The mighty Peaceville Records has brought us such names as Doom, Deviated Instinct,  Autopsy, Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride, Anathema, Darkthrone, Opeth and Katatonia to name but a few. It was Paul 'Hammy' Halmshaw that founded the label way back in 1987, following several years as a tape trading label. Based in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, Peaceville was an anomaly in the history of heavy music – It was shrouded in secrecy and a thick cloud of smoke yet spawned the careers of some of the biggest bands in metal, punk and hardcore.

For the first time ever Hammy recounts the full history of the inception of the label,  taking the reader through its heyday to the point where he departed. It's a gripping tale which keeps you hooked from beginning to end. Laying bare all the twists and turns along the way. It also features candid interviews with all of the major players behind the scenes and the successes  (including the likes of Fenriz andNocturno Culto of DARKTHRONE, Chris Reifer ofAUTOPSY, Vincent Cavanagh of ANATHEMA and many more)
