We just received the Cowboy buckles! Death Metal’s version of the classic western buckle, the Cowboy depicts the adventures of the rodeo.. on a 40 ft serpent. This is a truly wicked buckle. We created an initial batch of 30, but we expect we will have to reorder these quickly.
Also, we received a new batch of 25 Dungeons buckles! With a slightly different patina (or finish), these guys are just looking better and better. If you missed out on previous releases, here’s your chance to own one of the best editions.

We just got back the Homeschool X Death Metal wax from our model makers.. This is gonna be sick… It’s reminiscent of the Society buckle we put out with Tank Theory a few years back, but with a harder, more angular fill going on.. Stay posted for the drop date!

Check this little number out. It is Death Metal’s equivalent of the classic western buckle.. but in this one, the cowboy rides, not a bucking horse, but a huge writhing serpent. This one is special for us.. not only is it one of the largest and meanest buckles we’ve ever produced, but the casting is some of the cleanest we have ever experienced! The Cowboay buckle will be available over the coming months, so keep your eyes peeled!

Death Metal has teamed up with the snowboard apparel company, Home School, to create a buckle capturing the flavor and logo of outerwear company. The buckle is in the development phase, but we thought we would post some of the progress shots of the computer rendering created by our modeler, Adam. Expect this limited buckle to drop early next year!

We are happy to introduce Death Metal belt buckles! Death Metal is founded by Andrew Silverman and Zach Johnsen, partners who also started the tshirt and apparel company, Tank Theory, in 2001. Interested in starting an accessories line like no other prompted us to seek out the help of fellow Mass Art graduate and sculptor, Adam Grinovich. With Zach creating the designs, Adam sculpting the buckles, and a small family owned casting operation creating the final product, Death Metal has become a company like no other… an accessories line that is not only a function of faction but also stand alone works of art. All Death Metal buckles are made in the United States of 100% cast bronze.
Hope you enjoy!
