Celtic Frost

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: Celtic Frost
Genre: Metal

Voting ends on: Monday, March 23th, 9:00am CST (GMT-5)

THE VERDICT (Updated!)

Voting has ended. Here is the tally.

No One - 3 votes
Scary Makeup In The Middle - 2 votes
Amused On The Left - 3 votes

Ulp. Another tie. Once again, please, Mr. VP of the USA...

"Why do you people continue to bother me? Why can you not make up your minds? I don't have time for this. I have to fix the world economy and bring democracy to all the stupid people of the Earth. It's the guy on the left. Sheesh."

Just a sec. What is 'metal' about 'Celtic Frost'? There's a bit of white stuff on the ground in Scotland and we're supposed to think of the Devil? Celtic Frost sounds like an Enya album! What next? 'Irish Dew'? 'Drizzle in Denmark'?

As for who is in charge, I'm going for the guy in the middle who looks like me on Hallowe'en ten years ago when I let three of my female friends do my 'scary makeup' and I learned that too many cooks really do spoil the broth.

This week it was an easy one. Given the decor, look, and general feel of the picture it's obvious that Vlad the Impaler (not pictured since he won't reflect) is in charge.

To The Imaginary Reviewer's point, Celtic Frost might've been the featured scent at Bath & Body Works this month (in honor of St. Patrick's Day). And where are the unnecessary umlauts and other diacritical marks? My word verification for this post, mongen, would've made a better band name.

As to who's in charge. Guy on right is having trouble with a cross. Guy in center looks similarly stressed, either because of another unseen cross, or because of the flashbulb. Rear left finds this all amusing and is wearing a pentagram, giving the impression that he might actually get the whole metal thing. He's in charge and is hereby advised to rename the band "Mongen."

center is in charge but guy in the left is visibly laughing because center guy fell for one of the oldest practical jokes in the world.

p0nk, naked lady in the telescope?

Jared X got it. The center & right guys are out of control, succumbing to their personal crises of vampirism and bad makeup. The only one who has come to terms with those problems, Mr Grinning Left is in charge.

I'm going with the enormous crystally charm on the freak in front. That's in charge.

p0nk said...

Splotchy, yes that's the one.

Center Guy:I don't see her
Left Guy:Use your other eye.

HaHA Good times, i tell you.

Oh yes, more my scene, it's the man on the left, he's in charge, he's spotted the absurdity and ain't hamming for the camera, plus I think I spy bullets in his belt. He is equipped to quel his mates too.

Oh ha ha Word verification: anteming !! I know.
