Metal 101- The Black Metaller by LusoSkav 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

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

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

NOW THAT"S EPIC :D
I listen to black metal and i know a lot of people like that - no matter the gender.
"Odinist and satanist at the same time" PHAHHA

Off course I know a lot of black metals that are not like that but this is an archetype after all. And t's quite true for some :D

Needs Doomsters, Prog metal snobs and gothic metal...guys. Other than that, spot on and great :) Kinda nostalgic too since I'm 29 next month and I'm not really part of the subculture that actively.

Well after going through all your Metalheads and not recognising myself in any, I get to the last one, and here I am.

You need a Doom/Stoner/Drone Metalhead for your archive too.
-Long hair, filthy yet appears exceptionally groomed
-Faded T-shirt of a band with "bong" in the name, with many holes in
-Often Japanese and very quiet
-Fascination with nature and death
-Heavy weed/drink/psychedelic drug usage

How come they don't put on heavy coats of black mascera around their eyes? That's if they wanted to go FREAKY like Marylin Mason.
