Soundgarden from the Author: Chris Nickson. Soundgarden has hammered together the strands of so many different elements - seventies metal, hard rock, punk, goth-into an alloy that's stronger and harder than any of its constituents, and one which by its very nature stands a little bit beyond definition. Is it metal? Is it punk? Does it really matter? It is Soundgarden, playing their music. You get it or you don't. Soundgarden is, without doubt, the real thing. Where will they go now? They've taken metal to places it has never been before. They've melded it with punk in a manner so natural that the seams don't show. Badmotorfinger held the real glimmer of identity; Superunknown brought it into the light. Soundgarden isn't just the Next Big Metal Thing...they're the Next Big Thing.

Birth School Metallica Death from the Author: Paul Brannigan. Metallicas Weg von der Garagenband in Los Angeles auf die größten Bühnen der Welt ist eine der herausragenden Erfolgsgeschichten der Rockmusik. Die Musikjournalisten Paul Brannigan und Ian Winwood sind den vier Musikern über die Jahre hinweg näher gekommen als jeder andere. Sie waren mit der Band im Studio und auf Reisen und haben dabei hunderte Stunden Interviews gesammelt. Nun erzählen sie die ganze Geschichte von Metallica, so wie sie keiner kennt – Inside-Stories von Sex, Drugs and Rock ‘n‘ Roll, von Freundschaft und Egomanie, von großen Träumen und brennendem Ehrgeiz. Brannigan und Winwood zeichnen den ungebrochenen Erfolg von Metallica nach und stellen damit alles in den Schatten, was jemals über die Band veröffentlicht wurde.

The Rendezvous And Other Stories from the Author: Patrick O'Brian. A collection of startlingly vivid short stories from Patrick O'Brian, author of the highly acclaimed Aubrey/Maturin series. Patrick O'Brian has emerged, in the opinion of many, as one of the greatest novelists now writing in English. His fame rests mainly on the achievement of the epic Aubrey/Maturin novels, but few readers know that O'Brian first made his reputation as a writer of short fiction. Collected here for the first time are twenty-seven stories that O'Brian wishes to preserve: stories of uncommon lyricism and beauty that will confirm his rightful place in the front rank of short-story writers as well as of novelists. Although the tone of this collection ranges effortlessly from the humorous to the dramatic, the most characteristic and memorable stories often have to do with a glimpse of savage, destructive forces through the fragile shell of human civilization. The threatened chaos may be psychological, as in "On the Wolfsberg," or it may be lurking in the natural world, as in "A Passage of the Frontier," or, as in the dark masterpiece "The Chian Wine," it is suddenly discovered in the ancient, irrational impulses of human nature. The setting may be the marshes of western Ireland, the Pyrenees, or the claustrophobic confines of a clockmender's house, but each story is a showcase for Patrick O'Brian's fresh and meticulous prose; each story reaffirms his sympathetic understanding of human passion and suffering. This collection proves that O'Brian is not simply the master of a genre, but an author who will long be honored as one of our most eminent literary figures.
