Ever ask yourself "how are metalheads so different from one another yet kind of the same?" Whenever I talk to someone who likes the same band as me, I wonder if they went through the same experience while listening to said band's music, did they feel the same things, think the same thoughts while hearing the lyrics ect. How much does one's own life experiences and temperament influence musical taste? How much does musical taste influence life experiences and temperament? If there is some kind of correlation between these things, is there some sort of unified trait all metalheads share? PS. I posted this in another forum. I didn't really get many good answers I'll give here a shot.
