Rated 0

Heavy Metal music

A fascinating investigation into what defines 'heavy' in music and how heaviness transfuses culture.

Iconic, obscene and sublime, heavy music is woven into the fabric of modern culture, but how deep do its roots go?

This book investigates what defines 'heavy' music, and shines a light on how it has transfused cultures. Drawing a line between heavy music and other art forms, it examines a range of artists - identifying the unifying energy of heaviness - to assess the cultural and social impacts they have made.

For true believers in the music, HEAVY will give shape and meaning to everything that fascinates them. For the uninitiated, Franklin wants to share something that is as much misunderstood as it is adored. Both elusive and sometimes sinister, he aims to reveal heaviness in all its terrible beauty, and to drive people to discover music and other works of art that show the world in a different light.

Heavy is a powerful and evocative journey through the history of the music and the cultural scene it has influenced. A stunning celebration of heavy music, it will distil the very essence of heaviness.
