Hardbound book with a massive 1,6 kg weight.
Second volume of the encyclopedia of Swedish Hard Rock and Heavy metal. Like its predecessor, released in 1996, it deals with bands from the far side of fluffiness to the heavy edge of death/black metal, stretching out towards prog, blues and hardcore. Volume II contains close to 1000 bands of which 660 are new entries and the rest are up-dates of bands from the first book. A chapter with names and discographies of the remaining 700 bands from the first edition is also featured. The information presented for each band includes hometown, members, biography, musical description and a discography including year, format, title, label and catalogue number. All of it topped off with nice photos and record covers.
