Frontiers of academic research: metal music studies

Check out the Society for Metal Music Studies and read an interview with a metal studies sociologist.

A taster from the interview:
Q: What, in your view, is the dividing line between “metal” and “rock”?
A: Metal is one louder. 
I guess that means metal goes up to 11.

Great stuff.

Hat tip: a speaker at this conference.
