Metal Scenes around the World
This edited volume expands the research in the field of metal studies by examining metal music communities around the world, from Dayton, Ohio, to Estonia to post-apartheid South Africa and beyond. The chapters are detailed, richly embedded in local histories and contexts, and provide important analyses of their respective scenes. The diversity of the chapters connects metal to other disciplines in the music field and a foreword by Henkka Seppälä, former bassist of the Finnish extreme metal band Children of Bodom, accompanies the essays. Living Metal is a groundbreaking contribution to the field, with much appeal for fans and scholars of metal music as well as those in the fields of anthropology, musicology, and history.
