This New Black Dahlia Murder Shirt is Friggin’ Awesome
The Black Dahlia Murder continue their tradition of releasing totally excellent merch with this new shirt design:
Younger readers, or older readers with a life, may not initially realize that the shirt is a parody of the poster for Detroit Rock City, the 1999 KISS-themed, KISS-produced comedy that met with acclaim from critics and fans alike.
BDM’s shirt, of course, is superior to the original poster, because instead of being populated by characters from a movie people won’t remember six months after its release, it’s populated with a nerdy cornucopia of important figures from metal, horror movies, and video games. Easy-to-spot celebrities, both fictional and non-, include James Hetfield, Dave Mustaine, Eddie the Head, Vic Rattlehead, Not Man, Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Michael Meyers, Candyman, Megaman, Robocop, King Hippo, and two important higher-ups at the band’s label, Metal Blade Records (Brian Slagel, the label’s illustrious founder, and Vince Edwards, in front of Not Man, behind Robocop). Please feel free to point out anyone I missed in the comments section (as if you need permission).
So where can you get this delightful item? It’s not available online as of yet, but it will be sold during BDM’s appearance at Summer Slaughter. We’re giving away tickets to every stop on the tour! Get dates and enter here!!!
