Sorry @Khartun, never heard of that band. But I do remember the short 1990's comic mini-series inspired by the painting (with cover art by Frazetta) - written by Misfits frontman Glen Danzig.

They were from the late 70's early 80's. Southern Rock.

All of their album covers were done by people like Frazetta and Boris Vallejo.

Reminds me of Thrud The Barbarian. A fantastic fantasy comic that used to run in White Dwarf - A UK wargaming mag. I looked him up nostalgically and apparently he was openly inspired by Frazetta..

As for a caption...
"Well Dobbin. It's been 600 years, I think it's safe to say we're not going to find the keys anywhere. Hang on... no...noooo.... I don't believe it. I'm sure I checked that bloody pocket first!"

Thrud The Barbarian...I looked him up
Had never heard of the comic, but I checked the wiki page and his tutor was Bryan Talbot! Talbot's "Luther Arkwright" and its followup "Empire" were excellent. Also, his "Tale of One Bad Rat" was an intense work looking at child abuse. These are the only three works of his I used to own and all three are worth checking out, if you don't already know them.

Ground Control: "Major Tom? Do you copy, Major Tom?"
Major Tom: ...
Ground Control: "Respond please, Major Tom."
Major Tom: ...
Ground Control: *Aside, and in a harsh whisper* "Goddammit, did he take his fuckin' protein pills or not?"

The image also brings to mind the metaphor that is Ozymandias.

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
'My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings:
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away".


- Shelley

"Yes, but you're supposed to drink the Tequila first. Now, let's try this again."
