Summary
"With roots in blues, progressive, and psychedelic rock, heavy metal developed in the 1960s and 1970s as a highly amplified sound with massive riffs and extended guitar solos before developing into a multiheaded hydra with many different genres. Heavy Metal: The Story in Pictures looks at this ancient history but concentrates on the last thirty years that have seed the splintering of the genre into a myriad forms from death metal to retro metal by way of black metal, power metal, doom metal, gothic metal, glam metal, alternative metal, nu metal, folk metal, Viking metal, drone metal, sludge metal, and extreme metal"--Back cover
