Greatest Hits: Fear

September 30 will mark seven years since my very first review here at Invisible Oranges. I’ve had the privilege of sharing this space with some truly talented writers over that time period, and I still look forward to reading each day’s entries as a fan. One of my favorite pieces published on Invisible Oranges was written by my colleague Justin Norton, examining two of my favorite topics – metal and fear – and their relationship with each other, as well as our broader culture and society. It’s much longer than most things we post, or anyone else posts for that matter, but that’s what I like about it: there is a depth and analysis that has nothing to do with clicks or a top 10 or any other Internet LCD. Tracing the history of heavy metal’s indelible relationship with our lizard brain’s fascination with what goes bump in the night, and intertwining that with his own early bonding steps with the genre, makes for an enjoyable and erudite read. I would like to think that more websites and writers should follow Norton’s lead with features like this, but a talent like his is few and far between.
