"Eddie Trunk's Essential Hard Rock And Heavy Metal Volume II" was made available on September 24, 2013 via Abrams Image, a division of Abrams.
In a recent interview with Pop Break, Trunk stated about "Eddie Trunk's Essential Hard Rock And Heavy Metal Volume II": "It is an exact sequel of the first book. It’s the same publisher. It's the same format, same exact layout, the discography, the 'Did You Know' stuff, and, of course, the exclusive live photography.
"So many people enjoyed the layout of the first book, how easy it was to read. So we didn't mess with the formula that people really liked. The only difference is the bands are completely different. The bands are a little deeper, a little less mainstream. So it's an out-and-out sequel. It's going to make a great companion piece to the first."
Trunk is the host of VH1 Classic's "That Metal Show" and is heard on two weekly radio shows: "Eddie Trunk Live", which airs on SiriusXM Radio's Ozzy's Boneyard channel, and the FM-syndicated "Eddie Trunk Rocks", broadcast live in New York City on Q104.3. He lives in New Jersey.
