Metal 101- The Folk Metaller by LusoSkav Metal 101- The Folk 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'm not this person -- I'm more the Power Metaller -- but am likely to be friends with him!

He really reminds me of Jonne Järvelä when he still had normal hair! I'd love to be the female version of this, but apparently I'm too young :( and un-nordic

Since I started going to the bloodstock festival ive been seeing a lot more of these guys, they are pretty fun to hang around, one time i met a guy who went around offering people to take a swig of his own brand of moonshine and bite of his grandmothers homemade goat sausage, it was quite nice actually.

I've thought I like alcohol because nationality, no metal kind XDDD

You could add folk metaler usualy interest in history. There is pleanty of them in historical reenactment events not only as a tourist. Well, shaking a sword or axe is needed. :XD:
