The staff here at Metal-Rules support metal in all it's forms, audio, visual and even literature. Often writers can give additional academic credibility to our genre which at times suffers from a negative reputation and we support their efforts and enjoy reading their books. In recognition of the dramatic increase in metal-related books we have developed this unique section dedicated to reviews and opinions about Heavy Metal literature and interviews with authors and publishers.

On this page you will find a quick summary of various titles and links to further in-depth reviews of these fine publications and more.
