Metal has existed for over thirty years now, and has always been stigmatized by the critics and moral authorities. Could it be the radicality of its sounds, styles or themes? This special issue of Volume! offers a first glance at the diversity of metal studies, thanks to an overview of new contributions on this music, from a pluridisciplinary (musicology, ethnomusicology and sociology) and international (France, Spain, U.S.A., Finland, Morocco, Taiwan) perspective.

The issue comes with the first exhaustive metal studies bibliography (by Keith Kahn-Harris and Fabien Hein), an interview of Amine Hamma, metal musician in the repressive context of Morocco, and a set of book reviews dedicated to metal.
