HOWIE ABRAMS AND SACHA JENKINS

The Merciless Book Of Metal Lists

(Abrams Books)

Reviewed by : Greg Pratt
Rating : 9.0

Here's why this book is tons of fun: it's filled with tons of fun lists, about metal. When the authors do things like rate the best guitar tones ever (Tony IoWE KNOW), the eyes glaze over. But when this book, which is laid out in a fun, enjoyable manner, does things like get BRUTAL TRUTH bassist Danny Lilker to list the top five worst all-time trends in metal or when the authors lay down the top 25 most fucked-up song titles by Cannibal Corpse it's totally great. And this thing is filled with hilarious lists like that. The number six thing "people say to start a conversation with me" by Scott Ian of Anthrax: "I used to listen to you." The list of "70 metal songs about metal" would make the best iTunes playlist ever. "10 reasons Anthrax should never be associated with hardcore" by a dude from Madball? Classic. Plus, thanks to this book, I now know that Goo Goo Dolls and Cannibal Corpse have played shows together. Weird (actually, the whole "Top 10 obscure Metal Blade Records facts" is wildly interesting). Also thanks to this book, I've seen the most insane metal logo of all time (belonging to the insanely named KORGONTHURUS) and I've read a list of the best Paul Baloff stage banter of all time. The afterward from one Phil Anselmo is surprisingly touching, and appropriately nerdy: "Slayer were definitely pushing the satanic shtick full throttle, and in my heart, I wished they would take a cue from Metallica’s guitar sounds," he says. Yes, metalheads, you pretty much need to own The Merciless Book Of Metal Lists. (Perhaps the most hilarious list on here is the list of "very best qualities of Metallica's Load and Reload albums," but I'm not spoiling it here.)
