Most 'old-school' brought up, now mostly former, metalheads know and respect MDB, although there's no 'mass' following, so to speak. This veneration is somewhat symbolic and distanced. People who are now 25 and older have mostly parted their ways with metal and gone into 'real' life with getting married, children, earning money and general bleakness. Younger generation can in general be divided into 2 main categories: those who like everything that makes a good deal of noise (Manowar and Cannibal Corpse come to my mind immediately) and still younger ones, late teens, in love with popular emo- and death- and metalcore :( It was my best friend, a girl, who introduced me to MDB, she'd listened to them since secondary school. All the rest of my close friends' circle had literally no choice - it was me who always got most good stuff, and anytime we spoke about a band or whatever, I told 'em: yeah, it's good, but you haven't heard MDB... - what's that? - holy shit!!! You don't know?!!! U musta bee kidding... - So, now there are some 4 or 5 diehard fans, but founding fathers don't enjoy much interest, imbecile emokids blah!

Romania's beautiful, my dream place is Iceland, but the goddamn crisis would probably leave scars on people's consciousness for a long time to come, no traveling there in view, unfortunately. Sorry, off-topic:)

I know more people over 25 that listen to metal than below that tbh but then again most over 25/30 don't show it outside what they listen to. I started listening to metal since my dad listens to it, he still listens to it and he's 51 :D I'm 25, divorced, have a kid and work but no way I'm giving up on metal. :P

The context is crucial, I guess: my place (5000 town in a larger urban agglomeration) is rather conservative in a very basic sense, and metal as a 'hobby' is acceptable and tolerated in the first place among younger folks. When you're a bit older and still in metal, it's considered 'weird' or unserious. Then again, if you're younger you tend to accept challenges, later on most people just grow weary and conform. It's not exactly so black-and-white, besides things are changing rapidly. As for me, I'm a late-comer to metal, having converted only in my late teens, and I don't look metal, don't act metal, but by now, it's become a real part of my personality (if there's any) - I cannot be otherwise:) We'll see...
Btw., whatever the number of fans is, there are enough of them to get MDB to play in Ukraine - now we have tons of bands every weekend, and there are really high-profile agencies in metal business, I hope this will happen really soon:) We aren't far, we're friendly, we rock blah-blah...

It is the same if someone was into comics and other things because you are form the same place as atila Cashter of Mayhem and he is in his forties and still does vocals.But anyway we are getting way off-topic.

I don't know exactly how many chilean metalheads like MDB, but they seem to be popular here, because most of those who aren't doom metal fans associate doom metal with MDB. Although here in Chile we have an amazing band like Mar de Grises, doom metal isn't popular as it should be. The biggest genre here has always been thrash metal (Pentagram, Criminal, Necrosis, etc etc etc).

Not popular at all in Sweden, unfortunately...
For some reason doom metal in general (or at least the gothic, doom/death variety) is not very big here. Metal fans in Sweden seem to prefer either melodic/classical metal or death/black. It has become a little bit better in recent years, but it is still very uncommon for doom metal bands to play live here.
