On Feb. 11, Rare Bird Books will release Doomed to Fail: The Incredibly Loud History of Doom, Sludge, and Post-metal by author J.J. Anselmi.

The book explores the origins of the sound with in-depth explorations of notable artists including Black Sabbath, Melvins, Eyehategod, Godflesh, Neurosis, and more.

Anselmi says, via press release:

I’ve had it in my head for years that I wanted to write a book specifically about heavy music, but it took me quite a while to figure out how to go about it...Reading books like Lords of Chaos, American Hardcore, and Choosing Death, made me think about how no one has given doom, sludge, or post-metal the same treatment by locating the music in a social context and tracing its evolution. Needless to say, it’s overdue.

Watch a trailer below.

Anselmi is also the author of Heavy: A Memoir of Wyoming, BMX, Drugs, and Heavy Fucking Music and he currently play sdrums in Drainage.
