Inscriptions in Black Metal

Very excited that Black Dog Press’ wonderful collection of essays and materials relating to black metal, entitled Black Metal: Beyond the Darkness, comes out soon… It includes my short piece on the influence of black metal on contemporary fiction called “Individualism above all: black metal in American writing” where I suggest that individualism, as a salient feature of black metal and a recurring figure within American culture, may be seen to determine the recent reception and application of black metal in the United States. The book also contains pieces by music journalist Louis Pattinson, The Wire and LRB contributor Nick Richardson and the most excellent Pitchfork editor Brandon Stosuy.
