The book results from the three-year research project ‘Heaviness in Metal Music Production’ (HiMMP) funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) from 2020 to 2023 (www.himmp.net). Employing an innovative empirical research design, the project explores heaviness as a central musical quality of the metal genre. Partly by examining how leading metal producers define heaviness and control its constituent aspects during the mixing of recordings, the book explains how heaviness is captured, manipulated and delivered to the eventual listener, in recorded form.
