Looking for quotes for Heavy Metal chapbook
My name is Armand Rosamilia and I run a small-press chapbook
company, www.CarnifexPress.com . I am looking to put together
a "Fan's look at Heavy Metal" series of books for future release.
We're focusing on the Heavy Metal from the 1980s and not interested
in Nu Metal bands for this project.
Heavy Metal Chapbook Series
The intent of each chapbook is to print the stories from Heavy Metal
fans of the 1980s in certain genres.
What we're looking for:
Personal stories about Heavy Metal in general and specific bands.
Some possible ideas we are looking for: meeting the band in person,
what their music meant to you as a teen, what it means now, how
certain songs shaped your life, why you got into the band in the
first place, concerts you went to, etc.
The more you can add to it, the better. We are looking for your FULL
name and where you were growing up at the time Heavy Metal became a
part of your life, your age now and any other facts about you we
could use for the book, especially if they have a website or group
about Heavy Metal.
There is no payment for your quotes, but everyone quoted will get a
discount on the price of the chapbook (and obviously their name in
The chapbook series will be broken up into specific genres with some
groups listed under each, but feel free to talk about groups not
listed or Heavy Metal in general. This is just a rough list and
there are tons of groups we missed. We are also looking for local
bands that never made it to the major labels but you still remember
them (or were part of the band), either for inclusion in the
chapbooks or another series for the future. Also, we are looking for
tape traders from the 1980s to chat about their bootlegs and demo
