Consider these 4 album covers:
Anything strike you as odd? If you answered, "hey, why do all those dudes have antlers?", then you win. Man-antlers (or "mantlers") seem to be leaking, like so much noxious gas, into the universal heavy metal lexicon. Why, you ask? I would have to answer with a qualified "I don't know". Are antlers very metal? Not really:
So why mantlers? Deer are probably nature's wussiest creation. If I asked you to name one famous deer, I would bet dollars-to-donuts that you would answer "Bambi". Bambi is not very brutal, But apparently Suffocation, Hate Eternal, Mastodon,and Skeleton Witch think otherwise. Am I missing something here?
I guess the only place to go from here is a giant biomechanical warrior WITH MANTLERS. I bet that would spin some domes.
