There’s A Metal Emoji Keyboard Now


We knew it was only a matter of time. First, Finland unveiled their headbanger emoji. Then, Zakk Wylde released his emoji keyboard. At this point, we could see the wave coming, we were just waiting for it to crash.

And crash it did. You can now get the Heavy Metal Emoji Keyboard from the guys at Keylumanatti, with 179 metal graphics available for you to choose from. The keyboard costs $1.99. Feel free to order it from the App Store, or just go here.

To be fair, I’m sure there’s a generation of kids out there who would like to respond to their parents’ annoying texts or their friends’ invitations to party with a cute lil’ broken whiskey bottle or the ‘666’ symbol or ‘Bearded Dark-Skinned But Not That Dark-Skinned Devil Horns.’ If I was younger than I am right now, I would probably buy it.

But, I don’t know… emojis seem kind of lame to me. The best way to use them, in my mind, is to make a bunch of harmless emojis into something sinister. Like, if someone’s like, “Dude, let’s go get high!”, you write ‘Hypdermic needle – Money sign – Thumbs Up’ or something.

Anyway, what do I know, I’m old. Download the metal emoji keyboard and tell your friends that you sword beard drumstick them. We’ll let you know when the ultra-kvlt true metal keyboard comes out and decries the old keyboard as a bunch of poser bullshit.
