Electing heavy metal artists into political office may be an ingenious way to get rid of heavy metal.  You can't play your music if you have another job that consumes enough time.

Too bad Tipper Gore & co didn't think of it. In any case, Fenriz has a pretty big back catalog to rest on. Also, in my experience, good metal bands generally make 3-4 good albums then either break up or become terrible.

It does remind one of the Monster Raving Loony Party in Blighty.

I think that's a general rule of thumb for most bands in any subgenre of rock.

I think Lord Sutch had some pre fame famous musicians in his band.  Other than Lord Sutch though, I don't think any sought political office

Just out of curiousity, what is the last great Sabbath album and what is the last listenable Sabbath album to you?

For me it's 4 as the last good album, and Sabotage as the last listenable album.  I consider that a very standard opinion (which means Sabbath had 4 good albums).  That said, I know people with very divergent tastes than me think the stuff after, which I actively despise, is great stuff.
