He’d discovered the 1,500-strong subculture of metalheads who, despite the insanely hot and humid climate of Botswana still dress like leather clad monsters of rock.

Complete with amazing nicknames like Bone Machine, Apothecary Dethrok, Gunsmoke, Venerated Villain, Dead Demon Rider, Coffinfeeder and Ishmael Phantom Lord, these scene started with a local 70s classic rock band and ev0olved and grew from there.

Along with the Sapeurs of the Congo, Africa’s awesome subcultures have fantastic attention to detail:
