What Kind Of Metalhead Are You, According To Your Zodiac?

Updated July 15, 2019 14k views12 items

When it comes to learning about who you really are, the zodiac is one of the most important tools for gaining insight into your personal journey. It shows you what kind of friend you are, the job you’d be best at, and it can even show you what kind of metalhead you are. Regardless of who you are, there’s some kind of metal that appeals to you, and it’s likely that your zodiac sign will help you align your taste. 

Even if you don’t think you’re a metalhead, the zodiac begs to differ. There’s something inherently tying you to one genre or another, be it deathcore or nu metal, that’s written in the stars. Strap on your vest, crank up some Black Sabbath, and throw up the devil horns because it’s time to figure out what kind of metalhead you are. 

  • Aries (March 21 - April 19): Stoner Rock Metalhead

    Ariens lean into whatever they're doing, be it a conversation, a relationship, or jamming out to dense groove-based metal. They don't concern themselves with what people think of them, so if someone doesn't think they're hardcore enough, an Aries pays them no mind. 

    This sign isn't afraid to try something new, be it a collection of Kyuss demos or a local band that's influenced by Sleep. When it comes to life and metal for Ariens, if there's no risk, then there's no reward. 

  • Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Doom Metalhead

    This sign definitely has a tendency to give into their own personal gloom. If there's a cloudy day during the summer, they get bummed beyond measure, and sometimes, the weight of the world just makes them want to close the blinds and turn up the Sunn O)))

    Don't mistake a Taurean for a sad sack, they love life and everything that it brings. They've got expensive tastes and don't shy away from dropping an entire paycheck on Orange amplifiers and Russian overdrive pedals. Repeat, overdrive, not distortion. 

  • Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Progressive Metalhead


    Some signs hang back when it comes to their personal taste, but not a Gemini; they're happy to tell you all about the new classical-inspired, space-age prog metal band from Japan that just dropped a new 7" single. 

    It's important to keep in mind that Geminis aren't just talking to talk; they genuinely love whatever they're into and want to share it with their friends. This is a genre that favors thought-out, intricate melodies over getting hardcore, which makes it perfect for a Gemini.

  • Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Trophy Metalhead

    In the same way that it's hard to know exactly what a Cancer is thinking, it's nearly impossible to discern what a trophy metalhead actually listens to. They go to all the shows, they look great in black, but no one's ever seen their record collection. 

    This isn't to say that Cancers are closed off to everyone, like those goldstar heavy metal folks they keep their friends and loved ones close.

    It takes a long time for someone new to work their way into the good graces of a Cancer in the same way that someone has to work hard to be invited to a party thrown by a trophy metalhead.
