(ANTIMEDIA) According to a new study by the University of Queensland, Australia, “extreme music” does not cause anger in listeners, but instead may help with processing.

The study, published in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, focused on “extreme” genres of music, including heavy metal, emo, hardcore, punk, screamo, and various subgenres. Drs. Genevieve Dingle and Leah Sharman studied 39 regular listeners of extreme music between the ages of 18 and 34. (more…)

Among Americans’ periodic periods of panic over the corrosiveness of pop culture, the 1980s campaign to vilify heavy metal music stands out for the decibel level of both the music and the protests.

With dramatic testimony in courtrooms and at Congressional hearings, concerned parents and even government officials warned that groups like Iron Maiden and Metallica were enticing our teenagers into moral and spiritual darkness—up to and including devil worship.

So now that three decades have passed since this alleged attempt by Satan to infiltrate young brains via eardrum-shattering sounds, how are those headbangers doing? Did their punishingly loud and intense music send them spiraling into lives of despair?

HORLET

HORLET

“HORLET – The underground Metal scene is alive & rabid in Dayton, Ohio… & HORLET is one brutal reason why. Uniting the sounds of both old school Thrash & Scandinavian Melodic Death Metal, the influences of Slayer & (early) In Flames run rampant through the Metal sound of HORLET. If you’re a Metal band on the rise like HORLET is, these are the Metal legends you want to have rub off on your sonic Metal arsenal.”

Chambers of Chaos has been rockin the Dayton Scene & has hooked up with an awesome new drummer, Kyle D. Mayes, who will be performing his debut show with CoC on the 22nd!

“Lighters & Moshpits alumni Chambers of Chaos emerged as the sunglass wearing, middle finger flailing, attitude adjusting, smirking Shaun Clark entered the proverbial staged ring as musical fists flew. Yelling the spoken word Hype train with plenty of pissed off attitude. They end slow, dark & melodic on the Kiss of Goodbye. CoC are not to be Pushed, played around with or pissed off in any way, shape or form. Why, because they said so.”     –  Mike Ritchie, Dayton Most Metro

***I’m trying out what I hope will be a new feature of this page: Local Music Playlists, by genre (This is NOT a radio show)***
Check out my LOCAL METAL PLAYLIST on ReverbNation, featuring 80+ songs from 45 local metal bands! I handpicked these songs from bands so that we could enjoy hours of uninterrupted local music together, and it was really cool and reassuring to find so much good local metal!  The bands cover every spectrum of the metal genre, ranging from technical speed metal to groove metal, from death metal & black metal to thrash and hardcore rap metal and everything in between.  There is a varying degree of recording quality and volume throughout the playlist, so be warned that your ears may actually bleed at some points from some of our more brutal metal bands (at least we hope so)!  \m/

I’ll be starting a new local music playlist soon.  If you dig this idea, give this post a like and maybe comment and tell me what genre I should focus on next!
