WE HAVE A DIFFERENT USE IN MIND FOR THOSE NEW SLAYER MOTORCYCLE HELMETS

So I’m not gonna pretend to know very much about motorcycle culture – call me old fashioned, but I like my motor vehicles to come with mufflers – but O’Neal USA, who a press release tells us are “one of the leading manufacturers of motorcycle and BMX accessories,” are releasing a line of limited edition Slayer helmets (pictured above). The helmets will come in three varieties ranging in price from $159 to $349 and “will be boxed in a custom-made container patterned after the Anvil road cases, which are used to transport band equipment while on tour.”

So here’s the thing: like I said, I have no use whatsoever for a motorcycle helmet, but I do have use for some protective head gear to wear into the pit the next time I go to a Slayer show. Seriously, those things are brutal; even Greg from Dillinger Escape Plan thinks so, and he’s a big scary dude himself. And since the helmet has the band’s art on it, I feel like it will give me some cred amongst my fellow Slayer fans.

Whatever use you have planned for these things, they hit stores February 25. The press release dramatically declares that “once they’re gone, they’re GONE,” so if you’re planning to buy one, you should, like, totally get on that already.
