Peter Steele (Type O Negative)
After pulling out a surprisingly difficult victory over convicted felon Tim Lambesis, Peter Steele is still our number one seed and number one heartthrob.
Troy Sanders (Mastodon)
We all love Troy’s sweet nature, but can his Mastodong compete with the Type O Monster?
George Lynch (Dokken, Lynch Mob)
Former bodybuilder George Lynch outflexed the competition in his match against Harm’s Whey bro. Is he sexy enough to top Jeff Loomis?
Jeff Loomis (Nevermore, Arch Enemy)
Jeff pulled off a surprising upset by besting the notoriously handsome Nergal. Now he’s going head-to-head with a similarly renowned shredder. Who is most handsome?
Fabio Lione (Rhapsody of Fire, Angra)
Fabio defeated Dave Mustaine by just five votes, our narrowest margin yet. Can this Italian Stallion move on to the next round?
Doyle upset the original Turbolover in the first round. Can his chiseled, mature frame crush Fabio?
Chuck Schuldiner (Death)
The beloved death metal originator defeated Howard Jones by a healthy margin. Can this sexy Human continue his winning ways?
Tommy Karevik (Kamelot)
The Kamelot vocalist pulled off the upset of this young competition by destroying the extremely sexy Young Sebastian Bach by more than 800(!!!) votes. Can this Swedish firefighter defeat the handsome Chuck?
Greg Puciato (Dillinger Escape Plan)
The sexiest man in Dillinger Escape Plan advanced to the next round because DUH, look at him. Take me in your ample arms, Greg.
All the old heads were livid that Quorthon and Manowar’s Eric Adams were locked into mortal battle so early in the contest. Quorthon proved sexier. Can he keep it up?
Tosin Abasi (Animals As Leaders)
Tosin toppled Carcass-genius Bill Steer. Can his sexiness and otherworldly guitar playing carry him to the finals?
Doug Moore (Pyrhhon)
Doug Moore easily dispatched Kiko Louriero. Can this sexy man out-sexy Tosin Abasi?
Chrileon (Twilight Force)
Chrileon’s Middle Earth-esque sexiness lent him 550 more votes than his competitor in the last round. Can he continue to engorge the shire?
Andy Williams (Every Time I Die)
Every Time I Die’s beefy guitarist destroyed his conventionally handsome band mate and is ready to piledrive the competition.
Vreth took the last round by storm after… uh… I’m sorry, I’m just terribly distracted by how hot he is.
Adam Jarvis (Misery Index, Pig Destroyer)
In another shocking shake-up, Adam Jarvis knocked off Acclaimed Metal Vocalist George Clarke! Can this dreamy drummer continue his winning ways?
Behold! The full bracket.
