Metal 101- The Pantera Guy by LusoSkav Metal 101- The Pantera Guy by LusoSkav
So you thought this was gonna be just about fans of certain metal subgenres did you?

Well, think again because there's much more to the concert going crowd than sub genre segregation!

And you know that disclaimer i usually put down there about this not being meant to offend?

Consider this an exception. Fuck this guy. Fuck him right in the ass

seriously. he sucks.

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

A friend went to a concert and he saw a combination of this and the drunk shirtless guy. Probably moshing at the front and annoying everyone. The mental picture is just disturbing.
Please make one about Djent fans!!
Djent is rather new,so we don't have a Djent fan archetype.

I like just about every Metal and Metal sub-genre. That  being said I've never been to a concert before but I REALLY REALLY wanna go and two of the things I want to do are:


Crowd surf(I'm 5'4 with a medium build and I'm not heavy)


Be in the Mosh Pit


But as for this dude, he's a jerk. I know that for sure.

lol! that's hysterical XD
You know what I hate the most...
When the news media always chooses to focus in on THIS kinda guy when discussing metalheads. These guys or black metal fans (due to the make-up; they often use death metal music though). Like metal either never got past the '80s when the vast majority of metalheads probably were perpetually half-sober, 3/4 drunk anti-intellectuals whose main form of communication were cavemen grunts with women's clothing on or is all Satan, Satan, Satan Fuck You, Hail Satan
