The Australian Metal Guide is the first book that covers solely the Oz metal scene. The metal scene in Australia has had several incarnations over the past 30 years. There have been times when the metal scene was very healthy, with several venues providing bands with outlets to play to robust crowds. Predominately these have been in Sydney and Melbourne, while Perth and Adelaide have produced surprisingly a higher ratio of metal bands than other centres. Unlike other genres such as Folk and Blues, the metal scene hasn´t been consistently able to maintain the momentum and remains fragmented. Also, few Australian metal bands have made inroads in the international market. The definitive treatise of the history of metal in Australia needs to be written. Giffin´s book has gone a long way to begin documenting metal bands over the past 30 years.
