Mean Deviation book, by Jeff Wagner

$19.99

Mean Deviation: Four Decades of Progressive Heavy Metal
Author: Jeff Wagner

Published in late 2010, Wagner’s first book explores what happens when metal grows up and dares to combine sex and violence with sax and violins. Mean Deviation details four decades of deviant brainy metal, from the quirky math magic of King Crimson and Meshuggah to the cranium crunch of Fates Warning, Rush, and Voivod. Charting the vectors from bizarre Texas tech metallers Watchtower to Sweden’s refined Opeth, Mean Deviation tears the heavy metal best from its cave and thrusts the mutant wild-eyed into a weird world of dangerous time signature, bitter suits, and killing technology.

364 pages plus 16-page color spread, cover artwork by Michel “Away” Langevin and a foreword by Steven Wilson.
