As a beard wearer I do appreciate a good beard. There’s no beard envy within the bearded community. We’re a bearded band of brothers. Drew and Mark, guitarists with Australian prog rock band Karnivool have good beards. I shot them last November for Total Guitar and Guitarist (and also for Rhythm, but more on that later). Their new album ‘Asymmetry’ has been my soundtrack of choice for gym sessions recently. There’s something about brooding atmospheric epics that’s good to work out to.
