The Underground World of Extreme Metal
In the depths of the darkness Metal has evolved into many sub genres, but in all the shadows and behind the corpse-paint, metal spikes and leather there is a passion, skill, raw emotion and solidarity the music shares among its own scene, unknown to the rest of the world. Brutal and beautiful, often dismissed as noise to the untrained ear, there is more than meets the eye in this little known genre. Assumptions and stereotypes blind people to the true beauty of the art form and ignore the solidarity and release it provides. These images aim to capture that skill, emotion and solidarity whilst providing a glimpse into this underground culture that is found all through the world.
