Writer's Quest To Promote Underground Heavy Metal Explored In 'Metal Generation' Book

December 24, 2007

Darryl J. Keck, former editor of Amplified Assault and High Volume magazines, has penned a new book called "Metal Generation".

According to Keck, "Metal Generation" is "a heavy metal writer's journey through the past twenty-five years with this music. This is a first-hand perspective of the quest to promote underground heavy metal and the multiple struggles that went with it. While most historical books on heavy metal center on the top-drawing arena acts like METALLICA, JUDAS PRIEST, and DEF LEPPARD, 'Metal Generation' guides you to bands, such as ODIN, ANVIL, HITTMAN, CRIMSON GLORY, MANOWAR, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, ACCEPT, KING DIAMOND, and ARMORED SAINT that were just as talented, but never gained that level of popularity. This book covers the reasons why I feel some bands made it, while others never climbed beyond their core audience or faded into obscurity. 'Metal Generation' is a political, gritty, and enlightening look at the side of the music most fans didn t get to see. It features viewpoints from members of LIZZY BORDEN, ARMORED SAINT, MACHINE HEAD, ODIN, PRONG, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, DARK ANGEL, etc."
