A limited, Revised Edition of the out-of-print book And Justice For Art: Stories About Heavy Metal Album Covers has been released via indie publishers, Dark Canvas.

This one-of-a-kind collection of stories features more than 450 color graphics and recounts all the particulars behind the making of artworks as iconic as SLAYER's Reign In Blood, METALLICA's ...And Justice For All, MORBID ANGEL's Blessed Are The Sick, BLACK SABBATH's 13, DEATH's Symbolic, CARCASS' Heartwork, SLEEP's Dopesmoker, TESTAMENT's Dark Roots Of Earth, OPETH's Heritage and many others. These are told through 105 exclusive interviews with heavy music's icons like Jeff Walker (CARCASS), Charlie Benante (ANTHRAX), Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, SEPULTURA), Fenriz (DARKTHRONE), Sebastian Bach (SKID ROW), Paul Masvidal (CYNIC), Chris Adler (LAMB OF GOD), David Vincent (MORBID ANGEL), Travis Ryan (CATTLE DECAPITATION), among many others.

Additionally, the book's Revised Edition also features new revealing commentaries by Dani Filth (CRADLE OF FILTH), Dave Lombardo (SLAYER), Kelly Schaefer (ATHEIST), Neige (ALCEST) and by critically acclaimed illustrators such as Michael Whelan, Eliran Kantor, Dan Seagrave, Joe Petagno, Arik Roper and Travis Smith, just to name a few.

The first edition of this 264-color pages volume was first published in 2015, thanks to a successful crowd-funding campaign. The constant demand and the new available material motivated author Ramon Oscuro Martos to create a new Revised Edition featuring additional interviews, commentaries and graphics.

"I didn't want to just re-print the same book again," says Martos-who writes for publications like MetalUnderground.com and Heavy Music Artwork magazine. "I had new material available. So, I decided to introduce some changes that definitely bring something new to the table while keeping intact the essence of previous edition. It's still the same book... but dramatically improved and updated."

And Justice For Art has been reviewed by many specialized music publications including USA's Decibel Magazine ("A lush, edifying, fascinating, surprising tour de force history of metal album covers"), UK's Zero Tolerance Magazine ("Meticulously researched, beautifully designed and with a wealth of fascinating and insightful interviews") and Belgium's Rock Tribune Magazine ("It's very impressive, do not hesitate too long if you want to have this book").

The international metal community has also expressed support for the book. For ex-MORBID ANGEL frontman David Vincent (who wrote the book's foreword) "this is a historical document about the importance of Metal album covers." OBITUARY's drummer Donald Tardy, comments that "the world needs books like this." CATTLE DECAPITATION's frontman Travis Ryan, says: "this is exactly what the music world needs to remind us all just how important album covers have been to all of us that grew up surrounding ourselves with physical media." AT THE GATES guitarist Anders Björler admits being "really surprised when I got this book; it's highly recommended!"

The Revised Edition of ...And Justice For Art: Stories About Heavy Metal Album Covers is exclusively available HERE or HERE.
