Metal 101- The Black Metaller

By LusoSkav

So, after a few years passing, and many, many metal shows attended, i couldn't help but to notice the diferent archetypes and demographics in the metalhead culture that i kept coming across.
And since i never saw any kind of descriptive charts that accurately portrayed the metal subculture i so dearly know and love, i decided to do it myself!

So, based on people that i know, people that i merely saw, often or not that often, and on blunt personal experience, i began scribbling out a few, and constructed many more in my mind, which is to say, that there will be quite a few before i'm done.

Also remember this is not meant to offend. It's all harmless satire, more often than not :)

So yes. Hope you enjoy Luso's Handy Guide to Metalheads

I still remember when I first got into metal, then I found these. Still golden, even after all of these years

You need the old metalhead like me: raised on Iron Butterfly, Sabbath, Deep Purple; listened to Maiden, Priest, Slayer, Anthrax in high school, tried virtually all the subcategories; generally easygoing and happy, except when talking about how 'metal doesn't get the attention it deserves'; wears old jeans and very old tour shirts, work boots; shaved head--better to avoid the bald spot XD

Gotta love dem boots, though. With my kicks and those boots, I'd destroy concrete walls......maybe walls of moshers...nah that's unprofessional

Throw atheist in the mix and drop the smoking, then it's me spot on! :)

This seems more like this is describing those metal elitists more than black metallers.

Hmm. I have a crewcut, don't smoke at all, and definitely not on the skinny side, but otherwise yup. :D (The goatee thing is probably only for males? lol) Also, the jacket is not worn often because I'm heat intolerant, but I've got one :3
