This book aspires to be heavy metal's go-to resource. However, while it does contain a majority of the genre's bands, figures, and terminology, its many conspicuous omissions, like Pantera, Tool, and Nirvana, prevent it from being the definitive subject authority. Still, information provided by Cogan (The Encyclopedia of Punk) and independent music scholar Phillips is enlightening and reveals the personalities driving the rise, fall, resurrection, and subsistence of profiled bands. A worthy alternative is Deena Weinstein's historical Heavy Metal: The Music and Its Culture.
