This is the first extensive scholarly study of drone metal music and its religious associations, drawing on five years of ethnographic participant observation from more than 300 performances and 74 interviews, plus surveys, analyses of sound recordings, artwork, and extensive online discourse about music. Owen Coggins shows that while many drone metal listeners identify as non-religious, their ways of engaging with and talking about drone metal are richly informed by mysticism, ritual and religion. He explores why language relating to mysticism and spiritual experience is so prevalent in drone metal culture and in discussion of musical experiences and practices of the genre. The author develops the work of Michel de Certeau to provide an empirically grounded theory of mysticism in popular culture. He argues that the marginality of the genre culture, together with the extremely abstract sound produces a focus on the listeners' engagement with sound, and that this in turn creates a space for the open-ended exploration of religiosity in extreme states of bodily consciousness.

This book defines the key ideas, scholarly debates, and research activities that have contributed to the formation of the international and interdisciplinary field of Metal Studies. Drawing on insights from a wide range of disciplines including popular music, cultural studies, sociology, anthropology, philosophy, and ethics, this volume offers new and innovative research on metal musicology, global/local scenes studies, fandom, gender and metal identity, metal media, and commerce. Offering a wide-ranging focus on bands, scenes, periods, and sounds, contributors explore topics such as the riff-based song writing of classic heavy metal bands and their modern equivalents, and the musical-aesthetics of Grindcore, Doom metal, Death metal, and Progressive metal. They interrogate production technologies, sound engineering, album artwork and band promotion, logos and merchandising, t-shirt and jewellery design, and fan communities that define the global metal music economy and subcultural scene. The volume explores how the new academic discipline of metal studies was formed, also looking forward to the future of metal music and its relationship to metal scholarship and fandom. With an international range of contributors, this volume will appeal to scholars of popular music, cultural studies, and sociology, as well as those interested in metal communities around the world.

Globalizing forces - institutional, political, economic, and cultural - are transforming American society. Sociology, Second Edition, is the first textbook to make globalization a focal point while also providing comprehensive coverage of standard topics on American society. The global focus is developed with in-text examples and discussions, globalization boxes, end-of-chapter globalization sections, and an extensive map program. The global theme complements an emphasis on diversity, which helps readers overcome ethnocentrism and better appreciate the importance of multicultural understanding in the emerging global society. "Silenced Voices" boxes augment in-text discussions and examples that examine the impact of race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, and class and age on human experience. A focus on critical analysis is fostered by "Critical Assessment" sections, which weigh the strengths and limitations of major theories, as well as by "Critical Thinking" boxes. New practice tests with answers facilitate students' preparation for quizzes and exams.
