Metallica: "Birth School Metallica Death: Volume II" Coming Fall 2014

Da Capo Press has announced that it will publish a two-volume biography of the biggest hard rock band in the world, Metallica. "Birth School Metallica Death: Volume I" by Paul Brannigan and Ian Winwood will hit bookstores in the fall of 2013. "Birth School Metallica Death: Volume II" will land in the fall of 2014.

Paul Brannigan is the acclaimed author of Da Capo's "This Is A Call: The Life And Times Of Dave Grohl". Ian Winwood is a music journalist. Their book will be the most comprehensive, complete, authoritative, and compelling narrative biography of Metallica to date, and will be based on 75 hours of rare interviews.

Divided into two distinct books, "Volume I" will cover Metallica's formative years in the underground, from the unassailable one-two-three punch of speed metal classics "Ride The Lightning", "Kill 'Em All" and"Master Of Puppets" to the mainstream breakthrough heralded by "...And Justice For All" and realized with the multi-platinum success of the "black" album. "Volume II" will cover Metallica after breaking through to the mainstream, the megatours, excess, and many challenges and successes that followed.
