Black Sabbath fans now have another option, courtesy of DC Shoes. Skate brand’s latest Black Sabbath capsule collection celebrates 50e anniversary of the British rock group’s release in 1971, Master of reality (which points to n Â° 300 the Rolling stoneof the 500 best albums of all time.)
The DC x Black Sabbath line is inspired by the font and color of the iconic record cover – black, gray and royal purple – as well as the various logos of the metal pioneers. This includes the winged devil holding a six-pointed star in his hand and the group’s name forming a cross. The collection includes 23 different items, including tie-dye tees, black slip-ons, hats, hoodies and even a long-sleeved collar shirt.
There are products in a variety of sizes, ranging from $ 12 for youth t-shirts to $ 75 for trainer shoes or a jacket.
The shoes come in eight styles, many of which are based on the brand’s iconic designs including Manual skate sneakers, high tops, slip-ons, as well as Graffik, Striker, Villain, Net and Pure shoes. They come in men’s sizes, but four of these pairs are considered unisex.
To further celebrate the partnership and anniversary, DC produced a limited edition tribute album, Shadow of reality, that covers Master of reality track for track.
Artist lineup includes Harshmellow with special guests J Mascis from Dinosaur Jr., Jeff Ament from Pearl Jam and Mario Rubalcaba, Surfbort, Lou Barlow (Sebadoh, Folk Implosion), The Spits, King Khan and The Melvins.
DC also recruited runners from the team to help with the project. Long-time Sabbath fan and skateboard legend Danny way covered “Embryo”, while the UVWAYS group, with professional skateboarder DC Evan smith, took “Children of the grave”.
SORThe art of ‘s was custom designed by an artist / muralist / skate deck designer BB Bastide. Only 1,000 copies of the vinyl-only tribute have been made and it will not be sold. It will be used for promotional purposes only, so collectors will want to keep their eyes peeled for exclusive giveaways on the DC website, as well as the social media accounts and websites of the artists and skateboarders involved. And if you don’t already have it, Master of reality is available on CD and vinyl online.
The Collaboration is available for Super Fans to buy at DCShoes.com and at DC retailers around the world.
