Kerry King vs. Phil Anselmo – President of Heavy Metal Election, Round 1

Kerry King vs. Phil Anselmo

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.'

Down frontman and metal icon Philip Anselmo issued a video update while smack dab in the middle of Hurricane Isaac in Louisiana. Anselmo initially issued the clip a few days ago, but the audio quality was poor and indiscernible. It has since been republished with better audio quality.
