Default Manly types

A client asked me to use a "bold, sans serif, hard-edged, strong, heavy, masculine" typeface on a brochure cover. It will also be used for heads and stuff throughout the brochure.

Right now I'm tinkering with Helvetica Neue Black. If it were any manlier, it would be called Helvetica Neue Black and Blue. Any other suggestions for manly typefaces? The other sans (sanses?) I've looked at just aren't heavy enough.

And what would be a good text font? I'm a little reluctant to use Helvetica for everything. Normally I'd try Utopia, but the client wants to get away from it. Most of the other serif text fonts I've looked at seem too delicate to go with the H.N. Black.
