Band Merch: The Neatest Casket Merch Ever


To commemorate its 15th anniversary, Lamb of God has given its fans a vast array of options billed as the Hourglass collections. And for its most ravenous fans, the band conceived quite possibly the most metal thing ever — a personalized casket. Unlike KISS’s casket wherein it can be doubled as a beverage cooler, Lamb of God’s is smaller and actually looks just like a guitar case.

On the list of heavy-metal-friendly merchandise, a coffin ranks pretty high, drummer Chris Adler acknowledged. “It’s up there, that’s for sure. We tried to figure out how to have it smoking. But (research and development) turned that down. We also tried to put wheels and a jet engine on it, but Boeing would not cut us a deal.”

Adler said it was important for the band to release something that was creative; not “a catalog piece that fans could put together themselves using MS Paint and Roxio.” The personalized coffins don’t come cheap — the full package, including the greatest-hits albums, the band’s catalog on vinyl and USB drives, a 144-page book, a flag and a guitar, among other items, retails for $1,000 — but less-expensive options are available.[Yahoo Music News]
