From the Anthropology Review Database:

“This book is an impressive creation, a first formative step into a vastly untapped area of academic inquiry, showing how this music genre is adapted locally to unique cultural conditions. Anthropologists and ethnomusicologists should now seriously consider heavy metal music as yet another of the components of North American and Western European globalization.”

From The Journal of Folklore Research:

“The editors have synthesized decades’ worth of theory with a survey of the global field of metal studies today, thus making this volume a must-read for any scholar of metal.”
