So, There May Be Hope For This Site Yet

It's worthwhile...

It would appear that none of you is interested in getting into the heavy metal blogging game, and, well, I can’t say I blame you. I’ve received only a few email inquiries since revealing a little while ago I’d be open to selling this site, which I intend to pull the plug on this coming […]

Broken Hope Release Disturbing Walking Dead Shirt

Who thinks of this?

Somehow, I don’t think this shirt’s going to fly once word gets back to the producers of “The Walking Dead” and their legions of lawyers. But I definitely give a nod to Broken Hope for thinking outside the box when it comes to merch. Broken Hope are taking orders here on a shirt that spoofs […]

Broad Tried Defacing Exhibited Cradle Of Filth Shirt


Reports claim a woman tried to ruin the Cradle of Filth shirt that is being displayed as part of an exhibition in New Zealand. The woman tried to spraypaint the shirt, officials said. The Cradle T-shirt, which shows a nun masturbating with a cross with the words “Jesus Is A Cunt” emblazoned on the back, […]

Cradle Of Filth Shirt Part Of New Zealand Exhibition

Who are these guys who dress like Jesus and go to festivals?

That infamous T-shirt Cradle of Filth is perhaps best known for at this point will be on display as part of an exhibition in New Zealand that starts this Saturday. The Cradle of Filth shirt, featuring a nun on the front masturbating with a crucifix, and the phrase “Jesus Is A Cunt” on the back, […]

Mastodon Issue T-Shirt As Response To Video Criticism

I'd rock that

Mastodon’s new video — which features beautiful women of color twerking their moneymakers — has gotten a lot of people feeling butt hurt, and I’m not sure why. Twerking is a robust, zesty enterprise, and I for one am a fan. That Mastodon video for “The Motherload” was innocent enough. I mean, I didn’t beat […]

KsE’s Jesse Leach Selling Signature T-Shirt

Jesse, doing his thing

Jesse Leach is a righteous dude. Anyone with the amount of success he’s achieved who is willing to write for this blog for nothing is stand-up in my book. Today, Jesse revealed he’s selling a custom T-shirt that looks pretty cool, actually. Jesse designed it himself. What follows is a commercial of sorts for the […]

Fan’s T-Shirt Sets Off Mike Portnoy At Signing

Mike Portnoy

Mike Portnoy’s just a dude that makes bad decisions. This much, we all know. The dude made yet another bad decision over the weekend, by posting some missive online about some kid who showed up to an in-store signing of his wearing a Dramatic Turn of Events shirt. The kid in the shirt likely wore […]

Metallica Poke Fun At Glastonbury Uproar With Video, Merch

A white shirt?

This weekend, Metallica closed out the Glastonbury festival’s second night in epic fashion — making it the first time a metal band has done that in the fest’s history. Of course, Metallica’s booking drew protests from butt-hurt indie rock fans who didn’t want the tang of metal staining the sanctity of their uptight proceedings. Most […]

Bloggers Stir Up Fake Controversy Over Emmure Shirt

So clever

Yesterday, two blogs of some renown and zero humor posted fake news stories about a “controversial” shirt that worthless fucking band Emmure started selling online, but pulled from their merch site hours later. The same shirt was on sale when I was at New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, and I thought was, “Well, that’s […]

Part of the proceeds from the show will benefit the Dave Brockie Foundation. Dave was prolific in many different visual mediums and he collaborated often with MF […]
