Metal, Heavy

Metal, Heavy by Micah Zevin, graduate ’14, Creative Writing at The New School

Olena Jennings, 2020

From the publisher:

In Metal, Heavy, you are greeted by spirits of nature, mythology and humanity’s/the narrator’s daily life whether good, evil or somewhere in between all through the lens of heavy metal music, its metaphors, symbols and tropes. Whether traveling to new worlds, ‘real’ worlds or worlds where they all meld together, the heavy and the metal, the metal and the heavy, in all its forms, is forever present. This takes shape in all album sides in this collection whether Spirits, Concepts, Interrogations or Documents. Metal, Heavy is an escape, an analysis and a blunt object to guide one through the end times whether the obstacles are political, personal or environmental.
