ALL PENS BLAZING – A ROCK & HEAVY METAL WRITER’S HANDBOOK

VOLUMES 1 & II

BY NEIL DANIELS

CHRONICLING OVER FOUR DECADES OF ROCK & HEAVY METAL JOURNALISM

IF YOU WANNA LEARN ABOUT THE HISTORY OF METAL MAGAZINES THIS IS THE PLACE TO LEARN…

Ever wondered what it takes to be a heavy metal journalist? In these comprehensive collections, Neil Daniels has interviewed 100+ of the world’s most successful writers of heavy metal and hard rock. Many of these writers are successful biographers, editors and long-standing freelancers who have interviewed some of the genre’s leading artists from KISS to Metallica and Black Sabbath to Slayer. They’ve travelled the world over, lived in tour buses, got drunk with their idols, attended some of the greatest gigs in history and are still alive to tell the tale. It’s all here; the wild stories, the anecdotes…and the advice!

All Pens Blazing offers a potted history of the genre as well as the publishing industry from the legendary Sounds and Melody Maker to metal bibles Kerrang! and Metal Hammer to modern day magazines like Terrorizer, Powerplay and Classic Rock. There’s also a wealth of information on fanzines and webzines as well as long-gone magazines like Metal Forces, RIP and RAW. These books are worthy historical documents for the serious enthusiast and can be used as a handy reference tool for the aspiring metal writer.
