When not kicking back with the latest new releases or taking in one of the summer’s many live metal offerings, many a rivethead’s fancy turns to the literary arts. If you’re a fan of the genre, Martin Popoff’s books are a must, and the latest is no exception.

Popoff, author of the stellar Collector’s Guide to Heavy Metal, as well as the Goldmine Heavy Metal Record Price Guide, Heavy Metal: 20th Century Rock’n Roll (a book on metal’s most influential bands), and the Southern Rock Review, check’s his opinions at the door and let’s us, the metal community, offer ours.

The Top 500 Heavy Metal Songs of All Time reveals a ranking of songs based on votes received from fans in the years leading up to the writing of the book. A scoring system allows for an easy ranking of the tunes, and the cherry on top is commentary from Popoff, the metal guru, and the artists themselves on the songs and/or band. Many artists also included their personal top 10 for a little extra insight. In true Popoff fashion, the book ends with a number of appendices that slice and dice the list every which way, and of course Marty’s top 25. You won’t discover any hidden metal gems here (you’ll find that in the Collector’s Guide), the list goes, for the most part, as you’d expect, but half the fun is in seeing where your personal faves wound up and wondering what the rest of the metal world was thinking. Great reading for those hot summer nights!

Next up for Popoff will be the Top 500 Heavy Metal Albums of All Time. I can hardly wait.
