METALLICA: Unauthorized Biography Due Next Month

METALLICA's unauthorized biography, "Justice For All: The Truth About Metallica" (view cover here), will be published by Omnibus Press on April 10. The book, McIver's sixth, is the result of over five years of research and contains unpublished material from around 75 interviews which the author, Joel McIver, carried out in order to tell the most in-depth history of the band ever published. "There's a huge gap in the market for a really detailed METALLICA biography," the author said in a previous press release. " 'Justice For All' addresses several of the most common METALLICA myths — what the band's real part was in the rise of thrash metal, what really happened on the night of bassist Cliff Burton's death, the truth about their softer, more recent music, and so on. I'm a huge METALLICA fan, but no punches are pulled — it's the book which METALLICA deserve". A short review of the 472-page hardback has been posted on the METALLICA fan site Encyclopedia Metallica.
