On Wednesday, May 15 Iraqi thrash metal troop and stars of “Heavy Metal in Baghdad,” Acrassicauda, assailed East Village music venue Bowery Electric for a night of free booze, sexy metal go-go dancers and heavy metal headbangage in celebration of the release of Louder Than Hell: The Definitive Oral History of Metal, the recently published book about heavy metal culture featuring hundreds of interviews with mega acts like Megadeth, Korn, Pantera, Metallica, Van Halen, and Marilyn Manson to name a few, and an introduction by Scott Ian of Anthrax and an afterword by Rob Halford of Judas Priest. Louder than Hell also features two 16-page photo inserts highlighting candid rock shots by Stephanie Cabral, Robert Matheu, and Next Mosh contributor Greg Cristman. The invite-only social gathering also featured a book signing by Louder Than Hell authors Jon Wiederhorn and Katherine Turman. Check out pictures from the shindig below!
