HEAVY METAL MOVIES (Book): The 666 Most Headbanging Films of All-Time From Anvil to Zardoz, by Mike McPadden

ISBN 978-1-935950-06-6
Deluxe trade paperback with roughly 352pp plus color insert
Release Date: Fall 2012

Wherever heavy metal has gone, the movies have followed—and blazed ferocious new celluloid trails, from concert movies and trippy midnight flicks at the dawn of heaviosity, through inspirational depictions of ancient times and future armageddons, right up to the raw hand-held video productions of today.

Heavy Metal Movies rounds up, reviews, and canonizes all known incidents of the heavy metal in the motion pictures:

• Performance films
• Feature documentaries
• Occult rock-n-roll horror
• Headbanger characters
• Soundtrack standouts
• Namesake inspirations
• Lyrical references
• Aesthetic archetypes and more

As brash, irreverent and visceral as both the music and the movies themselves, Heavy Metal Movies is the ultimate guidebook to the complete molten musical cinema experience.

Mike McPadden is the head writer at In the 1990s, he published the glandmark sleaze-zine Happyland under the pen(is) name Selwyn Harris. Other gigs include Hustler, Celebrity Skin, and writing screenplays (both hard and softcore) for director Gregory Dark. Metal cred comes from manning rhythm guitar and mounting live nude sodomy circuses for Chicago psych-noise miscreants Gays in the Military throughout the 2000s.
