As part of our ongoing project to catalog the 2012 presidential election from a metal point of view, we've been soliciting presidential endorsements from noteworthy American metal musicians. Today: Sutekh Hexen.

Who does Sutekh Hexen's Scott Miller think would be the best leader of the free world? None other than our old friend, Agalloch drummer Aesop Dekker, who himself endorsed the destruction of all systems a few weeks ago, and would probably be a pretty entertaining president if nothing else. Miller's statement in full:

I endorse Aesop Dekker for president.
