ASMR for Metalheads

Ephemeral Rift
Published 4 years ago

Dedicated to all the metalheads out there who not only enjoy the best genre of music in existence, but dedicated especially to those who may have felt or been treated like an outcast, have been or still are misunderstood or judged, or even bullied, whether it's the music they like or how they dress.

This is not a straight up ASMR session. Sprinkled among the crinkling and tapping are this ephemeral human's thoughts and experiences ranging from the lighthearted topic at hand (bands I like, concerts I've seen) to the more serious such as open-mindedness, judgmentalism, bullying and violence.

Stay metal and keep on being you,
King Emeriftus

P.S. No bickering in the comments over which genre of metal is better than the other! We're all brothers and sisters in arms here! Unless it's Hair Metal. We don't talk about Hair Metal.

What is ASMR?

To me, ASMR is 2 things: a sensation and a medium (like music for example).

The sensation itself (ASMR) stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response and is the current (non-scientific) name given to the feeling characterized as a pleasurable tingling sensation felt in the head, scalp, back and other regions of the body in response to visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, and/or cognitive stimuli, such as crinkling bags, hand movements, whispering and personal attention.

ASMR videos, the medium, are not only meant to help induce the sensation or "tingles", but also help provide a relaxing, calming and soothing experience for the viewer while helping to relieve their anxiety, stress, headaches, insomnia, to help those suffering with PTSD or depression, to serve as a study aid and much more. It is quite therapeutic, for both the creator and recipient, not much different than the mediums of music and painting.

Many people who do not experience ASMR still enjoy the videos for their calming and sleepy affect.
