HEAVY METAL. My father described the Heavy Metal subculture fashion as a mix of Biker and Punk fashion and I have to say I agree. While the descriptions I was given from my sources aren't as over the top as this pin, the leather, studs and darkness of it all portray the correct image. Their demeanour is different to bikies and punks as heavy metal enthusiasts were described to me as members of a male dominated subculture with strong beliefs in the dark side of life, without being Satanic.
