Melbourne based melodic death metal quintet, Eye of the Enemy, are going bare-lipped in a determined effort to raise both money and awareness for men’s health, in particular testicular cancer, prostate cancer and mental illness, by becoming “mo bros” for The Movember Foundation.
On 1 November the members of Eye of the Enemy will shave off their mos, with some members’ upper-lips not having seen sunlight in over a decade. The band will document their “mogress” (moustache progress) from nude-lipped to macho-moustache throughout the month of November on their Facebook page and will be encouraging their fans to donate to the worthy cause (donate here). They band are also hoping to inspire other bands to sign up for Movember too.
Chris Kane, Eye of the Enemy’s guitarist, founding member and Movember team captain, comments on why the band has chosen to participate in Movember, “Everyone knows someone that’s suffered from some sort of men’s health problem, especially in the predominantly male metal scene. Doing Movember is a small sacrifice on our part that will hopefully raise money and awareness for The Movember Foundation and the important things that they do.”
Eye of the Enemy have a couple of exciting gigs scheduled for the end of November when the moustaches will be at their most glorious, so moustachioed awareness will certainly be raised for the Movember Foundation.
