Running with the Devil : power, gender, and madness in heavy metal music by Robert Walser( Book )

31 editions published between 142 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: A Choice Outstanding Academic Book. A musicologist and cultural critic as well as a professional musician, Robert Walser offers a comprehensive musical, social, and cultural analysis of heavy metal in Running with the Devil. Dismissed by critics and academics, condemned by parents and politicians, fervently embraced by legions of fans, heavy metal music attracts and embodies cultural conflicts that are central to our society. Walser explores how and why heavy metal works, both musically and socially, and at the same time uses metal to investigate contemporary formations of identity, community, gender, and power
