For this week’s metal history lesson, Ian Christe (“Sound of the Beast”/Bazillion Points) traces decades of Detroit and Michigan innovation, including the early punk and hard rock of the Stooges and Death; the hardcore assault of Negaative Approach and the Meatmen; the grindcore godfathers Repulsion; and modern day motor-vators Battlecross and the Black Dahlia Murder. Raise your leather gloves for the mighty Mitten State, and know your Roots!
