"Related Artists" NOT mutual? How does it work?

How do "Related Artists" affect each other?

I've noticed that some artists appear in another's list but not vice versa.

 

The band KoRn has roughly 6 times as many plays (monthly and total) as Static-X,

but they don't even show up under "Related Artists", while Static-X is first on KoRn's list.

 

Does this mean that most KoRn fans listen to Static-X but not the other way around?

 

Suppose I make a playlist where I mix bands that have only a few listeners with bands that have lots of listeners... Who will show up in whose "Related Artists"?
