This is a first for B.A.N. while we have done a few book reviews this is the first time we've plugged a newly released book. Check it out.
As of the 6th of January, the new book "From The Minds of Madness: The Origins of Heavy Metal Band Names" by Blair Gibson is out. This book is a compilation of testimony from members of over 350 bands, about the origin of the name of their band. The bands come from all corners of the heavy music spectrum, including B.A.N. favourites Yawning Man, Whores of Tijuana, Truckfighters and Totimoshi. Awesome idea and a nice H.P. Lovecraft reference in the title. We hope this book gets the ball rolling for Blair. Cheers!
