Martin Popoff, the author of more books on heavy metal than anybody in the world, delves into topics and debates that may be inappropriate for a traditional biography but live, breathe, and shout right here. Since Doom Let Loose, Popoff’s first Black Sabbath book and widely considered the definitive biography of the band, the author has conducted many additional Sabbath-related interviews. Like a rabid detective unearthing (and sometimes debunking) ancient Sabbath lore, he valiantly covers new ground, applying academic rigor but then wildly sounding off with lurid opinion. This book is pieced together in topical chapters thick with the tales beneath the skin and all that goofy stuff that will leave metal-heads arguing over for generations to come.
