Hey. Im wondering if I could get a few people to help me out here Im finally about to graduate college (w00t), and as one of my final project Im to select a style tribe and create a lecture based on research and findings of said group, and Ive picked Metal (obviously ), and Im presenting to a panel of students and professionals alike. I dont expect anyone to answer all questions, or any questions at all, but Id like to get feedback from individuals who actually live this lifestyle instead of trolling on the internet and just getting crap from various websites from experts. The questions are cheesy and mildly lame, but Ill get what I need from them. Troll if youd like, I really wont mind. Id just appreciate any answers. Id be representing your answers in my presentation by your username, so full names arent needed. Or you can just call me out on anything thats wrong or that Ive misrepresented, or that is just flat out retarded. Thatd be nice too, so I dont make a total dick out of myself. 1. How did you get into Metal, or who got you into Metal? What about it attracted you? 2. If you had to pick one song that epitomizes Metal to you, what would it be? a. What about one album? b. One artist? 3. What sub-genre of Metal do you think has been most influential to the genre as a whole? (Doom, Black, Speed, Thrash, etc.) Why? 4. What is your opinion on interactive music centered video games such as Rock Band or Guitar Hero? Do you like or dislike them? Do you think it has positively or negatively influenced the genre since the first game release? 5. What are your religious beliefs/affiliations, if you have any? Feel free to discuss or skip this question to your own will. 6. In the UK, many census takers listed their religion as Heavy Metal. What are your thoughts on this phenomena? 7. What are your political beliefs? What do you believe are the most important/most damning issues in our world? Feel free to discuss or skip this question at your own will. 8. What about a person makes them Metal? Are there any defining characteristics that make a Metalhead? 9. What does your style consist of? What are some important clothing articles to you, or items you think every Metalhead would or should own? If you have any questions for me, feel free to ask.
