Hanukkah continues to be 5 months away, however I can already inform what my nephew and niece are every getting as presents:
Considerably amazingly, The ABCs of Metallica isn’t simply one other cute fan-made joke! It’s a very actual children’ e-book, created partially to profit the band’s All Inside My Arms charity group, and scheduled for launch in late November… which oh hey wouldn’t ya know it’s simply in time for these holidays I used to be speaking about.
Right here’s the official description of the e-book, direct from Metallica’s web site:
We’ve got a brand new e-book popping out and this time it rhymes! We’re having a little bit of enjoyable as ‘The ABCs of Metallica’ hits the cabinets and on-line e-book shops on November 26, 2019, all for an incredible trigger with a portion of the proceeds benefiting All Inside My Arms as we proceed to help workforce schooling and the struggle towards starvation.
Together with rhymes and illustrations, ‘The ABCs of Metallica’ appears to be like again on the historical past of the band from, duh, A to Z! Every letter of the alphabet highlights a second alongside our journey from ‘Storage Days’ to ‘Grasp of Puppets’ to enjoyable information about us. The e-book is co-authored by Howie Abrams (‘The Cruel Ebook of Metallic Lists,’ ‘Hip-Hop Alphabet’), with illustrations by Michael “Kaves” McLeer, who participated in Metallica’s Obey Your Grasp exhibit in 2012.
Books, in addition to bundles with Younger Metallic Assault merchandise, can be found for pre-order now within the Met Retailer.
So that each one sounds nice. We are able to solely hope that different basic steel bands observe go well with. Slayer, for those who wanna do considered one of these, give me a name, I’d be delighted to attempt to work out a option to make “Angel of Dying” kid-friendly.
