About the Author

ROBERT WALSER is a professor and director of the Center of Popular Music Studies at Case Western Reserve University.

BERGER is professor of music and performance studies at Texas A&M University. He is the author of Stance and coeditor of Metal Rules the Globe.


"Walser belongs to a small but influential group of academics trying to reconcile 'high theory' with a streetwise sense of culture . . . an excellent book."--Rolling Stone

"Making surprising connections to classical forms and debunking stereotypes of metal's musical crudity, Walser delves enthusiastically into guitar conventions and rituals."--Washington Post "Walser is truly gifted at doing what few critics before him have done: analyzing the music . . . In virtuoso readings of metal music that forge persuasive links between metal and particular classical music traditions, Walser reveals the ways that musical structures themselves are social texts." --The Nation "Running with the Devil takes musicology where it has never gone before; I once saw the chapter on metal guitarists and the classical tradition performed live in a lecture hall, but even on paper it smokes."--SF Weekly
