"Fans of Metallica will love this intimate look at the band, from more than two decades back. Bill Hale takes us on that journey, offering a massive dose of heavy metal mania." Shelf Life
"All I can say is wow. The holy grail of Metallica's early era in photography. This is one awesome book along with the text that goes with each photo. Any Metallica fan from any era has got to check this book out." Good Time Metal Oldies Blog
"Hale captures the edgy essence of the young band . . . If you are a serious Metallica fan or just a purveyor of rock history, this book is a must-see." Sacramento Book Review
"One of those few books that are more than developed film on paper, but a time machine in book form . . . Bill Hale is to Metallica as Astrid Kirchherr was to the Beatles." antiMusic.com
"Hale’s shotsdamn, he was just a kid tooare top-shelf, crisp, clear, colorful, and kinetic. Some remind me of Ross Halfin. He had full access backstage and wasn’t afraid to wade into the pit to get crucial shots from the front. He has a good eye for the pose, and his fan’s eye view allows him to capture shots that more experienced and blasé snappers might pass up . . . A slim volume but very much worth it for all serious students of metal." Ink 19
"This happens to be the earliest account of photos to surface on this band’s early period . . . this book is a must have for the true Metallica fan." Big Wheel Magazine
