A metallic ending. June 11, 2010 Posted by Mookie
And so ends this storyline, which I have decided to name "B.Y.O.B." Fans of System of a Down will hopefully appreciate the reference to that incredible band. And, in the end, Gregory got to "be his own bard" after all.

Some people wrote e-mails to me asking what band Facebath sounds like or what sort of metal they're supposed to be playing. I'll leave that "officially" up to each individual's tastes and imagination, but I will go so far as to say that I used Pantera's classic metal album "Vulgar Display of Power" as inspiration for Facebath's quest to find their own sound, even their glamorous beginning. For those of you who didn't know this, Pantera actually started out as a glam rock band. I'm not kidding. Look it up. There's something altogether disturbing about seeing Phil Anselmo in full makeup and teased hair.

I hope you folks enjoyed this metallic tale of brutal music and Gregory's new purpose in life. It was a blast for me, and I hope you like what comes next.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on forever.
