Dream Theater’s John Petrucci Branding Beard Product Line

Dream Theater‘s John Petrucci not only plays a killer guitar, but he also has one of the best beards in the rock and metal world. Petrucci’s facial follicles drew the attention of Captain Fawcett, who have partnered with the guitarist to brand the new Nebula line of beard products.

There are four products in the line, starting with the Nebula moustache wax. This moustache wax boasts top notes of exhilarating bergamot and aromatic myrtle riff with a bittersweet tang of grapefruit, rising to an intense heart of earthy, violet orris, dark coffee & tenacious woody cedar. A pulse of seductive musk trails a smoky backbeat laced with vetiver & luxurious leather. It comes supplied in an aluminum tin with a screw top lid. It’s available here.

There’s also a Nebula beard balm. According to the description, it boasts top notes of exhilarating bergamot & aromatic myrtle riff with a bittersweet tang of grapefruit, rising to an intense heart of earthy, violet orris, dark coffee and tenacious woody cedar. A pulse of seductive musk trails a smoky backbeat laced with vetiver and luxurious leather. Pick that up here.

The Petrucci Nebula series also comes with beard oil.  It features top notes of exhilarating bergamot and aromatic myrtle riff with a bittersweet tang of grapefruit, rising to an intense heart of earthy, violet orris, dark coffee and tenacious woody cedar. A pulse of seductive musk trails a smoky backbeat laced with vetiver and luxurious leather. It’s available in both 10ml. and 50 ml. packages. Get those here and here.

The first 1000 purchases of this 50 ml. Nebula Beard Oil will include a Limited Edition Nebula Guitar FLOW® Guitar Pick, designed and created by John Petrucci in collaboration with Jim Dunlop.

The 66 Best Metal Songs of the 21st Century

Since 2000, metal has shape-shifted drastically. From primal nu-metal and core anthems, to the zenith of tech-death and prog, to a revival of classic thrash and occult doom, and post-genre amalgamations filled with contrary dynamics, metal remains the most innovative and fascinating subculture on the planet.

Metal ain’t dead, folks. It’s just evolved at speeds never seen before in popular culture.

Looking deep into the 21st century, we’ve pulled metal’s most important and influential gems from Y2K to present day. While enough time has passed for tracks like Tool‘s “Lateralus,” System of a Down‘s “Chop Suey!” and Opeth‘s “Blackwater Park” to reach iconic status, we’ve also given love to more recent cuts which forced metal to expand its horizons. You’ll find tracks by genre benders such as Scarlxrd, Zeal & Ardor and Babymetal, who sprouted new branches on metal’s family tree to mass acclaim, setting themselves up for possible legendary status in the near future.

The 21st century has been a diverse and experimental one, so delve deep by checking out our picks for The 66 Best Metal Songs of the 21st Century in the gallery below.
