Shout outs and recommendations

Comments Off on Shout outs and recommendations

This is very belated, but I wanted to recommend a couple of online articles that engage and contest with my ideas on metal. I don’t have time unfortunately to respond to them properly but the least I can do is to mention they exist:

Leviathan and the ethics of consumption by Tim Bavlnka

Being a metalhead and the irrelevance of the concept of ‘scene’ by anonymous

In addition, I also want to recommend Michelle Phillipov’s book Death Metal and Music Criticism: Analysis at the Limits  , which I also endorsed. Phillipov contests the political nature of my reading of death metal’s transgression – but in a very interesting way. It’s a valuable addition to the burgeoning metal literature.
