Death/doom metal music, from both sides of the name, usually occupies itself with the darker spectrum of human emotion.

Metal music has existed in one form or another for about half a century. While the musical style and the culture started out in a relatively unified way, with the 'extreme turn’ of late 80s and 90s, metal culture stratified.

Chapter
Closing off the book, the co-editors offer reflections on the breadth and depth of case studies included and the potential for further scholarship at the intersections of popular music and cities.
Book
This book draws from a rich history of scholarship about the relations between music and cities, and the global flows between music and urban experience. The contributions in this collection comment on the global city as a nexus of moving people, changing places, and shifting social relations, asking what popular music can tell us about cities, and...
Article
Machismo and other thematic representations of masculinity have informed much of the scholarly research into 1980s heavy metal’s aesthetics. Although some studies have provided more substantial insights than others, the discourse has largely been shaped by scholars who criticize 1980s heavy metal because of its (hypermasculine) thematization of sex...
