Axes of EvilCarnage. Blood. Damage. Diatonic scales. Bone shards. Blast beats. Chaos. Chromatics. Gore. Guitars. Diabolism. Double bass. Riffs. Wreckage. Monsters. Music. AXES OF EVIL An original anthology of heavy metal-themed horror stories, edited by music journalist (Metal Hammer) and author Alex S. Johnson Featuring Lucy Taylor, Bram Stoker Award-winning author for The Safety of Unknown Cities Sephera Giron, author of over 15 published books, including The House of Pain and Borrowed Flesh Terry M. West, author of What Price Gory, director of the cult classic horror film Flesh for the Beast Del James, author of The Language of Fear, music journalist, songwriter (Guns N' Roses, Testament, etc.) And 30 more of the finest writers in the horror field today. I have determined that this astounding collection of horror is not merely an anthology but a coded Grimoire of magic. -Robin Dover As a reader and avid horror fanatic, I often find myself saturated with supposedly great horror fiction only to be let down by the quality. With this anthology, I got everything I could possibly want; Horror and Metal. Thirty-four stories with bite and balls make this a must read. Axes of Evil isn't just a book; it's an epic tome of brutality.-Dale Herring LET THE SHREDDING BEGIN"

I really liked this book and the way each story was presented. I don’t think you need to be a fan of heavy meatal music, or this genera of material because the writing that each story offers holds up on their own. At least for me. I will say that like any group of stories there are some that stand out for each person. For me the two stories written by, Charie D. La Marr, the first one I think she could actually write an entire book from that story it really was amazing, from the characters to the story line. Her second one was just as well written but from a totally different genera for she was doing it memory of the people who had lost their lives in the Station at Warwick Rhode Island February 20, 2003. And for the people who were also injured or who had lost someone dear to them, a very moving story. There was another story that was about a concert in Bakersfield, thought that was funny because I live there. Each story is well thought out and though it is tied to heavy metal the way each story comes back to the music is unique and that is what makes this book a good read. The stories are well thought out and not just put together, you really have to think about what you are reading. The way each story moves you is not a way I would have thought I could have been moved, but each one got me. Even now writing this review I am still thinking of a couple one about a clown, and another one about a young man always wanting to be a heavy metal rock star but instead is working as an attendant picking up dead people and taking them to the morgue, this has a an ending you really want to read about. You see each story is different and that is what makes this book a very good book and one I am grateful to the author to allow me to read.
