14 pictures of metal’s “Invisible Oranges” pose taken literally

July 4, 2014

The “claw” is a staple in heavy metal—it’s not entirely menacing, but dudes trying to hit that growl have been holding the invisible oranges for decades.

But what if someone took the term literally? What if singers from Kvelertek, Mötörhead and more were holding actual oranges?

New Tumblr Oranges and Metal answers that question. Sure, there’s a disproportionate number of Taake pictures, but they more than make up for those with a surprisingly informative page about the different kinds of oranges. Wonder which Phil Anselmo prefers? [h/t Metal Sucks]
