIC ROCK

well written, slickly paced - METRO

A must-have book for anyone interested in Metallica and anything heavy metal - LIVERPOOL ECHO

Wall has used his 30 year association with the band to write a well-researched, detailed book, combining personal experiences with interviews from family, friends and fellow musicians 4* - YORKSHIRE EVENING POST

Millions of words have been written on Metallica, but few journalists have been present at so many of the band's milestones... His [Wall's] eye for detail through the early years makes the book truly enlightening in the way it captures the character of the major players. - ROCK SOUND

A fine book, about a good band, by a brilliant writer. - LEICESTER MERCURY

Until the band themselves spill their guts, this is the definitive telling of their sometimes torrid tale; meticulously researched and garishly illuminated by the author's hilarious, harrowing first-hand experience. - METAL HAMMER
