Críticas:

"Whether you're the sort of man who knows everything from who first threw the Devil Horns to the correct pronunciation of Yngwie Malmsteen, there is something fascinating to learn from Louder Than Hell ... Shed[s] new light on the making of Satan's Music." -- Esquire "Presents the collective memory of heavy metal through the ages and eras in the voices of the men who lived it ... It's an aficionado's delight." -- New York Daily News "Louder than Hell is a love letter to the misunderstood genre of heavy metal music, written by trusted companions who had a front row seat on the devil's rollercoaster. The definitive chronological testimony by the people who were there, including some who are no longer with us." -- Mark McGrath, Sugar Ray and co-host Extra "A great read and an instant classic." -- The Onion's A.V. Club "This is the best oral history I've read since Please Kill Me. Louder than Hell is the first book that really delivers the brutal truth from the mouths of the artists and key players themselves! I couldn't put it down." -- Matt Pinfield "Two devil horns up!" -- USA Today A compelling, first-person account of a seemingly unstoppable force ...the book reads like an extended, uncensored, shockingly satisfying episode of VH1's Behind the Music. -- Washington Post "An amazingly comprehensive book on all eras and genres of hard rock and heavy metal. The stories and attention to detail make it an instant must for anyone who ever was or is a fan." -- Eddie Trunk, DJ and host of That Metal Show on VH1 Classic Often hilarious, occasionally, 'God, I wish I hadn't read that!', sometimes profound, sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes infuriating ... no one holds back on any subject... you come away from this book with a crystal-clear vision of this world -- The Huffington Post "The authors inclusiveness give this examination a weight that is just as heavy as the music." -- Publishers Weekly "A who's who of heavy music ... What makes Louder Than Hell un-put-down-able are the stories ... Essential." -- Revolver (4 stars) "No one's gone quite as deep into the genre's recesses as this 746-page oral history, which covers everything from the birth of Black Sabbath to Dave Mustaine's departure from Metallica to the disaster that was Woodstock '99." -- Rolling Stone, four stars "Jon Wiederhorn and Katherine Turman know metal. Louder Than Hell is an amazing gathering of different breeds of heavy metal rockers telling the tales metal fans want to hear." -- Tom Morello, Rage Against the Machine "If you love metal, great stories, and music history told by the people who made it, then Louder than Hell is a must-read. This is the book every metal fan should own. -- Alice Cooper "Louder Than Hell comes straight from the twisted minds of rock icons and flows seamlessly through various eras of heavy metal...I really dig this book." -- Riki Rachtman "I've said thousands of times that reading 'totally sucks.' But this book does indeed not suck. Books on the history of even something as cool as metal can be a bit antiseptic and boring-not this one." -- Brendon Small, Dethklok "Who likes rock n roll here?? Well if you do, this is the book for you! ... This is the definitive chronicle of all that is heavy metal and I've read them all!" -- Chris Jericho, Fozzy "As definitive as it gets, bonding historical anecdotes to pieces of debauched mythology from the scene's platinum superstars and fringe icons ... as indispensable as a skull-adorned leather jacket." -- Entertainment Weekly, A-

Reseña del editor:

"Louder Than Hell" is an examination of the cultural phenomenon of heavy metal, a much-maligned genre that has not only stood the test of time, but has metamorphosed with each new generation of bands and audiences. Unlike many forms of popular music, whose fans are fickle and transitory, metalheads tend to embrace their favorite bands and follow them over decades. Metal is not only a pastime for these people; it's a lifestyle and obsession that permeates every aspect of their being. The book will feature over 250 interviews conducted by renowned journalists Jon Wiederhorn and Katherine Turman over the past 25 years. The book will include candid and confessional commentary from late icons of the genre. In addition, the book will feature comprehensive interviews with established metal musicians discussing their often-traumatic upbringings, musical histories, battles with substance abuse, sexual exploits, plus expert analysis of the heavy metal scene from the '60s to the present. Industry insiders (managers, record label A and R people, family members, friends, scenesters, groupies, journalists, porn stars and tattoo artists) will provide additional insight.
