    This has been a favorite of ours now for many years. Vegan metal cookery!! Each recipe comes with recommended listening. Some obscure demo from some extreme metal band. Last night we had the Indian Tacos of Death. And I'm having the leftovers for breakfast today. Recommended listening :: The Ravenous Three on a Meathook https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIa3K...

    I really loved this book. It has lots of recipes that look very tasty, but other than that I'm not sure I could really tell you why I loved the book. It's filled with odd drawings, random quotes, and short snippets of the author's life and thoughts. Each recipe comes with a music recommendation. As far as I can tell all the bands are rather obscure heavy metal bands. I say "as far as I can tell" because I know absolutely nothing about this style of music.

My tastes in music run a little more...serene. The book has a conversational air--even the recipes carry the author's voice. There is pretty much no commonality between my life and the author's life, and yet I am sure we could find plenty to talk about if we were ever to meet. It's just that kind of book.

    YES. Best collected vegan recipes. And, as an added bonus, the best black metal cooking soundtrack you can find, an interview with Carcass, amusing illustrations and anecdotes, and how to make your own tattoo machine. What more do you want?

    One of the finest. This is essential. I actually have 2 recipes in here! Brad is awesome. This book is really fantastic.

    It's crazy, it doesn't make any sense, and it's absolutely brilliant. Even if you don't plan on making any of the recipes in this little gem, you should own a copy.

    Very entertaining book version of food blog with tasty recipes. Sometimes the blogging gets in the way of the recipes, yet still workable.

    Again, quick preface to this review. I have not tried any of the recipes yet, but the book was completely entertaining. The food sounded great too. I found myself ripping my receipt into strips to bookmark recipes I had to try. Its looks like a high quality book, which is a pretty big surprise. It cost $5. I may never need another cookbook. Mine says 'First Edition, 3000 Copies' which doesn't seem like very many copies. It feels like a collection of punk and hardcore show flyers, that happen to be Again, quick preface to this review.

It feels like a collection of punk and hardcore show flyers, that happen to be about food instead of bands. Lots of random art about whatever and scribbles. Lots of quotes. Crazy real life stories, like 'The Day I Saw a Dead Person'. References to bands I'm sure I'll never hear or even hear of. And cooking instructions that I can follow and make sense to me. Want to make your own soy milk? You'll need a white shirt. Want to add beats or carrots to the hottest of his chili recipes? The author will personally come and punch you in the fucking face. I'm glad I saw a review of this book http://www.vegblog.org/archive/2007/1... otherwise, I'd have probably let this gem pass me by.

    I'm not vegan. I don't restrict my diet in anyway. But, for four years once I ate a strictly vegan diet and at that time this book was only available as three separate zines. Now, eight years later I just bought a copy of the compiled book because the recipes are so damned delicious. It reads sort of like a companion piece to "Soy Not Oi!" which it was definitely inspired by. The margins are full of anecdotes, inspired quotes, and terrific illustrations, but the bulk of the book is delicious veg I'm not vegan. I don't restrict my diet in anyway.

The first recipe: The Best Damned Cheese Dip I ever Ate: it is, true believer! A must have for any vegan, and highly recommended for those who dabble in the cruelty free life style or those who just love delicious food.

    Straightforward vegan recipes - most of them 'work' or can be tweaked to fit your tastes. Recipes use soy and wheat quite liberally - if you allergies or intolerance like myself, you can adjust. There are no pictures of styled food with elaborate place settings; just ink and pen drawings, author musings, anecdotes, fun and much Heavy Metal.

As another reviewer said, I know nothing of this genre but as the author has carefully selected a song for each recipe (and there are a lot of recipes crammed into this little book), I feel inspired to seek out some Metal. :) Overall, a fun book and would make a GREAT gift for someone with vegan/metal tendencies. Happy cooking!

    I sort of knew Brad Misanthropic in the Crescent Wrench days in NOLA. He was selling this cookbook zine at Crescent Wrench, and I bought a copy. I still have it and use it to this day. The pages are tattered and have turned a weird yellowish grey color, with splashes of brown stain, probably vanilla or cocoa powder. My favorite recipes are for chocolate redemption cake and the uncheese sauce that I still cook every few months. (For a while, I made that uncheese sauce ALL THE TIME!)

Also, the instructions for the "Harder than You" Cider really work. I have made some damn good, damn alcoholic cider using these instructions. Recommended!

    Cookbooks belong in the "guidebook" section, yah? Filled with weird drawings, personal text, and obscure metal selections to help you rock out while you cook, this is a delightful collection of the recipe zines. The main problem with most vegan cook zines is that most of the recipes are beginner-level vegan stuff (scramples, etc.), but the instructions are written in an off-hand manner that almost require experienced cooking abilities.

    I liked this book. There are a lot of recipes!!! Most of them seem great. the only thing I don't like is the amount of fake meats that appear in this book. I don't like the texture, it's too similar to real meat. The one thing that made this book stand out from most other vegan cook books was the stories and other fun stuff on every page.

    crap, absolute wonderful crap. Too bad he suddenly thinks he's a headbanger instead of a punk. trendy bastard.

    Best vegan cookbook ever! Most of the recipes have easy-to-find ingredients unlike other vegan cookbooks I've bought.
