Metallica have sold over 100 million records worldwide and are the fifth-highest selling artists of all time. Their last album debuted at No.1 in 32 countries.
The release of a new Metallica album has become a major cultural event -- with discussion on arts programmes, and live appearances on BBC2's LATER and NBC's SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE.
Mick Wall is this country's foremost authority on all matters heavy rock.
Alongside contemporaries Slayer, Megadeath and Anthrax, Metallica came to prominence in the eighties as one of the 'big four' of thrash metal. Metallica were to thrash, though, what the Sex Pistols were to punk. Nearly thirty years on, their tale is one of alcohol, rule breaking and tragically early death. But allied to that are colossal sales figures for their records -- they are the fifth-highest selling recording artists of all time - and members with backgrounds that touch on jazz and classical music. Metallica, in fact, have garnered more critical acclaim than any heavy rock band since Led Zeppelin. Fresh from the critical and commercial success of WHEN GIANTS WALKED THE EARTH, Mick Wall takes a similar informed look at the band, a group he has known on and off since their formation in 1981.

ENTER NIGHT, Mick Wall's biography of Metallica confirms this grizzled veteran to be as engaged and waspishly authoritative a chronicler of metal's most hirsute behemoths as Barry Miles has been for the Beats
[A] flaming juggernaut of heavy-metal biog... the author writes a deceptively casual-looking, sincere but half-amused prose
It takes a writer of Mick Walls' pedigree and calibre... to present the whole wild, wonderful and emotionally draining tale all over again and make it as consistently fascinating and momentous as ENTER NIGHT... Until they return, this is the definitive account of heavy metal's biggest band of all. 8/10
Well written, slickly paced
