Metal 101- The Death Metaller by LusoSkav Metal 101- The Death 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

and DA is retarded and won't let me post the full title

I used to be able to pig-squeal on command until I got a terrible asthma attack and acute bronchitis and kept coughing for a few weeks. Then, when I thought I was better, I decided to jam along to a few songs. Then I discovered that I messed up my vocal cords because of coughing excessively. I can't even do any extreme vocal technique now.
Tragedy. I could have been this guy. (Except for the beer/smoke part and the long hair)

More of a Tech Death Metal guy, but this sounds a lot like me, Baggy camo pants, somewhat out of shape, I don't hate deathcore, but its not a genre that suits my taste, the only deathcore band I like is the early days of Job for a Cowboy before they turned death metal, I can't pig squeel, but I know different growling techniques, but I'm not good at it, its not something I do often, and Slouchy Posture.

looks like a guy I used to know named ''Weasel'' except he was more into sludge and doom metal than death metal.

"Can probably pig-squeal on command"
That's just spot on!
