Ride The Lightning


“I have followed Metallica’s ascent to the top for over twenty-five years...”
Brian Tatler (Diamond Head)

Metallica are the biggest American metal band in the world. Period. They literally changed the face of metal. They didn’t do it with just one album; they did over a period of time. They built a fanbase and conquered the metal world all almost single-handedly. Metallica had a passion for metal; it wasn’t about the scene, or the money, or even the booze and women – it was all about the music. It was about metal. Heavy metal.

This book – told in an A to Z format – is an easy going guide to the history of Metallica. It’s a scrapbook of sorts; featuring the musicians, the music, the tours, the influences and those who have been influenced by the band, however directly or indirectly. It is a compilation of lists, articles and reviews written over the past several years as well as some new pieces. It does not include every album or song, but some of the hits (and misses) as well as the people that made the music; those on and off stage, and the musicians (both past and present) who made the band what it is today.

Metallica – A Thrash Metal Salute is a book on metal for metal fans.

Enjoy the latest collection of reviews and interviews from Neil Daniels.


“Read as widely as you can. Read the classics of your field and of others too. Observe wherever you go and the people you meet – how they really speak, how they behave. Base your characters on your observations, not on how people have behaved in fiction (especially the conventional kind). Tell as much of the truth as you possibly can. Enjoy language.”

RAMSEY CAMPBELL (author of The Doll Who Ate His Mother)

“Don’t get so hung up on being a writer (ie: going to parties, conventions, award ceremonies) that you skimp on doing the writing (the sat-at-a-desk bit).”

KIM NEWMAN (author of Anno Dracula)

“It’s also a very difficult way to make a living – never knowing when the next cheque’s showing up is no fun. There are a lot of people out there who’d like your job, and most editors and publishers know that, and aren’t afraid to take advantage of it. So expect to be jerked around by idiots (no difference there from most jobs I guess) and to have more than a few lean months living off toast and blind optimism. If you understand all of that, and still fancy picking up the proverbial pen, then good luck – you’ll need it – in my experience shit floats rather more buoyantly than cream!”

GAVIN BADDELEY (author of Lucifer Rising: A Book of Sin, Devil Worship And Rock n' Roll)

“I'd start with the dictionary then take it from there. Just to read is enough. Newspapers. Poetry. Classic novels. Hello! Magazine. Pornography. Anything and everything.”

BEN MYERS (author of The Missing Kidney)

“Believe in yourself, tell the truth and don’t give up.”

GARRY BUSHELL (author of Two-Faced)
