Sarah Tipper is my most favourite non-musician to talk about on We Love Metal. And it is precisely because she is such a metal fan herself. Metal is in Sarah’s blood and she is compelled to get it out on paper.
Growing up, one of my favourite books was Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. The story had a wonderful combination of adventure, rich characters, courage, simple politics and the siren song of pirate treasure.
As you might have guessed from the title, Eviscerated Panda Vol. 4 is the fourth book in the now-questionably named Eviscerated Panda Trilogy. This series of novels follows an English band, named Eviscerated Panda, as they form their band, put together original songs, record albums and play gigs.
Previously, I have discussed the Eviscerated Panda trilogy (A Metal Tale, Back in Bamboo and Vulgar Display Of Panda). The trilogy follows the formation and rise of a British metal band called Eviscerated Panda. The series focuses heavily on not only the band members themselves, but also their friends, girlfriends, wives and rivals.
Last year I reviewed two novels in the Eviscerated Panda series, by Sarah Tipper. These two books, A Metal Tale and Back in Bamboo, tell the story of a heavy metal/thrash band called Eviscerated Panda.
Eviscerated Panda: Back in Bamboo is the second book of the Eviscerated Panda series (soon to be a trilogy) and Back in Bamboo picks up right where the first novel, Eviscerated Panda: A Metal Tale, left off.
