The awesome metal site Invisible Oranges ran an excellent writeup on my book Sound Levels: Profiles in American Music, 2002-2009 on Friday. As part of that post, he offered a free download sampler that I put together containing the cover and three sample stories from the book: one on Mike Patton, one on the Melvins, and one on Oxbow. I now offer you that sampler here. Feel free to check out those three stories at this link, and if you like them, you can buy the entire book here. Enjoy!
