Description by OLDIES.com:
Heavy Metal Thunder charts the course of the metal juggernaut through the prime canvas of its style and imagery: the album cover. From the glory days of the late '70s to the first modern metal movement (the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, or NWOBHM) through the MTV era, when glam and hair metal ruled, to the punk-inflected revolutions of thrash and Nu Metal (with a side trip into grunge) on to the gory contemporary subgenres of grindcore, black metal and doom, this chunky book is chock-full of covers that rule.
Page after page of mind-blowing imagery makes Heavy Metal Thunder a riot of epic art from music that continues to rock and roll (all night)!
