Dave Lombardo, legendary drummer of SLAYER, has responded with an early reaction to dozens of early photos of his band in the upcoming photo book Murder in the Front Row: Shots From the Bay Area Thrash Metal Epicenter, by Harald Oimoen and Brian Lew.

Lombardo says: “Murder in the Front Row captures the true essence of thrash metal in its embryonic stage. These photographs take me on a tour down memory lane, bringing back many laughs, and causing comments like, ‘I don’t remember that!'”

Coming in December from Bazillion Points Books, Murder in the Front Row is a spectacular large-format 272-page view inside “the metal scene that banged those heads that did not bang.” Murder in the Front Row includes over 400 early color and black-and-white photos of Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Exodus, Possessed, Death Angel, Legacy/Testament, Vio-lence, D.R.I., Blind Illusion, Forbidden, and many others. The book will be available December 2011, wherever books and sold, and is available for preorder now with a limited two-sided exclusive poster-size dustjacket at this location:
