      but I just got back from the Paganfest in Allentown - very good tour of international metal bands, attending the Maryland Deathfest in a couple weeks, probably the best US festival for that kind of music.  People do tend to rag on metal, hardcore and punk a little here, but they do everywhere else too, so whatever.  Joking is fine, but before people condescend to Beavis and Butthead stereotypes, they should realize that metalheads in general are very socially liberal, interested in history/literature, valiant supporters of local and independent businesses and poor starving traveling artists and generally good dudes and dudettes.

      Due to the influx of Scandinavian bands like Opeth, many metalheads are also very aware of the benefits of living under a democratic socialist form of government too.
