Justice For All - The Truth About Metallica

Front Cover
Omnibus Press, May 6, 2010 - Music - 410 pages
8 Reviews
When the first edition of this book was published in 2004, it caused enormous controversy, with author Joel McIver's account of Metallica's rise and fall exposing the multiple myths that had surrounded the band for years.

For the first time, a book dared to tell the unvarnished truth about their early life on the San Francisco circuit, their heyday as the world's most uncompromising metal band and the notorious controversies which plagued their later years.

Napster, Playboy, Rehab, St Anger and their recent return to form with Death Magnetic are all covered in this updated edition which features brand new interviews on top of the original, still-groundbreaking material. This is the real Metallica story.

Review: Justice for All: The Truth about Metallica

User Review  - Justin - Goodreads

Like the band, you'll like this book. I learnt a lot I didn't know, although I did learn quickly that I didn't always agree with the author's own opinions which intersperse the book throughout. This book is now outdated as the band have released more stuff, but still lightweight enjoyable stuff. Read full review
