Metal 101- The Deathcore kid by LusoSkav Metal 101- The Deathcore kid by LusoSkav
This was one i debated for some time wether to make/submit or not, because, arguably, deathcore doesn't have anything to do with metal. Well, despite me, personally, not considering it "real" metal, i believe it is still relevant to this series, taking into account how much it borrows from metal, and how close its own subculture runs in with metal sometimes.

The accuracy on this one may be a little less spot on than on the others, seeing as i never really attended many deathcore shows, and mostly based this off of a handfull of friends of mine mostly into deathcore.

I kind if wanted to refrain using the "deathcore kid" denomination, as i feel it may be somewhat derrogatory, but honestly, i couldnt find anything that sounded any better.

in any case, here's one more for the series.



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

Guess I'm a Brutal Death Metaller. Deathcore Kids are a fucking joke. Deathcore has nothing to do with metal and is no way an "evolution" of death metal. That's insulting to actual metal heads. These are great though. Funny as hell.

Sad thing is 90% of deathcore is crap and sounds exactly the same(Waking The Cadaver is the worst. Blegh). But there are some decent deathcore bands,that don't try to COPY EACH OTHER.

That bit about them either being super-nice or complete douchebags is spot on. Though I gotta admit, I have disdain for this genre and its fans despite myself, because it's fuckin' everywhere and most of it is bad.

I'm intrigued, why wouldn't you consider it Metal? Given, the majority of Deathcore bands (which also happen to be the shittiest examples of 'decent' Deathcore) like; Suicide Silence, Emmure, Chelsea Grin, I Declare War, and Dr. Acula completely suck ass. These bands shouldn't make people disregard actually good bands that do the genre justice, to name a couple; Slice the Cake, Veil of Maya, and All Shall Perish which are great examples to portray the genre in a good lighting. Deathcore, for lack of better terms, would be... Hm, an 'evolution' of Death Metal (saying this, I'm NOT saying obsolete or dead, simply stating that this genre came from another one). The genre itself consists of breakdowns, growling and screaming which are all prevalent in one sub-genre of Death Metal to another, definitely not just in one.
Eh, just my thoughts on the whole thing. I listen to every genre of Metal. Just thought I spread my opinion around on one of the many.

I dunno, i dont necessarily consider it non-metal.. but at the same time i dont really consider it proper metal.

I do admit and accept it has in it some derivative form of metal (some bands more than others), but i always think it to be more closely related to hardcore, and maybe even punk, a little.
I'm talking about the music, aswell as the fans, mentality, and philosophy, if you will, and that whole package i find it to be pretty removed from what metal usually is.
However, unlike most metal fans i dont really have anything against it or shun it, i just consider it something mostly on the outskirts of the metal world. I enjoy a couple of bands, even.

I call them bro-jock metalers.

If not exactly that, you should add the Metaller that always has buzz cut, wears "Tapout" shirts as they love UFC and claim they could be in it, has barbed wire tattoo on upper-arm, usually built and listens to Nu Metal and Rap Metal. We have a lot of those in America, they ruined metal with their false sense of metal knowledge, over aggressivene "one up man, better than you" juck mentality, "You mad Bro?", "Come at me Bro!", general douchebags and are too afraid to listen to Morbid Angel, Gorgoroth, Deicise, Carcass or anything like that but claims Limp Bizkit, Slipnot, Disturbed, Korn are the hardest badass shit there is. Also has no knowledge of the real metal history, saying Led Zeplin, Judas Preist, Iron Maiden (can you believe that?) are all gay "Only pussies listen to that shit, bro!".

Wondering what you thought :D

I find this very funny. I like deathcore a lot and metal. I think anything that heavy is considered metal. Anyone else is just an elitist like the faggot who said we're bitches and homosexual. Good stuff you got here though I enjoyed reading all of these. You should make a frilly scene kid. I think a lot of metal heads get the deathcore kids confused with those a lot lol

Funny thing how we metalheads keep on using "homosexual" and "gay" as an insult when Rob Halford, Gaahl, and plenty more of our idols of metal manliness are gay.

I love your work by the way! You really know your stuff.
