Abstract

Issue 9.2 sees the light following an active summer for the field of metal music studies. During 6–9 June 2023, the International Society for Metal Music Studies held its 6th Biennial Research Conference in Montreal, Canada. The event was organized by Dr Vivek Venkatesh and his team at Concordia University. The issue’s main section includes five articles addressing the topics of stadium rock, the identity construction of famous metal guitarists, the idea of heaviness, symphonic metal’s appropriation of the Baroque, and the creation of a metal scene in Bandung, Indonesia. The issue includes reviews for books on references to Nazism in popular music, the visual dimensions of metal battle jackets, and Mercyful Fate’s 1984 album Don’t Break the Oath.
