So i'm fortunate enough to have convinced one of my college professors to let me do an independent study which investigates the influence of American fiction on Metal and it's various sub genres, as well as how these genres and artists handle the literature in their music. I got the idea simply because I love both things, and also Mastodon's Leviathan is one of my favorite albums. So i'm using that album as the primary element of my study, but i was wondering if anyone here could think of other artists/songs/albums that have a connection to themes/authors/novels of American fiction. It would be extremely helpful to me. So far I have the following: Metallica - For Whom the Bell Tolls = Hemingway novel Led Zeppelin - Moby Dick (Obvious i would think) As I Lay Dying = Name of one of William Faulkner's more famous novels Any others you guys can think of?!
