  • A provocative study of the thinking mans metal band, this book:

  • Maps out the connections between Aristotle, Nietzsche, Marx, Kierkegaard, and Metallica, to demonstrate the bands philosophical significance
  • Uses themes in Metallicas work to illuminate topics such as freedom, truth, identity, existentialism, questions of life and death, metaphysics, epistemology, the mind-body problem, morality, justice, and what we owe one another
  • Draws on Metallicas lyrical content, Lars Ulrichs relationship with Napster, as well as the documentary Some Kind of Monster
  • Serves as a guide for thinking through the work of one of the greatest rock bands of all time

      "nonsence"

      if you are a metalice fan then this book is not for you, its way to deep and uninteresting. and misses the point.
