Metal, Star Wars and other dumbass stuff

Chances are, you’ve already seen these – I’m not exactly lightning fast these days. Here are som shirts that I find kinda good, despite the fact that they’re all dealing with stuff I don’t give a shit about: Star Wars, Metal and Metallica. All of this is stolen from Metalsucks.

First, the Metal Warz shirts. I just can’t resist logo stealing/tweaking/spoofing, as yo may know, so I thought this was a lot of fun. Made by the talented Sean Tidy http://tidyink.com/ it comes as no suprise they look really good. If I never see another Slayer spoof shirt again though, it’ll be too soon. Get these here.

Next up, the ‘Tallica shirt. As I said, I don’t give a damn about Metallica, except for when they did the first Misfits cover song, but I dislike Lars Ulrich as much as the next guy so… I gave some brief thought to explaining the joke on this shirt, but seriously – if you don’t know, you really need to read up on popular culture. Go read the Wikipedia Metallica entry or something. Get this shirt here.

Black Sanctuary

Here’s a company I can’t quite figure out. Some shirts seem genuinely inspired, while others are just zazzle-style pun shirts, inspired by metal and satanism – a very odd mix. So this time I actually bother to read the company blurb and find out that Black Sanctuary is based in Italy (non-english speakers trying to be funny/cool/whatever in English is always tricky) and apparently, they’re “into the occults”. Ok.

This part, though, I like:

Each item is digitally printed, not a cheap peel off print,but a professional directly-on-fabric one.
The vintage,dirty,rotten,shabby or sometimes even pixelated look of each tee is done on purpose.
Each item is carefully handmade and unique,which means that any shirt may slightly vary in color.

Here’s some of Black Sanctuary‘s massive output:

Death to false everything

Ok, so I could have lived withouth them skeleton hands, but apart from that? Cleen, crest-looking print that mocks the “trve” black metal elite – I have to say I rather like it. My hand kinda twitches in the direction of my credit card, but I’m under strict “buy nothing” restrictions at the moment so I guess I’ll have to wait and see until pay day. This is part of Shirts & Destroy‘s Trublack collection. Get it here.

Russian vikings

scaldBeing from Sweden, for me, shirts having anything to do with vikings is kind of a no-no. The only ones buying viking shirts in Sweden are tourists and closet racists (I’m sure there’s a few really nice rednecks too, but you get the picture).

This, however, is a shirt for long since defunct Rusian doom band Scald (a band I know nothing of, I can only hope they weren’t racists). I stumbled upon this design when googling other stuff and I must say I really like the cross between the vikings (and the runes) and the ornamental, middle east-feeling lettering at the top. Since I found this in a forum post for a Russian distro, made in 2008, I’m guessing your chances of buying this are pretty slim.

Gay for Satan

What can I say? Holy crap, despite my shocking levels of straightness, I find myself wanting to wear this. I won’t say any more, because there’s little more to add. Good stuff, get it here.

Eken is dead

Yeah, so, while browsing the blog of Weird, I came across this video and instantly spotted the red shirt pictured above. Since it was a Descendents rip off and since I couldn’t figure out quite what it said, naturally I went into obsessive mode. So now, after some googling, I can tell you that this is a shirt by the band Eken is Dead (don’t ask, I have no idea) and if you feel like it, you can listen to them (and, I assume, buy their shirts) at their facebook page. To be honest, I think the band sucks, but I like the shirt.

No one cares about your stupid fucking dog

stupid_dogFlying Coffin. Just because I don’t post about them all the time, doesn’t mean they stop doing cool things. I’d love to wear this shirt, dog owners do get on my nerves quite a bit. Sure, the design is very very simplistic, but in this case, it’s sufficient. Instagram commenters are already demanding a version that says “your stupid fucking kid”…
