Rob Halford vs. Kerry King – President of Heavy Metal Election, Quarterfinals
In this next matchup, we’ve got arguably the two greatest chrome-domed metal musicians in history. Enter Rob Halford, the ‘Metal God’ and singer for Judas Priest. Halford possesses one of metal’s most celebrated and versatile voices, and at the age of 61, Halford’s voice remains incredible. Surely, he’s a favorite among these heavy metal candidates.
Slayer shredder Kerry King challenges Halford in this quarterfinals matchup. The spastic and maniacal style of King, along with honing some of thrash’s greatest riffs, has made the guitarist an immortal heavy metal legend. When King wrote the Slayer album ‘God Hates Us All,’ he probably wasn’t talking about the Metal God, Rob Halford. Still, it should be a great battle.
