Fox Lee BackgroundThe sexy fast-paced tone of the novel Into the Darkness mirrors the heavy metal music that provided the backdrop to the writing of the book.

The following list is provided by author Fox Lee.  Many of these songs (and perhaps a craft beer and/or several mixed drinks) were the actual music that provided the pace and vibe for the book.
