Metal 101- The Mainstreamallica Fan by LusoSkav Metal 101- The Mainstreamallica Fan by LusoSkav
Well hello

sorry for the lack of updates, but i've been working in getting my art mojo back. its coming back, slowly but surely i think

this one may be a little more... venomous than the other ones i believe, haha. guess because ive met some of these guys who rubbed me the wrong way

in any case, here it is! enjoy

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

Metallica is pretty rad, but my metal heart lies else where

Oooo, I totally recognize these types. I separate these "metal douches" from normal metal heads, for a reason.

Tool is not an underground band that makes your tastes deep and eclectic, they are an interesting and talented band that makes your tastes varied. Now if it's Meshuggah, then you're listening to an underground band that makes your tastes deep and eclectic.

Typical Metallica fanboys:

They own 40 Metallica CDs and still don't know anything about Metal.

They couldn't name another Bay Area Thrash band besides Metallica.

Mention 'Bonded By Blood' and they look at you like you're from Mars.

This species is not a Metalhead; It goes without saying.

Ladies and gentlemen, my brother in all his glory.
He said Iron Maiden is not metal, even though they influenced Metllica. It's hopeless.

Oh dear....I had a history teacher like this my junior year of high school. Although he was a good guy, he was more so on the lines of "Death metal? Fuck yeah!! METALLICA, RAMMSTEIN, & LED ZEPPELIN, MAN!!!" or my personal favorite "What's black metal?"

The worse part about it was that the rest of the students knew him as a metalhead and would always question certain bands, genres, etc. and lead them terribly astray aside from the typical "The Devil Wears Prada is crap." (Which I don't disagree with)

He probably blogs immensely about every little detail about every little event that has happened to him or on stage; And I'll bet he can be an intense commentator and lectures about certain aspects of metal that only HE Prefers.
