Beard Of The Week 001: Laurent Barnard of Gallows

February 7th, 2010

There are some things that have, are, and always will intrinsically embody the sheer bloody-minded awesomeness of heavy music. One of the most potent of these icons is that mighty manifestation of facial hair: the beard. If you think this is up for debate, then you are wrong.

And here at Thrash Hits, we plan on celebrating this fact every week by recognising an individual who has gone above and beyond standard beard requirements to further the cause of the Beard. So who’s our first winner?

When it comes to hot British bands upon whose shoulders apparently lies the weight of the world, they don’t come much hotter than Gallows. Lauded and damned in equal measure, Grey Britain is the most important record of their career.

A million words have been written, spoken, spat and shat about the Watford punk rockers signing to a major label plus other non-punk-associated endorsements as well as the relative disappointment of their debut, Orchestra Of Wolves compared to their live show.
