The Ross Perot of death metal

"Right. Ephemeral and enigmatic and hanging out there. And 'Fraudulent Cloth' and 'Faux King Christ' are very direct statements about very specific topics, whereas the rest of the tunes are sort of quintessential Kelly. He speaks very metaphorically even when we are in regular conversation. I always joke that he is like the Ross Perot of death metal, because Ross Perot (if anyone remembers) was a political candidate ten years ago, and everything was a metaphor. So Kelly would say, 'It’s like you’re driving a car, right? And you are at a stoplight and you don’t want to just go…'."
