Welcome to THTH, Forte’s premier source of all things heavy, hard, fast and metal.
I don’t go to weddings coz I don’t have any friends and the friends I do have don’t get married and I don’t get married either but recently in my old age I’ve wondered what it would be like to have a heavy metal themed wedding. Then I remembered I don’t have friends and I don’t get married. So then I wondered what it would be like to just have a massive heavy metal party and pretend I had enough friends to come to such an event, but then I realised I could instead pretend I were getting married and had friends and then again I wondered what a metal wedding would be like. So I googled around and all of the heavy metal wedding pics looked lame so I then wondered why the image in my head looked so much better, then I remembered it was all pretend. I guess there’s no real point to this except for the fact that heavy metal themed weddings must be pretty lame to those looking in, but would be totally fun if you were on the inside doing the partying, as long as the playlist was solid and full of all the killer metal tracks, but then that would spark all sorts of discussions amongst guests about which metal band has the better tracks for weddings and right now I’m exhausted thinking about it, so I’ve just decided to stop thinking about it all together and go to bed. Lesson here is: metal weddings are more than likely a very bad idea. Unless you get married in the church of Satan… now there’s something to pretend about.
