Heaviness in Metal Music Production

The project ‘Heaviness in Metal Music Production’ (HiMMP) sets out to explore heaviness as the metal genre’s central quality feature. It will show how heaviness is created sonically on the record and also, how leading metal producers define it and as such process and control its constituent aspects when mixing recordings. Heaviness in metal music can be created in different ways so it will be studied how genre, composition and performance determine technical mixing requirements. Ultimately, it will be evaluated what impact technical requirements have on the producer’s personal style, their aesthetic intentions and on genre conventions.

ahr The project is supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) in the United Kingdom.
