Slayer Christmas Sweater

'Tis the season for awful Christmas sweaters, even in the world of heavy metal. This Slayer sweater goes above and beyond. Hell, forget ugly sweater parties, I'd probably wear it every day of December just to piss people off.

This blood red and eternal black treasure is warmer than the depths of hell, while covered in skull and pentagrams for all your sacrilegious holiday needs. It's just about as festive as any Slayer fans is gonna get. Added bonus? Makes a hell of a slingshot in the mosh pit.

Heavy Metal Activity Book


For the headbanger in training, or just to pass some time on those long holiday plane rides, check out the heavy metal activity book; it's an entirely new take on the coloring book genre. Color in such legends as Metallica, Danzig, and Pantera, help get Spinal Tap through a backstage maze, complete the black metal word scramble and hair metal crossword, and solve heavy metal Sudoku.

Marshall MS-2 Mini Amp

Warning: This gift may make your beloved metalhead never leave home without their instrument. Perfect for musicians who want to take the classic Marshall tone, crunchy distortion and vibe anywhere they go with the Marshall MS-2 Mini Amp. It's powered by one 9V battery, and includes a belt clip and headphone jack.

Heavy Metal Documentaries

Always a classic gift, no matter if you're gifting for a heavy metal expert or novice. Personal favorites include Metal Evolution, an 11-part series that traces the history of metal back its blues roots; Metal: A Headbanger's Journey, which covers the history of the heavy metal genre and looks deep into the sub-genres spawned from its creation; and Lemmy: 49% Motherf**ker, 51% Son Of a Bitch, a look into the life of Lemmy Kilmister from rocking the stage at night to quiet evenings playing poker at home.
