It is the story of a worldwide network of rabid fans escaping everyday mundanity through music, of cut-throat corporate arseholes ripping off those fans and the bands they worship to line their pockets. The expansive pantheon of heavy metal musicians includes junkies, Satanists and murderers, born-again Christians and teetotallers, stadium-touring billionaires and toilet-circuit journeymen. Award-winning comedian and life-long heavy metal obsessive Andrew O'Neill has performed his History of Heavy Metal comedy show to a huge range of audiences, from the teenage metalheads of Download festival to the broadsheet-reading theatre-goers of the Edinburgh Fringe. Now, in his first book, he takes us on his own very personal and hilarious journey through the history of the music, the subculture, and the characters who shaped this most misunderstood genre of music.

Ozzy Osbourne ist an allem schuld. Hätten Ozzy und seine Band Black Sabbath nicht Ende der Sechziger den Heavy Metal erfunden, hätte es auch nicht all die langhaarigen Gitarrenschwinger mit Leder- oder Spandexhosen gegeben, die bereits vor zwanzig Jahren mit ihren Tätowierungen schockierten. Derart raue, ruppige und verstörende Sounds hatten die Rockhörer vorher noch nie über sich ergehen lassen müssen. Kein Wunder, dass diese neue Musik das Lager der Fans spaltete: Was den einen als aggressiver Lärm mit oft frauenverachtenden oder gewaltverherrlichenden Texten erschien, bot Liebhabern des Genres die Chance, in eine eigene und bei aller Ruppigkeit ausgesprochen geheimnisvolle Welt mit eigenen Regeln und Gesetzen abzutauchen. Mit "Paranoid", dem Metal-Klassiker, der im August 1970 ein neues musikalisches Zeitalter einläutete, begann die wechselvolle Geschichte des Heavy Metal, der sich über dreißig Jahre hinweg in höchst unterschiedlichen Ausprägungen manifestierte und in unzählige Subgenres zerteilte - dabei von den Kritikern gehasst und von den Fans geliebt. In Höllen-Lärm geht Ian Christie all diesen Entwicklungen nach: Von den Gründervätern Black Sabbath ausgehend, begibt er sich auf die Zeitreise zu Helden der Siebzigerjahre wie AC/DC, Judas Priest oder Kiss und schließlich zum Glitzermetal der Achtziger, als plötzlich mit Bands wie Mötley Crüe und Ratt Haarspray und Klamotten wichtiger zu sein schienen als der harte Sound. Spannend ist vor allem auch seine Bewertung der jüngsten Metal-Geschichte: Wie Heavy Metal durch den Kontakt mit Rap und HipHop nach einer Flaute Mitte der Neunziger als Nu Metal auferstand und zudem seinen traditionellen Sound in noch düsterere und noch härtere Gefilde transformierte. Ian Christie führte mehr als einhundert Interviews mit den Musikern von Black Sabbath, Metallica, Judas Priest, Twisted Sister, Slipknot, Kiss, Megadeth und all den anderen Major Players der Szene. Daraus entstand ein Werk, dessen Ausführlichkeit und Szenekenntnis kaum zu übertreffen sein dürfte. Selbst unübersehbar Fan des Höllenlärms, über den er schreibt, liefert Ian Christie dennoch die objektive Analyse einer Musikszene, die von den Medien ebenso wie von der etablierten Musikkritik nach wie vor gern ignoriert wird.

Heavy metal has developed from a British fringe genre of rock music in the late 1960s to a global mass market consumer good in the early twenty-first century. Early proponents of the musical style, such as Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Judas Priest, Saxon, Uriah Heep and Iron Maiden, were mostly seeking to reach a young male audience. Songs were often filled with violent, sexist and nationalistic themes but were also speaking to the growing sense of deterioration in social and professional life. At the same time, however, heavy metal was seriously indebted to the legacies of blues and classical music as well as to larger literary and cultural themes. The genre also produced mythological concept albums and rewritings of classical poems. In other words, heavy metal tried from the beginning to locate itself in a liminal space between pedestrian mass culture and a rather elitist adherence to complexity and musical craftsmanship, speaking from a subaltern position against the hegemonic discourse. This collection of essays provides a comprehensive and multi-disciplinary look at British heavy metal from its beginning through The New Wave of British Heavy Metal up to the increasing internationalization and widespread acceptance in the late 1980s. The individual chapter authors approach British heavy metal from a textual perspective, providing critical analyses of the politics and ideology behind the lyrics, images and performances. Rather than focus on individual bands or songs, the essays collected here argue with the larger system of heavy metal music in mind, providing comprehensive analyses that relate directly to the larger context of British life and culture. The wide range of approaches should provide readers from various disciplines with new and original ideas about the study of this phenomenon of popular culture.

Heavy Metal, Gender and Sexuality brings together a collection of original, interdisciplinary, critical essays exploring the negotiated place of gender and sexuality in heavy metal music and its culture. Scholars debate the current state of play concerning masculinities, femininities, queerness, identity aesthetics and monstrosities in an area of music that is sometimes mistakenly treated as exclusively sustaining a masculinist hegemony. The book combines a broad variety of perspectives on the main topic, regarding gender in connection to: the history of the genre; the range of metal subgenres; heavy metal's multidimensional scope (music, lyrics, performance, style, illustrations); men and women; sexualities and various local and global perspectives. Heavy Metal, Gender and Sexuality is a text that opens up the world of heavy metal to reveal that it is a very diverse and ground-breaking stage where gender play is at the centre of its theatricality and sustains its mass appeal.
