Are Metallers The Most Loyal Music Fans?
New research suggests that you guys stay true to your bands more than any other fanbase... Is this true?
For many fans, metal represents much more than just another form of entertainment – it’s a way of life.
The fact that we’re discussing this subject in a long-running magazine dedicated to metal is testament to how much we as a community care about our music. We not only listen to it; we read about it, talk about it, watch videos about it, go to see it live, wear clothes inspired by it and, most of all, identify as metal fans. Just as importantly, metal fans tend to keep on listening to metal. Take a visit to the likes of Wacken or Bloodstock and you’ll see devotees in their second, third, fourth even fifth decade of metal-listening.
