E-BOOK EXCERPT

For The Sake Of Heaviness is an inside look at how Brian Slagel built Metal Blade Records from a one-man operation in his mom's non-air-conditioned garage to the preeminent international home of heavy music that it is today. As a metal-obsessed Southern California kid, he cobbled together what he assumed would be a one-off compilation of fledgling bands from the LA scene. Released in 1982, the Metal Massacre LP included the debut recordings of Ratt, Metallica, and others. In the wake of the album's unexpected success Slagel stumbled into creating a proper record label and issued the first releases by Bitch, Armored Saint, and Slayer the following year.In this book, Brian shares his insights into signing and working with Amon Amarth, As I Lay Dying, Behemoth, The Black Dahlia Murder, Cannibal Corpse, Cirith Ungol, Corrosion of Conformity, Fates Warning, Gwar, King Diamond and Mercyful Fate, Lizzy Borden, Manowar, Sacred Reich, Six Feet Under, Trouble, Unearth, Whitechapel, and others.Featuring insights and extended guest interviews featuring friends, colleagues, Metal Blade staffers, and a long list of artists—including Metallica's James Hetfield, Slayer's Kerry King, King Diamond, and more—For The Sake Of Heaviness is, first and foremost, Brian Slagel's personal conversation about his life's passion, and the passion that drives Metal Blade: finding, exposing, and promoting the best heavy music on the planet.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Taking a populist approach to a serious subject, Myke Cole combines a novelist's flair for drama with an ancient historian's eye for detail to create a unique book that delves into one of the most popular areas of the Ancient World. From the time of Ancient Sumeria, the heavy infantry phalanx dominated the battlefield. Armed with spears or pikes, standing shoulder to shoulder with shields interlocking, the men of the phalanx presented an impenetrable wall of wood and metal to the enemy. Until, that is, the Roman legion emerged to challenge them as masters of infantry battle. Covering the period in which the legion and phalanx clashed (280–168 BC), Myke Cole delves into their tactics, arms and equipment, organization and deployment. Drawing on original primary sources to examine six battles in which the legion fought the phalanx--Heraclea (280 BC), Asculum (279 BC), Beneventum (275 BC), Cynoscephalae (197 BC), Magnesia (190 BC), and Pydna (168 BC)--he shows how and why the Roman legion, with its flexible organization, versatile tactics and iron discipline, came to eclipse the hitherto untouchable Hellenistic phalanx and dominate the ancient battlefield.
