The All-Metal Merch Table: May 2017


Illustration by Paul Grelet

Every month, The Merch Table brings you the best and most bonkers merchandise you can find on Bandcamp. We commend bands and labels that get a little creative and think outside the tote bag. Whether it’s a fashion accessory, a piece of art, or something entirely unique, The Merch Table showcases inventive, original—and, occasionally, downright strange—stuff that you might want to get your hands on. But, sorry: the ukulele is sold out.

You can’t spell merch table without m-e-t-a-l, and we thought it was high time to dedicate an entire month of merch findings to the genre. Gothic fonts, images of death, destruction, and gore, and monochromatic color schemes are just a few of the elements that make up the very distinct metal aesthetic. And hey, it’s even made it to the mainstream thanks to the talents of Mark Riddick. Here are the darkest merch items on Bandcamp.

Vektor Nasa T-Shirt


Metal AND space? Yes, please.



This intricate metal work is hand done with expert care, the same care that goes into the band’s punishing sound. Leviathan also have intense long sleeves with artwork by Tim Lehi.

PRIMAL RITE Sweatpants


Why leave the house when you can listen to metal all day in these brutally comfy sweats?

Wormrot Snapback


Wormrot have pacified a sinister political slogan into something worth supporting!

Napalm Death Long Sleeve


We could have made this list entirely out of “longsleeves” but decided to go with a straight up classic. A Napalm Death top emblazoned with pure metal graphics, there’s not much more to say than that.

Death T-Shirt


Pay homage to Chuck Schuldiner’s memory by celebrating the legacy of Death with this fine cotton garment.

Funeral Horse Patch


“Listen to Metal, Stay High, Drink Beer.” Wise words for the wicked.
