Get out of your MCZ (metal comfort zone) and read this book!
As a non-metalhead, I didn’t know what to expect. I find that if I read book about a genre or subgenre I’m not a fan of then it’s a risk to pick it up. Yet, that’s the point of this book. The author acknowledges that we often stay within our lanes when it comes to music and our careers and this is exactly why I’m so happy I read this. A good book will allow you to understand why the author loves a certain genre of art or music. A great book will allow you to feel the heart and passion for the art; it will put you in the mind of the author and teach you lessons about life you never expected. Finally, it will encourage you to try something new. As I’m writing this, I’m listening to the book’s Spotify playlist, listening to a metal song that I never would have found much less listened to on my own. This is a great book. It made me want to challenge my own assumptions and go out of my MCZ (“metal comfort zone”). I’m not sure if I will become a metalhead (that remains to be seen) but I’ve taken away some valuable lessons on taking risks and facing challenges. Even if I never become a metalhead, I enjoyed reading how someone found great success in the most unlikely career journey, inspired by a lifelong love of metal music. That kind of enthusiasm and zest for life is rare and inspiring. Whether you’re a metalhead or just looking for an insightful book chock full of wisdom, this is it. Kudos. BBC
