Featuring 20 years of Satanic verses, forgotten pioneers and monster riffs, The Story of Metal Volume 1 charts the birth of heavy metal and its unstoppable rise. From the makers of Classic Rock and Metal Hammer, this is a special you won't want to miss.
Split into three sections – The Birth, The Explosion and How Metal Went Mainstream – The Story of Metal tells the inside story of the cult heroes and pioneering bands that conquered the world. Beginning with interviews with the bands that forged metal (Blue Cheer, Steppenwolf, Captain Beyond, Sir Lord Baltimore, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath…), this special edition then takes you through the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) explosion of the late 70s (with Iron Maiden, Saxon, Judas Priest) and lesser-known heroes like Venom and Diamond Head. The LA glam pop-metal scene of the 80s is represented with Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott and Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx looking back, plus inside stories on Ratt, Aerosmith in the 80s and more.
