Who was metal enough forGigantour? Australia'slittlest metal fan, that's who

Well the gods, AKA Dave Mustaine have spoken and the winner of our Metal Enough for Gigantour has been revealed and it’s none other than a eight year old fan named ‘Rattlehead’.

For those not in the know, Megadeth enlisted the help of FasterLouder to discover Australia’s biggest metal fans. Entrants from all over Australia submitted their photo to fasterlouder.com.au and Dave Mustaine chose the winner – young Rattlehead who must be the biggest little metal fan in the land.

The prize allows Rattlehead to hang out with the band before the show, get his pic taken with the band and receive a prize pack of merch.

Rattlehead was first introduced to Megadeth by his father and cites his fave Megadeth album as Youthanasia.

The event will mark the first concert he’s ever attended and thanks to the crew at Gigantour his whole family will be along for the ride. The whole family are true metal fans – next year they the entire clan will be scooting off to see Iron Maiden…

When asked how does it feel to be named Australia’s biggest metal fan? he said “I was like woooooooooaah, I didn’ t know where to look and I could hardly speak”.

His message to Megadeth…. “You guys Rock and I can’t wait to see you rock on stage at Gigantour”.
