Reflections in the Metal Void is a collection of revised and expanded essays originally presented at the first ever global conference on heavy metal music and culture, held in Salzburg in 2008. The conference was a unique gathering of metallectuals from around the world and has since spawned countless encounters, conference and new dialogues on the possibility of heavy metal studies. This volume contains a series of original papers based on research from the world's foremost metal scholars and fans. Themes visited here include the relationship between heavy metal and identity, politics and philosophy, stretching from heavy metal movement in Brazil, central and far east Asia, through to metal's more familiar breeding grounds in North America and Europe . It further presents research how this long standing music movement has made valuable contributions to current debates concerning controversial and difficult issues such as nationalisms, race, religion, gender politics and of course, Vikings. Spanning a wide range of heavy metal sub-genres, the nature of heavy metal culture and the experience of the music are discussed, giving the scholar and fan of heavy metal the kind of cerebral attention it has long deserved. Heavy metal is argument.
