Metal 101- The Young Metalhead by LusoSkav Metal 101- The Young Metalhead by LusoSkav
Of course shying away from the genres themselves ridiculously now and just getting into splitting hairs

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 met a little girl one of these at a Nightwish concert! She had come a very long way with her mom to get to the show, and it was her birthday. I let her get in front of me.

nearly a perfect picture of how i was when i was younger. my attitude was similar to the Nu-Metal kid, though; i put the blame on teenage angst and bullying... oh yeah, and the fact that i was 1 of only 4 true metalheads in the whole fucking school!

today, i say i'm more of a rocker than a metalhead. i listen to more classic rock now, but i still love metal of all kinds.
