Upcoming Metal Music Releases

April 27, 2019

Good afternoon everyone,

On a pretty regular basis, here at MetalLibrarian, I will do my best to share with you the upcoming metal releases. Sometimes this will come in a list format, other times, an entire post will be about one album, an EP or even a single release. At MetalLibrarian, we will provide information regarding the entire spectrum of metal, not just specific sub-genres to please the masses. So, with that being said, this first post about upcoming metal music releases, will focus primarily on the releases coming out in this next month of May. I will provide some information about each band as well. This may be one of the best places to learn about upcoming releases. There are even more releases than this coming out in May and will make additional posts to cover them.

Feel free to message me at Librarytech87@gmail, if you know of any album releases coming out. Public Libraries in general do collect musical albums as part of the collections they offer. Would be great to see more people request their local public library to purchase metal music albums. They want to hear from you. Either notify your local library via email, phone on an in-person visit. The Librarians are happy you took the effort to communicate to them what you are looking for.

This is the second post of many. Cheers, and horns up my fellow metalheads!

New Book Release

April 21, 2019

Welcome to the Metal Librarian website. This website is dedicated to all things metal music, and libraries! We are going to go ahead and jump right in, and present to you a new book coming out on July 16, 2019.

More Life with Deth by David Ellefson.

  • Paperback: 304 pages
  • Publisher: Jawbone Press (July 16, 2019)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 1911036513
  • ISBN-13: 978-1911036517

For those who do not know, David Ellefson is one of the founding members of the Grammy-winning thrash metal band, Megadeth. Megadeth have gone on to sell thirty million albums worldwide for over thirty-five years now. I'm personally a pretty big fan of Megadeth myself over the years, and excited to read this, continuation of his 2013 memoir titled, My Life With Deth. In this publication, Ellefson continues to chronicle his time in Megadeth from when he actually left the band in the 2000s, and his return in 2010 and the subsequent tours and albums the band has done in the last decade.

One of the interesting tidbits contained within the book is information regarding the "Big 4" concerts that took place a few years ago. For those who do not know, the "Big 4" are a group of influential thrash metal bands from the early 1980's, including Megadeth, Metallica, Anthrax, and Slayer. These bands have pretty much influenced most metal bands since, and put thrash metal on the map. I've always respected Ellefson's playing in Megadeth, with his distinct pic-struck bass lines, that really beef up the Mustaine-led riffs.

This sounds like an interesting book to read that's coming out over the summer, and I recommend that you ask your local public library to purchase it for their collection! Public libraries like to receive feedback on specific titles that are coming out soon. Again, this is the first post of many here on Metal Librarian, so stay tuned, and horns up!
