Metal 101- The Thrasher by LusoSkav Metal 101- The Thrasher 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 didn't like the female stereotypes you did, as I am a female and fit none of them. But I like this cause this is me. Minus the unclear ethnicity. But I love how thrash is a haven for minorities and I'm definitely leftist. And love beer. Ratty sneakers, check. I want a 100 dollar bullet belt but, saving for recordings instead. Hate the fake bullet belts at hot topic. Maybe one day I'll have the real thing...

Well i have elements of almost all of them, but if i had to choose I'd say i'm a mix between the folk and the black metaller :)

This is me. The only difference is my goatee (styled after Scott Ian) and straight edge life-style (which is pretty punk in its own right).
