MURDER IN THE FRONT ROW: Bay Area Bangers and the Birth of Thrash Metal

Hardback book, 274 pages, colour

In the 1980s, the San Francisco Bay Area was heaven for hardcore headbangers. Shunning Hollywood hairspray and image in favour of a more dangerous street appeal, the Bay Area thrash metal scene was home to EXODUS, METALLICA, TESTAMENT, POSSESSED, DEATH ANGEL, HEATHEN, VIO-LENCE, ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT, FORBIDDEN and served as a second home to like-minded similar bands like SLAYER, MERCYFUL FATE, ANTHRAX, MEGADETH, and more.
Beginning as teenagers taking snapshots of visiting heavy metal bands during the 1970s, Brian "Umlaut" Lew and Harald "O." Oimoen documented the birth and growth of the local metal scene. Featuring hundreds of unseen live and candid color and black and white photographs, Murder in the Front Row captures the wild-eyed zeal and drive of the era.
