Faran has never looked as tall as 177cm to me. He's looked like somewhere between 174-175cm instead. Case in point, here is a picture of him with Colin O' Donaghue from Once Upon a Time, Click Here
. He was consistently shorter than Colin in their scenes as Captain Nemo and Captain Hook, respectively, by about 3-4cm. Now, Colin is listed as 178, but in the show he noticeably wears boots and maybe lifts for a 2-3cm boost to be 180-181cm. So taken this into account, and that Faran might have a slight boost in foot wear too, they are probably 2-3cm apart in real life, making Faran 174-175cm. Overall, 5'8.75" will be my guess for him.

I am thinking 6'1 1/2 would be a better fit for him...a full inch taller than me

Oh crap, I just checked out Iced Earth's website and it says Matt Barlow is returning to Iced Earth!
Chris said on 23/Dec/07
Jon Shaeffer said Matt left Iced Earth because the events of 9/11 made him contemplate what he's doing with his life. Matt wanted to do something in law enforcement, and was no longer interested in the life is a "lowly rock star" or something like that.
glenn said on 14/Oct/07
im kind aware of that,but thanks for the info.i guess i wasnt sure where.i was just wondering why the career change.

He is now a Police Officer in the town I live in. Google Georgetown Police Department.
glenn said on 8/Oct/07
too bad he is retired.for now.i wonder why he quit music?
said on 8/Oct/07
amazing voice. the falsetto during the breakdown on Travel In Stygian, on the Alive in Athens CD is just mind blowing:
at the 05:58 mark. outstanding.
glenn said on 8/Oct/07
6-3 is very possible.
Dave said on 7/Oct/07
agreed glen, at least 6'2... ive met him and hes taller than me! (6'1 flat)
id even say hes 6'3 when he sorts out that posture.
glenn said on 19/Aug/07
matt is at least 6-2.
Chris said on 18/Aug/07
Wow awesome there are Iced Earth fans on here...
I was watching some of my Iced Earth bootlegs and Shaffer and Barlow always appear to be the same height when they are on stage (when they are about 5-10 feet away from each other), but when they get closer to each other Matt seems about an inch taller. Matt does appear to be about 6' 1" in this picture, but he has a slight hunch here...he may be a full 6' 2" if he was standing straight. I think Shaffer is around 6' 1", I've met him. I heard a lot of stories about him being a dick, but he was a super nice guy that night.
Dave said on 17/Aug/07
matt barlow is about 6'2-6'3 actually,.. i have met him on a few occaisions, and i am 6'1 in shoes, the man had over an inch on me.
And in that pic he looks an easy 6'2... i think he really needs to be upgraded rob, to at least 6'2
Thorgrim "steve" said on 13/Jun/07
I think matt is about 6'2 actually, certainly more than 6'1.... when i met him he was a pretty tall guy indeed. And in that pic he certainly looks 6'2, you are standing very straight, and his posture is bad. if he stood straight (like he had to to look up to me, lol) hed be an easy 6'2. One of the few here who needs to be upgraded.
Besides that i think hes one of the best (if not THE best) metal vocalist of all time.... i miss matt, at least he has another band now.
bb said on 29/Apr/07
he is back on a danish progressive metal band named pyramaze. we will hear his voice the following year on a new album of the band. thanks God...
glenn said on 16/Mar/07
i was just about to say,doesnt he have a job now? guess you explained that to me.
iced earth said on 16/Mar/07

bb said on 14/Mar/07
i wish i would be in blair's shoes, you're so lucky man!! may be you can give his e mail adress to me cuz i've got a lot of things to say to him. i'm a big fan of him. i wish he would never left iced earth. iced earth used to be iced earth with him...
Blair said on 6/Mar/07
I see him all the time he and his brother are cops in my town!! He and his family grew up next to mine. Super nice guy!
Glenn said on 23/Jul/06
Schaffer Id say is more 6-1.I think Matt was taller.
trueheight said on 22/Jul/06
cool, '04. lucky man, you caught him in his last moments w/ IE. Schaefer is a pretty tall guy, i'd say 6'2-3
said on 21/Jul/06
thanks for the scoop. After 9/11, the word is that he was growing sick of his 'fantasy rock star life' and joined the Dept. of Homeland Security in NY:
there must have been some problems w. John Schaffer as he has a pretty bad rep. Schaffer's not that generous w/ the fans either, but luckily Ripper Owens usually is
Glenn said on 20/Jul/06
That was summer of 1999 before their concert.I think I got a group photo with minutes later too.isnt he a teacher now or something? havnt seen him since.
trueheight said on 20/Jul/06
Glenn - What was the date of this pic??? seen him lately? still one of the best vocalists of all time
dmeyer said on 19/Jul/06
