In 2010, four legendary metal bands – Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax – shared the same stage for the first time, playing seven Sonisphere Festival concerts throughout Europe.

To commemorate that event, author Neil Daniels has pieced together a scrapbook of lists, articles and reviews on all four bands: “Big 4 Encyclopedia: A Guide to the Metal Music of Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth & Anthrax.” The paperback edition leads this week’s list of new music books.
