Heavy Metal Islam by Mark Levine

Book Description

An 18-year-old Moroccan who loves Black Sabbath. A 22-year-old rapper from the Gaza Strip.

Mark LeVine tells the story of an aspect of modern Middle Eastern culture that seldom makes it into the news, but is nevertheless hugely important to the people living there today.
