Abstract: Remiantis Deenos Weinstein pasiūlytais garsiniu, verbaliniu ir vizualiniu kodais straipsnyje nagrinėjama jaunimo sociokultūrinės grupės – Lietuvos metalistų subkultūros – konstruojamo kolektyvinio identiteto raiška, atsispindinti savitoje šios subkultūros medijoje – fanzinuose.

The article presents a part of the empirical research on the Lithuanian metal music subcultural identity as it is portrayed in its media, the fanzines. The article aims at exploring the forms of the collective identity of the expressive youth socio-cultural group (subculture) as it is presented by the specific media. Through their verbal and visual texts, the fanzines present the ideas and views of three structural parts of the subculture: the musicians, the fans and the media (editors and publishers). However, they do not include any “other” external parts which would be interested in the commerce and profit. For that reason, fanzines acquire their special traits and gain the possibilities not only to delineate and reinforce the standards of the metal music subculture, but also to participate in the formation and maintenance of the collective identity of this socio-cultural group. As claimed by Deena Weinstein (2000), the name of the metal music subculture comes from the name of a musical genre, thus the music is the main emblem of this sub-cultural group, but it is not its reason for the existence. In her analysis of the metal music sub-culture, Weinstein (2000) originally singled out three codes – sonic, verbal, and visual – that were inherent to the given sub-culture. The idea of such codes was employed in the analysis of the identity of the Lithuanian metal music subculture. The empirical research of fanzines revealed that the identity of the Lithuanian metal music subculture manifests itself not only in its sonic, visual and verbal forms, but also in the existence of one more very important level which in the present article is referred to as an ideological code (worldviews, cultural ideas, opposition, protests, etc).[...]
