Once again proving its indestructible, eternal appeal, metal is in yet another renaissance, be it the aggressive marriage of rap and metal or the expansive soundscapes of "stoner rock."

Guitar World has never failed to offer the best coverage of this enduring and explosive scene, and the collected pieces here are a must for every metal fan.
