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.

i like to think my band takes the best of metal, death metal and deathcore, after all… genres definitions are different to everyone.… - free songs of ours

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.
