For generations, one question has dominated the minds of humanity’s greatest thinkers: what’s the formula for the perfect metal band photo? The heroes featured on Awkward Metal Bands seem to have come close to finding an answer.
Overwhelmingly, these shots demonstrate that every serious metal collective ought to have the following organised for a shoot:
- lank and / or luscious manes
- bulging body parts
- facial expressions that convey a kind of rapture/agony/rage/conviction.
Throw in a few axes (of the weapon or guitar variety), and your raging troupe will be well on its way to capturing the essence of life in the musical service of Satan.
