In-House Specials

Some of the people involved in Heavy Metal Therapy have some research experience and an interest in learning more about the link between heavy metal and mental health. In this section of the site we have all the academic(ish) work that we have produced ourselves for Heavy Metal Therapy. We put ourselves forward for things all the time, and have a number of ideas in the pipeline, so watch this space as we will be adding that stuff on here.  Please contact us if you would like us to come speak or collaborate with your organisation.

We have divided the part of the site into sections:

Academic Publications (including conferences)

Talks and Workshops

Guest Blogs




We contributed a little bit to the introduction of Dan Franklin’s book Heavy, and one of the reviews in the i newspaper



We also did an interview about the project for our friends at WARO

The World Metal Congress featured us in episode 8 of their Webcast series on heavy metal and mental health:

We were included in the series “metal music studies 101” by the International Society for Metal Music Studies. Our bit is here, and we also got a spot in their bibliography.
