|Gentle Reader, Mosh Pit|
Some literature is Jane Eyre, and some literature is pure metal. Here are some I feel fit well
within the metal genre, and have been used throughout. Tell me some more.
Without this, there would be no metal. There would just be nothing to talk about.
|2|| ||J.R.R. Tolkein|
The Lord of the Rings
Another essential to metal, especially black metal. Sauron, Orcs, Dead Marshes, Balrog? Metal.
Of all the mythologies, Viking mythology is the most metal. If you die in battle, you go to heaven so you
can get wasted. And then when it's all over, you fight with huge serpents and giants in Ragnarok.
The Divine Comedy
Our first glimpse into Hell, and some of us have never looked back.
The classic deal with the devil. Kamelot comes to mind with Faust, though I'm sure a lot more touch on
|6|| ||H.P. Lovecraft|
The Call of Ktulu
A being so evil, so frightening, it is incomprehensible to the human psyche. Unless you're Metallica.

WHITE WHALE, HOLY GRAIL
|8||Anthony Burgess |
A Clockwork Orange
Alex is the typical metalhead: he's violent, horny and society doesn't accept that. They try to change him.
But you can't stop the metal.
|rofl I love this list|
|The Necronomicon, that would fall under H.P. Lovecraft i suppose. no Necronomicon, no Morbid Angel.... and no Evil Dead series, with out those 2 things, my life would suck.|
|This is a really good, really true list.|
|I don't really read much anymore but since I've heard about, 6 has been on my hot plate. 3 is pretty much the greatest thing ever. Awesome list.|
|i think of 6 whenever i have calamari.|

|Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!|
