DAILY The Gay Place  July 23, 2012, by Rob Cohen


Sheet Music
Summer Reading
Music Story  June 6, 2003, by Marc Savlov
"...The fact that Christe, who succinctly divvies up the epic scope of the book in chapters ranging from "The New Wave of British Heavy Metal" (Saxon, Tygers of Pan Tang) to "Death Metal Deliverance" (Cannibal Corpse, Florida's Godsmacking Deicide), has managed to craft a whirlwind ride through the convoluted span of metal is testament (or is that Testament?) to his fanatical love of the subject. Christe's examination of not only the bands and their twin-Flying-V's aural assault, but also the broader cultural context -- i.e., Ronald Reagan has his finger on the button, so why not form a band and call it Nuclear Assault? -- is eminently readable stuff, and little-discussed topics such as the impact of AIDS on MTV's faltering rotation of sexually turbocharged hair-metal acts like Poison and Warrant and former Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford's unambiguously queer onstage leatherman persona in such a teen-testosterone-charged musical arena are like a breath of fresh air in, well, a moldering crypt of Extreme Noise Terror..."
