The ten wildest heads of hair in metal
In metal, stage flair is pulled from every corner and then piled high on stage, or in this case brushed, rolled, picked and gelled to such great heights. Most metal musicians are so busy perfecting their metal madness through instruments, they don't have time to be bothered with such trivial matters, usually seizing simplicity with naked heads or long hair. But some performers find hair a useful tool for the rocking atmosphere above and beyond the same shit different day look. Pull your hair back from your eyes and proceed below to the ten wildest heads of hair in metal.
There is long hair, and then there is REALLY long hair. Alexander Krull's hair is so long it could sweep a fully armed Viking army on its feet in one fell swoop. When grunting and headbanging on stage, Krull's hair even makes Zeus ferocious with envy. It's almost as if the Beatles predicted the future when they wrote the line, "He got hair down to his knees." If Krull's hair caught on fire on stage, it could be seen from outer space.9. Danny Cecati of Eyefear
Danny Cecati's hair is so long, it will probably be the death of him, tripping over it down a flight of stairs and mummifying himself as he tumbles down. But for now, his hair gives him strength of a thousand men. If he shaved his head, he probably wouldn't be able to sing one Dio-packed operatic note. Cecati and his band Eyefear come from a land down under, where the hair grows and then plunders. You better run, you better take cover.8. Josh Silver of Type O Negative
The hair of Josh Silver has its own veins with Type O Negative blood running through it. Silver's hair is more impressive than Howard Stern's, and it even outshines the late great Peter Steele's long locks and all his 6'6" Jack and the Beanstalk squashing giantness. Though never attempted, Silver could probably play the keyboard with his hair like a guitarist playing with teeth.7. Claudio Sanchez of Coheed and Cambria
If you go to a Coheed and Cambria show, you'll find dozens of Claudio look-a-likes rocking the same look. If Claudio was Buzz Osborne's son, he would have made him proud. Actually, it wouldn't be a surprise if Claudio was Buzz's illegitimate son, or Reggie Watts' half brother. Like his music, Sanchez's hair reaches to other worlds and has orbited around moons in multiple galaxies.Next Page
