New Interview with Nick Dunn for Cambridge University's Massive Metal Survey!
7/3/2019 by Frank Hill

Headbangers all over the world know that heavy metal is a style that explores a wide range of emotional qualities--anger, despair, depression, relief, triumph; emotions we feel but cannot always name. Academic study of metal's emotional qualities is a bit scant, but now there is a large research project underway that needs your input.

In association with Cambridge University, music website PureGrainAudio is teaming up with Musical Universe to bring you a massive metal survey! With this survey, PGA are asking for emotional and intellectual responses to 33 musical excerpts that represent over 15 subgenres of metal. The information gained will be analyzed by psychologists at Cambridge and aims to be published in a scientific journal as well as an article on PureGrainAudio. After completing the survey you will instantly receive your musical engagement, personality, and well-being scores.

We had a chance to speak with one of the project's personnel, Nick Dunn, about the survey. We also took it with one of our results at the end. Check it out here...[Full Interview Link]
