Metal 101- The Power Metaller by LusoSkav Metal 101- The Power Metaller by LusoSkav
By popular demand, here it is!

Now, this one, moreso than any other, I had to make by means of deduction, since Power Metal fans are very, very few around these parts, but hopefully this is accurate enough.


also im getting kinda sick of pasting this footer in here everyime i do these, them words just kinda piss me off now haha

oh well

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

This is great, I can see a few bits of this in myself aswell. Make's me proud to be a fan of Power Metal.

I would like to keep swords but when it comes to metal it's a warhammer for me.

Heavy Metal 
Sadly, I'm not much of a reader so I haven't read many fantasy novels (including LOTR, please don't judge) and I'm nowhere near as much of a Tolkien geek as I'd like to be. Other than those, this fits me perfectly!
Fits exactly for me :D, Especially the part with the swords!

Kinda sums me up... Almost too well. Am I THAT predictable??

I don't but I will be using your gallery as an I-Spy book for Hammerfest next week, and I know I've seen every one of them in Bloodstock so will tick them off as I go. I only need to look in a mirror though to see this one.

hah! that's sounds like a  pretty fun game to play actually, i just might try that myself on the next festival i go to

There's probably even a few regulars who don't appear in the gallery. (Not meaning to sound like a war vet, but...) I've seen some things in my time.
