Metallica to publish children’s book, The ABCs of Metallica

[From Ben Beaumont-Thomas at The Guardian]

Illustrated book tells the history of the metal band, and will benefit their charity All Within My Hands

Metallica, the metal band known for their toxic rivalries, substance misuse and songs entitled Leper Messiah, Harvester of Sorrow and My Friend of Misery, have entered the world of children’s publishing.

The illustrated book The ABCs of Metallica will be published on 26 November, to benefit the band’s charity foundation All Within My Hands. The band wrote it in collaboration with author Howie Abrams, and it is illustrated by Michael “Kaves” McLeer.

The band described the book on their website, saying: “Including rhymes and illustrations, The ABCs of Metallica looks back at the history of the band from, duh, A to Z! Each letter of the alphabet highlights a moment along our journey from Garage Days to Master of Puppets to fun facts about us.”

    METALLICA One (Super rare 1989 Japanese second pressing 3" CD single, also including Breadfan, within an intact snap-pack picture sleeve and fold-out lyric insert. You must be wondering, what makes this so rare? Well, this format was issued only in Japan, so most rock & metal singles very hard to find. This particular single is usually found with a red playing surface to the disc, however this example has a standard silver colour. We had to dig deep into the internet to try and find out any details, with not much luck at all. This is a genuine pressing with all the correct matrices on the disc, the sleeve displays minimal wear along with the lyric insert, and the disc remains very clean and free from any marks on the playing surface. An amazing find and much harder to find than the red version. This is only the second copy we have ever seen! 10EP-3077)
