Ways you can tell its a pseudo heavy metal website:

-If it's in black

-if you see devilhorn-salutes everywhere (goes without saying)

-if you see pictures of dragons, monsters or warriors or other cheesy stuff

-if its got words like blood, axes, breed, warrior, hell in the title of the site

-if they try to sound dedicated and use phrases like 'metal to the bone', 'metal for life, 'totall fuckin metal' in the websites title. 

-if you see stuff that has nothing to do with music like Simpsons, Animea, Star Wars, Computer Games and ofcourse World Of Warcraft.

-if they talk in an annoying ironic way as if they are not totally sincere

-if they use irony language like 'epic fail' 'clusterfuck' or 'yay'

-if they use the word 'metal' to describe hardrock bands

-if they have 'hardrock' and 'heavy metal' as two separate catagory's even though it means exactly the same

-if they feel sympathetic to punk.

-if they use faux-intellectual words like 'aesthetic', 'consensus' or 'stereotyping' even though we all know that metal is completely retarded music.

-if they have all these irritating memes everywhere that are totally not funny

-if they have avatars with moving pictures in them that just work on your nerves

-if they use an ugly grey metalic colour.

-if they use computergame style graphics

-if your cursor suddenly changes into a devilhorn-salute.

-if they call symphonic rock bands from the early 70s like Yes, Pink Floyd Focus or Emerson, Lake & Palmer etc. "prog" or "progrock".
