Formed in Los Angeles in 1981, Metallica has become the single bestselling heavy metal act in music history, with more than 100 million album sales to its credit. Now based in the San Francisco Bay Area, the band remains hugely popular worldwide: in 2009, Metallica’s 1991 self-titled LP became the bestselling album of the SoundScan era.
 
In this book, the first complete illustrated treatment of the band, acclaimed heavy metal journalist Martin Popoff leads a roster of respected heavy metal writers to take on Metallica’s entire history, analyzing each of the group’s ten studio albums (including 2011’s LuLu collaboration with Lou Reed) and providing a complete discography. More than 300 images complement extensive band stories: their formative years spent woodshedding in the clubs of Los Angeles, tragedies like the death of founding bassist Cliff Burton, the triumphs of multiple platinum recordings, personnel changes like the departures of Dave Mustaine and Jason Newsted, and tours covering the world over. Live-performance and candid off-stage photographs are accompanied by a stunning selection of memorabilia, including gig posters, concert tees, picture sleeves, backstage passes, buttons, ticket stubs, and more.
 
By following the same critically acclaimed, high-quality format as Voyageur Press’ previous books on Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Queen, Iron Maiden, and others, Metallica: The Complete Illustrated History is the authoritative tribute to one of history’s most successful and admired heavy metal bands.

Martin Popoff has been described as the world's most famous heavy-metal journalist. He has penned more than 40 books on hard rock, heavy metal, and record collecting, including Voyageur Press' Rush: The Illustrated History. He has also worked in film and television, his most recent projects being Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage and VH1's Metal Evolution. He lives in Toronto with his wife and son. www.martinpopoff.com www.bravewords.com

"The resulting tome is a visual treat for the Metallica fan, whether hardcore or passing." - Pop Matters
"There are other Metallica books out there...but none combine the amount of quality rare photos of the band live and in the studio with band collectibles combined with a list of the entire Metallica canon-every album, single, ep and video." - TheyWillRockYou.com

"As if this book weren’t already a must have for every head banger out there, Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister decided to pen the intro to this one. Now it’s pretty much a standard issue textbook for the misunderstood." - Neufutur.com
