Well if you have the picture book from the Summer of 1983

Entitled Encyclopedia  MetallicA.

Then you already have the best book ever written of hard rock, with some cool articles on heavy metal.

I am not knocking the book, it is essential, but they hardly had there pulse on the heavy metal underground like

KICK*ASS Monthly did starting is

August 1981 until September 1986

This List for the top 100

Is Very Motorhead and Metalllca and Exodus – centric
