The Armageddon Chord is the debut novel from music industry veteran, Jeremy Wagner. Combining the world of heavy metal with malevolent supernatural forces Wagner has created quite a fantastic read. The story line revolves around the discovery of an ancient Egyptian song written in Hieroglyphics that if played in its entirety will unleash Hell on earth, ushering in Armageddon. The ensuing struggle between those who wish to bring about the apocalypse and a world famous heavy metal guitar player drive the story along creating a riveting thriller that is sure to keep readers glued to the pages until the very end.
The unique blending of ancient history, religion and heavy metal make this book unlike any others I have read. The characters are well developed and more than believable and the intricate details and descriptions are exceptional. As someone who has been in and around the music business for years now, I found the attention to detail to be not only incredibly accurate, but essential to the credibility of the story as a whole. There are many different worlds colliding in this story and never once does it become confusing or convoluted; everything flows beautifully.
At the end of the day I think if you're a reader of horror or fiction novels or if you're a musician, then The Armageddon Chord will be right up your alley. I know it kept me up turning pages into the wee hours of the morning. Check this one out, you won’t regret it.
