I posted this in the books thread but I figure it might have appeal outside of that. In a nutshell, some guy from Ireland hung out with The Stone for a year and wrote his PhD thesis on it. I found it a while back and remember it being pretty interesting overall (especially his 'review' of seeing Temnozer and Absurd live Very Happy).

Haven't heard a single Serbian BM band.

Heard a 7" from The Stone once. Not bad.

250+ pages for a "scene" that virtually consists of a few hundred fans nationwide and less than a dozen minor bands? One can't say the guy has the gift of synthesis.

Seriously though, I live in Belgrade and let me tell you, this country doesn't offer much to metal fans. Gigs are only seldom organized and rather expensive for local standards (tickets are like €15-20, mind you an average salary is like €350-400 here and the cost of life only marginally lower than in the rest of Europe), cds just don't sell and the only metal shop run out of business two years ago. There's one rock club with a decent offer of live music but hardly something I'll consider interesting enough to pay more than one visit a month.

First album of Simargal and Hram Krvi i Praznine of Mor are underrated...
Somebody should release Mor on vinyl....

So, you can become a doctor with such a topic in Ireland? Interesting.

Apparently so. Recently in Finland some guy wrote a thesis about the finnish black metal scene.

And then they become professors and recruit their own adepts.

Let's be honest, being given a research grant to document black metal (consisting in large part, probably, of going to a bunch of shows), would be pretty convenient. I wonder how much of his stipend went toward band merchandise, hehe.
