From Martin C. Strong, the man who brought you The Great Rock Discography (now in its fifth edition), comes the next indispensable installment in the ongoing chronicle of music's rich tapestry: The Great Metal Discography. Whether you're a seasoned Sabbath stalwart or a death-metal debutante, this authoritative almanac is the ultimate guide to amplified guitar abuse in all its multifarious guises, guiding you fearlessly, and often irreverently, through "hard rock," "heavy metal," "thrash metal," "funk metal," death metal," "hardcore," "grindcore," "grunge," "black metal," and more. Fully revised and updated to the end of 2000, The Great Metal Discography contains over one thousand individual entries. Each entry features complete discographies that detail every release in all formats, full track listings for each album, B-sides for each single, expanded biographies and band histories, catalog ordering numbers, top U.S. and U.K. chart positions, and recommendations of must-have recordings and essential listening. From Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith and AC/DC, to Motorhead and Iron Maiden, Nirvana and Marilyn Manson, this book has the lowdown on everyone who ever turned the amplifier up to eleven. "The discographical book every self-respecting Classic Rock reader should have on their bookshelf." -- Classic Rock

I was pretty disappointed by this book. First of all,there are a bunch of omissions(Where's Grave Digger?). Secondly,there are way too many bands in here that just don't belong in a book about heavy metal(Bryan Adams,Prodigy,Loverboy,Prism). He also considers many bands "hard rock" when they are actually metal bands. I think this book could have been better if it was written by a serious metal fan rather than a music generalist like Martin Strong. However,the track listings are very useful for trivia purposes,and the illustrations(caricatures of different bands)are great fun. Try Headbangers:The Worldwide Megabook Of Heavy Metal Bands for a much better book of this kind.

I've heard it said that people are upset with some of Martin Strong's album ratings, but I think that is missing the point by a long shot. This isn't a book to be bought for it's reviews. It's to be bought and savored for it's unbelievable wealth of discographical (?) information. I've logged countless hours on the toilet with a Highlighter running through the bands and rediscovering songs that I had long forgotten. The Rebel MC's books hold down a place of honor in my music library, right next to Joel Whitburn's Billboard books. Both of labours of love that I can identify with. (And the fact that you can STEAL this one for $1.99 just KILLS me! DO IT!)

This book has an incredible amount of information in it. Essential for rock fans and metalheads.

If you like learning about and hearing about hard rock bands then you need to get this book. It tells you a lot about the bands you have heard of. It tells you even more about the bands you have not. It is invaluable to any serious collector of hard rock music. You will have many enjoyable hours of discovering new bands and their histories.

It's easy to find faults with this kind of work, but you have to admire Martin Strong's exhaustive works. You may disagree with his selections and ratings, but that's part of the experience. Besides, agreeing with people is very dull
There are no other reference books that can match these, the full tracklistings being one of the main strengths. You can spend hours leafing through aimlessly, always finding something new and absorbing
Can't praise this one highly enough

This book contains some good info, like the actual names of many musicians, bands' lineup changes, and other things that are lacking in Martin Popoff's book. However, as the above review mentions, there are TONS of bands not mentioned, too many bands that are in NO WAY metal (Prodigy??? What the hell are they doing in here?), an essay style that makes poor attempts at humor at the sacrifice of info and history (this IS a discography, right?), and a serious slant towards bands that he curiously likes (see Prodigy - he gives one of their albums a VERY rare "9" while giving Metallica's Ride the Lightning an "8" - YEAH RIGHT). In fact, most of the bands and albums he lists hover around the 5-6 out of ten. Which begs the question, if he likes Prodigy and Smashing Pumpkins so much, and gives mediocre ratings on most metal albums, whe did he put the word METAL in the title? This guy does not seem to be much of a metal fan; they need to retitle this book THE NOT-SO-GREAT, MOSTLY HARD ROCK MUSINGS AND DISCOGRAPHY.

WOW, there is a lot of information here. I've been a Metal DJ for 10 years, and this book is really helpful as to 'who played with who and for how long and when they left said band'. Some of the names are spelled wrong and some of the band members are listed as playing instruments they didn't play, but overall this is a nice companion reference book .
from the roots on up, this book has it all. sure, it delves into the hard rock realm a bit, but it does not detract from the accuracy, range, and intelligence of this reference book. this book is far superior to anything martin popoff has written. it is thorough and educational. i've been an active participant in the metal scene for more that 15 years, and this book had a thing or two to teach me. there are some ommissions, but that's what updated editions are for. get this book. learn your history and see your future.
