It’s No Shave November, undoubtedly one of the most metal month of the year. It’s this time of year where those in the know showcase their beard growing abilities, and you just know I’m taking part. I’ve had a bit of a head start, having not shaved for half of Rocktober (another one of the metal-est months.)

First off; why are beards metal? It’s obvious! Only men can grow beards. Women who can grow them are either a rarity or are actually men. Don’t forget this, it will be important one day.

The beardos end up making the best metal; just take a look around the sludge and post-metal genre and then take a walk around Norway and Sweden. Beards. Beards everywhere. It’s almost as if those without beards have to try harder to play metal. That’s one of the many reasons why many female fronted metal bands are absolutely terrible. Try and listen to Kittie, an all female “metal” band, and tell me that they aren’t horrendous. And don’t get me started on Black Veil Brides.

Check out what I’ve got going on so far:

My follicles: hard at work. Also, dem webcam artifacts.

No Shave November is a month-long build up to DECEMBEARD, which our seeds of facial hair have grown to a tree of manly at that point. I want everyone who reads Heavy Blog Is Heavy to grow out their visage sweaters for the occasion. Take weekly pictures of your progress and send them to mail(at)heavyblogisheavy(dot)com with the subject “No Shave November,” I’ll post them if they’re good! Hopefully we can get some super awesome before and after shots.

Beardos and Neckbeards unite! It’s your time to shine.
