Hi I am a metal fan and my ethnicity is Pakistani. I've been a metal head for many years now (about 4 years) ,I'm 22Years old. Anyways the thing is that metal scene here is totally non existent. I have not come across a single person yet that likes metal music I mean there are fans of commerically super successful bands like Linkin Park and Metallica but that's about it. Almost anyother band is unheard of but My concern is that do metalheads in west think that metal is not for brown persons or do they find it weird that a brown person likes metal? I mean if a person from pakistan is in a metal band or concert will you think that its umm weird or something?
Sorry if anything in my post offends anyone, I have absolutely no such intentions .

And yea btw my fave. Bands are Nightwish, Bullet for my Valentine, Within temptation, Hammerfall, Amaranthe, Soilwork (if that helps)

Nah. South Americans are probably the most nuts metal fans on the planet, Japan is pretty dedicated too. Sure it's a predominatly anglo saxon thing but I doubt you'll find many metalheads outside of the tiny white power crowd who think metal has any racial boundaries.
