Kerry King vs. Phil Anselmo – President of Heavy Metal Election, Round 1
It’s a battle between two cue-balled members of metal royalty! Iconic Slayer guitarist Kerry King would look pretty awesome on the dollar bill, wouldn’t he? Not sure how he’d feel about the whole ‘In God We Trust’ thing though. Reviewing the policies of Kerry King throughout his career, we’re pretty certain that as President of Metal, he would support the separation of church and state. If you’re unsure of said policy, please refer to the Slayer albums ‘Christ Illusion’ and ‘God Hates Us All.’
Pantera / Down vocalist Phil Anselmo would make an equally awesome President of Heavy Metal. The frontman has always been outspoken, and there’s no denying that he’d bring his vulgar displays of power to the Presidential office, which Anselmo likely would rip apart on the first day of his first term as President.
