Black Friday Week Deals for Metalheads
We’ve already shared with you our Heavy Metal Holiday Gift Guide for 2014, but before we get to the Holidays we’ve got to suffer through the annual clusterfuck known as Black Friday. Ugh!
But fear not: you can benefit from the craziness, and we’re here to help. Amazon has taken the liberty of expanding Black Friday to “Black Friday Deals Week” this year, which at first seems like a gross expression of American capitalism. But really, who are we to complain? Good deals on stuff without having to lift our butt-cheeks from their custom-fitted prints in our chairs? Sweet.
Here are a few of the highlights that metalheads should find appealing. Most of these items have only a certain number available at the discounted price, so make sure you act fast if you see something you like.
New deals are becoming available literally by the minute, so make sure to check back here often for more.
