The title is what it says, and it's a great read. Well-written, interviews with known and not-so-well known artists about the experience of being Black and loving Heavy Metal as listeners, players and concert-goers. Like Heavy Metal itself, the book is brutally honest, and some of the experiences are not pretty. It explores the the cultural effects not just between Black and White, but how Blacks view other Blacks who like something other than Hip Hop and R&B. It's a deep and interesting read for those who appreciates and respects everyone who loves the music, written by someone on its front lines as a writer and photographer.
