Artwork Poll: The Mars Volta Vs. Khold

Posted in Polls with tags , , , on 07/06/2022 by korzeck

In what was a refreshing gust of good news for a change, The Mars Volta — entrants on the top 10 list of the Bad Penny’s favorite albums of the 2000s — announced their reunion last month. Shortly thereafter, Norway’s unholy terrors, Khold, dropped one of the best metal records of the year so far.

What do those events have in common, you ask?

Terrifying bald men.

This is not a poll about whether The Mars Volta or Khold is a better band. That would be silly. Instead, this poll targets a far more fascinating question: Which of the two dudes depicted on the bands’ album art would make you pee your pants faster if you encountered him in person — or, even worse, were stuck with him in a confined space … forever?

(By the way, ever notice the terrified kid standing in the doorway in the distance? Haha, this album cover rules.)
