Metallica's Kirk Hammett announced today that he will publish his first book, "Too Much Horror Business - The Kirk Hammett Collection," this October via Abrams Image. Documenting Kirk's love of all things horror, and the legendary collection of horror memorabilia he has amassed over the years, TMHB is a 228 page hardback, large format coffee table book featuring well over 300 full color images from Kirk's private collection and exclusive set photography by Mark Leialoha and Joe Gibbs.
There will be three extensive conversations with writer Steffan Chirazi covering the importance of collecting in Hammett's life from childhood, plus written captions by Kirk for many of the items displayed in the book.
"This is my gift to all the other horror nerds out there who are just like me," says Kirk, "it's been made with great love for all the many characters and movies which guided me through childhood, into adulthood and which still keep me on track today."
On June 23rd - 24th, at Orion Music + More, the new annual festival founded by Metallica and taking place in Atlantic City, NJ, fans will see a preview of what's to come in "Too Much Horror Business." Hammett will be hosting Kirk's Crypt and offering fans an extraordinary glimpse into his collection. More information on Kirk's Crypt and Orion Music + More can be found by visiting this location.
In addition to "Too Much Horror Business," Hammett will also commence producing collectible items through his Kirk Von Hammett line, specifically toys. Each of the collectibles will be a strictly limited edition, with the first one being available on October 1st here.
