I wanted to take a minute to shamelessly plug my recently completed dissertation on Christian metal. It is a free download available at http://uknowledge.uky.edu/music_etds/9. Feel free to share the link with anyone you think might be interested. Also, thank you to all who helped out with information, insight, and opinions along the way.

Great to hear you finished it! (congrats) Do you have to defend it?

Oh it is defended, revised, accepted, and paid for! I'm expecting my commemorative paper weight in the mail any day now.

I started reading this today. I may print the whole thing so I can read it away from the computer. Do you plan to put print book copies into the market. Wonder what it would cost to print 100 copies of this in book form?

Here is an interesting comment from the book ....
"There are very few instances of Christian metal bands being at the vanguard of new
metal trends, so it is fair to assume that Christian metal bands are following trends
established by general market ones and not the other way around."

This brings up a lot of pro and con positions in Christian Metal Discussions. This is something I think we metal fans should pray about and maybe change will come and Christian bands will create a new musical trend.

Oddly enough very few artists (in any type of art) either Christian or secular, actually blaze new trails in their chosen medium. The majority of them emulate the artists they admire and if they are lucky they are able to make a living at it.
