Heavy Metal Thesis

‘Soul Invaders’

An Exploration of the Heavy Metal Culture in Contemporary Newcastle & Sydney

Dear readers,

This year I dedicated a lot of time and energy to a very strong passion of mine: heavy metal! Using a discursive analysis, I explored the various themes and concepts underpinning the heavy metal culture with a particular focus on the scenes existing in Newcastle and Sydney, Australia.

May you read my gargantuan 10, 000 word thesis with interest and hopefully it ignites a passion for heavy metal you never thought you had!!

  1. Your thesis is very informative and definitely thought provoking, well done. I would like to draw you attention to a newly published book, “Rock and Roll Children” by Michael D. LeFevre. It is the story of heavy metal in the 80s as seen through the eyes of four metal heads. I think many of your ideas in the thesis will marry up with the storyline in the book.
