Scott Lipkowitz & Heavy Metal History


Scott Lipkowitz is an avid enthusiast of history, travel, books, and heavy metal.

Winston Churchill, whom Scott holds in high regard, once said that "To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often." In that spirit, Scott recently embarked upon a new journey: entering the field of librarianship.

After spending eleven years as a camera technician in the film & television industry, it was evident that the time had come to seek out a career more closely aligned with his interests: history, reading, and the acquisition of knowledge. Thus, in January of 2017 Scott began work on a dual Masters degree in Library Science and History at the GSLIS at CUNY Queens College; ultimately aspiring to hold a position as a research librarian in one of the New York area's prestigious research libraries.

Scott's work can be found on the History and Moral Philosophy Blog and the Historical Reference website.

Heavy Metal History

History and Heavy Metal have a rich association. The glory, the drama, the tragedy, and the gory make the history of our species endlessly fascinating, and provide fodder for some epic heavy metal compositions \m/.

Here, for your listening pleasure, is a list of Scott's top five heavy metal history songs (and yes he promises they aren't all from Iron Maiden):

  • 1741 (The Battle of Cartagena) by Alestorm

  • Paschendale by Iron Maiden

  • The March of the Varangian Guard by Turisas

  • Bastille Day by Rush

  • The Trooper by Iron Maiden
