Best Beard in Metal
Posted by RiffRaff
Over at Metalsucks.net they are running a vote for the best beard of all time in metal. Being a fan of the face pubes this vote is right up my alley and I’m getting a damn good laugh reading all the comments. The contest is split into brackets with 32 combatants. Each voting of 4 seeds lasts 3 days until the next seeds go in for battle. I’ll be rooting for Clutch’s Neil Fallon for the championship. His beard, while not the longest or bushiest, is the best groomed, most fitting for his face and the bands music, and is just downright intimidating. Johan Hegg of Amon Amarth is a very close second for me. Click here to go vote. Have fun! Peace Love and Metal!!!
Here’s how I voted today: ZAKK WYLDE VS. PETER JOSEPH: Zakk gets the vote from me. A big beard is cool, but keeping it groomed is one hell of a challenge. Zakk has also done many cool styles with his beard. Diversity is always appreciated.
JUSTIN FOLEY VS. BILL ROBINSON: Killswitch Engage’s Justin Foley gets my vote. While lacking good grooming you can’t deny the epicness of a beard that rivals Aries, the god of war.
KIRK WINDSTEIN VS. SEAN Z.: Crowbar/Down’s Kirk Windstein wins my vote with his well groomed and conditioned grey face locks. Sean Z.’s beard is also epic, but that happy Santa Clause look won me over.
NEIL FALLON VS. LIAM WILSON: Neil Fallon, no contest. Great quote from Metalsucks, ‘Fallon’s [beard] is so damned dark and intimidating, it moved to Norway and started a black metal band!
Here’s a song about Neils beard (I think ;) )
