Heavy Sounds in the West

It’s time to turn everything up to eleven, throw the horns high, sell your soul to Satan and peel off some face melting riffs with Earth Island Books who are about to publish Hans Verbeke and Onno Hesselink’s comprehensive guide to the history of heavy metal in Belgium, Heavy Sounds in the West.


Packed full of rare and unseen photographs, first hand accounts and stories from the labels, fans, promoters and bands who were there and featuring a killer Jeff Hanneman cover, this 400 page metal leviathan is a must read tome for anyone who likes their music hard and heavy.


Due to be published on the 12th of June, which for you non-metal folks out there falls smack bang in the middle of Metallica tribute week, Heavy Sounds in the West is now available for pre-order.
