Former Pentagram Drummer Running For Office In Chile

I'd vote for him

Yes, folks — it is true!

Eduardo “Topo” Topelberg, the former drummer of Chilean death metal act Pentagram, wants your vote.

The dude’s running for political office, wanting to become one of the ten councilors of Ñuñoa, a commune of Chile located in Santiago.

The vote goes down October 28.

As you’ll see in the following campaign spot, Topo is quite the charmer — which means he’ll make a great politician.

Topelberg reportedly left the band after being diagnosed with nerve damage in his right leg.

Let me take this time to announce that Gun Shy Assassin officially endorses Topo for councilor. Clearly, he’s the only choice.
