The Merciless Book of Metal Lists

Nothing seems to get music fans riled up like a good list, and no group of music fans likes to get people riled up quite like metalheads, so The Merciless Book of Metal Lists ($15) seems only natural. This 200+ page book is filled with random lists covering such topics as sell-out bands, bad metal fashion, album covers with goats, as well as a forward from Slayer's Kerry King, an afterword from Philip Anselmo, and contributions from various metal personalities like Anthrax's Scott Ian, Exodus' Gary Holt, Soulfly's Max Cavalera, and Eddie Trunk. A great Father's Day gift, provided your Dad has a favorite Motörhead t-shirt.

  • The Conquest of Everest

    Given that over 5,000 ascents to the summit have been made by over 3,000 people, it might not seem like a big deal — but when Hillary and Norgay made their way to the Top of the World 60 years ago, it was indeed a BFD. The Conquest of Everest: Original Photographs from the Legendary First Ascent ($27) takes you inside this legendary event through photographs and other materials climber and photographer George Lowe, who was with Hillary and Norgay on that first expedition. In addition to the 167 photos and illustrations, the book also features contributions from Reinhold Messner, Sir Chris Bonington, Peter Hillary, Doug Scott, Stephen Venables, and Norbu Tenzing Norgay and the late Sir Edmund Hillary themselves. Great for history buffs, climbing enthusiasts, or for making you wonder if you'll ever do anything noteworthy in your lifetime.

  • Louder Than Hell

    If you don't like to listen to your music loud, then this book isn't for you. Crank the Slayer up to 11 and pick up a copy of Louder Than Hell: The Definitive Oral History of Metal ($21). This book covers the spectrum of metal's loudest and wildest with interviews of over 250 bands ranging from Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden to Metallica and Megadeth. Also hear from family, industry execs, and journalists — and from the people who knew them best (groupies, drug dealers). Nearly 50 pages of full-color photography bring to life the world of Nu Metal, Industrial Metal, Thrash Metal, Death Metal, Metalcore, and more. Warn the neighbors, because it's gonna get loud.
