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 always wondered why thrash was really popular with South Americans.

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...

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).

ROFL, it's true. And this coming from an anthropologist. Considering I live in a hispanic country, we hispanics are the majority, but the highest number of people that's not mestizo/white at metal concerts are usually thrashers. Same happens in the States from what I've been able to see...maybe it's because of how diverse the members of thrash metal bands are? For example, there's Chuck Billy from Testament, who's native american, Scott Ian from Anthrax who is jewish, Sepultura's Derrick Green who's black, Tom Araya, etc., etc.

I know right? considering how 'white' metal usually is, thrash seems to attract an unusually high number of non-white ethnicities. The band member thing -may- have something to do with it, definitely, but something had to attract those band members to thrash in the first place.

I've thought about the fact that the bay area scene was one of the main forefronts of thrash development, and that that area might've been somewhat multicultural, but that wouldn't really explain why is this a world-wide (apparently) phenomenon when it comes to thrashers. It must be something in the music that appeals to minorities more than usual, i dunno, lol

If you see a guy like this with unclear ethnic origin, it is appropriate to classify their race as "kirkhammet"
