Description Metal music is to large extent a rather masculine affair. The same applies for Pagan and Folk metal, which are widespread metal subgenres in Central and Eastern Europe. Aside from revering nature, Pagan and Folk metal thematically often focuses on the ethos of pagan warrior, from which is the image of a male derived in this music. This paper describes the way how is the male gender image of Pagan warriors in Pagan and Folk metal music created, represented and reproduced.
