Dirty Armada is a book about a lifelong passion edited by Claudio Roccehtti (musician, performer). It’s a collection of Italian metal bands’ logos, that Rocchetti has been gathering since he was 12 years old and which is still expanding. It’s a book full of pure beauty and metal thrill, a visual study of decades of true underground. The book includes two essays by Marcello Crescenzi and Ezio Sabbotigh that lead the readers into the memories of that period and give a name to the people that helped to create that metal imagery. At the end of the post you can read an excerpt from Marcello Crescenzi’s essay.
The book will be out the 1st October 2011. From here you can preorder Dirty Armada at the discounted price of 14€ instead of 18€ (just until the 25th of September).
