On the 4th March, join us for the first The Quietus Social event of 2020.  Dan Franklin is a music journalist and regular contributor to The Quietus who is releasing his first book ‘Heavy: How Metal Changes The Way We See World’.  The book investigates what defines ‘heavy’ music, and examines a range of artists to assess the cultural and social impacts they have made.

Franklin will discuss the book and talk about some of his experiences writing about heavy music.  He will also be joined by other notable music journalists who will share horror stories from their time reporting on the front lines of heavy metal.

Also appearing on the panel will be Metal Hammer deputy editor Eleanor Goodman, who has commissioned cover stories and interviewed some of the biggest names in metal, from Metallica to Iron Maiden, as well as Michael Hann, the former music editor of The Guardian who is currently working on a book about the New Wave of British Heavy Metal.

Following that, the evening will close with two mega live sets. The first will be from the ‘ghastly rhythmic electronics’ of Mighty Lord Deathman, and the second from killer noise quartet We Wild Blood, currently working on their second studio album.
