...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead

Determine a band's leader by analyzing a publicity photo.

A band's inclusion on this blog reflects neither an endorsement nor a criticism of its music. This post is merely intended as a spotlight on the inner political workings of a collection of individuals who are in the midst of a cooperative, creative endeavor.

The Process:
You, dear reader, please answer the question, "Who's in charge here?"

After sufficient discussion has taken place, a verdict can then be passed based on a majority vote.

Band: ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead
Genre: Indie Metal

The Verdict (UPDATED!)

Voting has ended! Here's the tally:

Steve Coogan Guy(?) - 1 vote

Suit Jacket Guy - 2 votes
(Barbara, Gizmorox)

Evil Oliver Platt - 4 votes
(Beckeye, DGuzman, Jess, Ten S)

Bill Berry (the eyebrows have it) - 1 vote

I wasn't sure who J.D. was referring to, as to me all the band members have a passing resemblance to Mr. Coogan.

In this case it doesn't really matter who looks the most like Steve Coogan, as the preponderance of votes indicates that Evil Oliver Platt is in charge.

Hm, I don't know who to vote for: Steve Coogan guy, or Cool Glasses guy?

Hm... Steve Coogan guy. Sounds good.

Suit jacket guy. The way he's leaning back and observing his kingdom shouts power.

BeckEye said...

The Oliver Platt looking guy up front, trying to give his best "I'm evil" face.

I'm with Barbara on suit jacket guy. The dude up front and the one on the right look like they could be twins. They have matching pseudo-scowls that are really annoying.

dguzman said...

I vote for the guy up front who looks like he wants to spit up some blood.

Great graphics;

I believe that the guy in the front is Corey Feldhaiman. And I think he is the leader of the band with the stupidest name ever.

How do you shorten that? Aywkubttod?

Manx said...

Bill Berry Guy on the far right for me.

When in doubt, go with the most prominent eyebrows.

BeckEye said...

Corey Feldhaiman? That's 80s-tastic!

Tenacious S said...

Evil looking dude at bottom of picture. Isn't the mastermind always evil in these types of bands?

dguzman said...

I think the guy on the far right kinda looks a little like Mr. Bean...
