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

Scandinavian folk metal is the best metal.  This picture describes who I am on the inside, though on the outside I look like a Blink182 fan. I really hate Blink182.

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:

You might think that the "folk pit" is a joke, but it is not. You will literally see circle dances in the pit at folk metal shows. It's amazing.
