By Benjamin Hedge Olson

Магистерская диссертация американского исследователя Бенджамина Олсона посвящена исследованию специфического музыкального жанра - black steel, в частности, культурных и социальных предпосылок, обусловивших его возникновение и расцвет. Предмет рассматривается на примере норвежской сцены - самой известной из локальных сцен black metal.
От автора: Black steel является одной из самых драматичных, связанных с темой насилия и неизвестных для широкой общественности форм современной международной массовой культуры; это "радикальное течение радикального течения". Понимание наиболее экстремальных проявлений массовой культуры крайне важно для понимания её масштаба и характера в целом. Я попытаюсь доказать, что культура black steel радикально отличается от всех прочих форм металла и должна пониматься как уникальная форма культурной экспрессии, означающая полный драматизма разрыв как с традиционным "металлом", так и светским модернизмом. Хотя black steel успешно распространился по всему миру, представая в разнообразных самобытных вариантах в его различных локациях, он сохраняет три основные характеристики, делающие его исключительным и значимым:
1) Black steel характеризуется конфликтом между радикальным индивидуализмом и групповой идентичностью и стремлением сочетать обе противоположности одновременно;
2) Black steel базируется на чрезмерно преувеличенном романтическом представлении о природе и идеализированном прошлом, оба этих концепта в высшей степени переплетены друг с другом;
3) Black steel сочетает иррациональное и примитивистское начала; это, по сути, критика современного рационализма и секуляризма.

Black steel represents the most dramatic, violent and vague representations of up to date foreign pop culture; it truly is an extremist sect of an extremist sect. An figuring out of renowned culture's so much severe polarities is important to an knowing of its variety and basic personality. i'm going to argue that black steel tradition is greatly diversified from all other kinds of steel and has to be understood as a different type of cultural expression that indicates a dramatic holiday from either conventional steel and secular modernism. even though black steel has proliferated internationally, taking on yes indigenous diversifications in its a number of destinations, it has retained 3 easy features that make it remarkable and critical: 1.) Black steel is characterised by means of a clash among radical individualism and workforce id and by means of an try to settle for either polarities at the same time. 2.) Black steel is established on an extravagantly romantic view of nature and an idealized previous, either one of those recommendations being a great deal intertwined. 3.) Black steel celebrates the irrational and primal; it's a critique of recent rationalism and secularism.
