I was watching Obituary perform Chopped in Half at 70,000 Tons of Metal on YouTube and couldn't help but notice how awesome their very long hair looked. I definitely think it adds to a band's look.

There are so many bands I'm not familiar with whose members might have even more impressive locks. Just curious, what are some other bands in which the members have very long hair? I know the list would be huge but I'm talking about standouts.

I don't mean this to be a debate about how metal a band might be if they don't have long hair. I just happen to think it's cool.

Thanks...

Barlow had quite the head-of-hair back in the day.

I think it was the bassist of Prostitute Disfigurement who had the longest hair I have ever seen.

cant find a good picture, but Geoff Bub from Jungle Rot is up there. He got up on stage and took off his beanie and these long curly fuckin locks just flow down past his waist. I still might have to say Ross has the most badass hair though

Why should the thread be locked? Long hair is generally part of a lot of metal bands. It's cool to compare.

Ross Dolan's hair isn't the longest or most impressive. When I saw them live, it looked really long, but he's also shorter than I thought. I think he's around 5'7'' or something.

The vocalist from Shadows Fall, as much as I don't like them, looks the most impressive. Ugly as hell, but still impressive to have that crap flailing around like spaghetti and putting up with it.

Woah, no mention of Phlegethon yet? No picture can do it justice, so here's a video. In some videos I've seen it's been much longer, almost down to his knees.

It looks cool and is cool. Just don't catch head lice! I know from personal experience how hard it is to get rid of those fuckers with long length.

The Eyefear dude with the Crystal Gale hair must have extensions. In any case, that is waaaay to long.

I agree about the hair length. If it touches the floor its definitely too long. The longest I'd go is up to my belly button.

I have been whipped in the face by the dreadlocks of both Brian Fair (Shadows Fall) and Mark Osegueda (Death Angel). Standing too close to the stage and being tall can be a painful combination. Absolutely worth it in both cases, I even caught SF at their peak, nearly a decade ago. A decade ago, Mr. Fair tied up his hair with his hair and it was still impressively long. Now he looks like a tentacled video game boss.

Maybe it's just because I'm a gaming geek, but when I saw that pic that Machine_Dead posted, my first thought was of how many of those you would need to shoot away before you can get a good clean shot off at the boss's core.

Maurice Swinkels, leadssinger of Legion of the Damned, has pretty long hair. To his waist, I think. Not nearly as long as some of those posted here, but still a nice length. He doesn't do much headbanging though...

Also I think Chris Barnes has some fairly long dreadlocks. I remember when I saw them a few years back Barnes was practically sweeping the floor with 'em. Then again he is kinda short.

But the dude from Eyefear is the winner.

I think very few people would be capable of growing to the length Danny Cecati from Eyefear has. My hair is just to below my waist and I don't think it will grow much longer.
