“Knucklebonz 3D Vinyl nailed our classic Earth AD cover in such incredible gory detail it might even surpass the original art! Limited run of 1983 to immortalize the year the Misfits set the bar faster, harder and higher, changing the face of hardcore and metal forever. Death came ripping, and it hasn’t been the same ever since. Now you can hold that moment in time in your hands with this ferociously accurate rendering of the Misfits Earth A.D. illustration by the late Mad Marc Rude.” — Jerry Only

Dimebag is quite possibly the finest combination of precision and power the 6-string has ever seen. His chops defined the “power groove” that drove Pantera to the top of the metal music world in the 90s. Dime’s leads were beyond shred. His rhythm work infections.
Those who knew Dimebag Darrell Abbott were struck by his genuine love of life and music., nobody lived it louder!!!
This blog picture from 2005 is from our original Dimebag Darrell Rock Iconz® Statue design. This sells for crazy $ on the secondary markets when you can find it mint in box.
Shred in peace brother…
Pantera fans will be glad to know that we have been hard at work on a new Rock Iconz® Ltd. Edition statue set for Pantera. We will be rolling that out this fall…StayTuned.
Here’s’ a link to see some of KnuckleBonz Rock Iconz®, 3D Vinyl® and On Tour™ Collectibles officially licensed with Pantera.
Earth A.D. / Wolf’s Blood from The Misfits saw the band really show their fangs with a faster and more aggressive full-length recording than the previous full-length album, Walk Among Us. In 1983, Earth A.D. fired off (9) blistering tracks at a total running time of just under 15 min. This was a seminal moment in music, where punk is fueled by a thrashier style of playing, laying down the blueprint for the hardcore metal scene that would follow. Previous classic sing-along tracks like “Skulls” were transposed against songs like “Green Hell” that delivered vicious chugging from deep below the surface of Earth A.D. The sheer audio assault of this album is timeless, along with the underground comic illustration by the late Mad Marc Rude that graces the cover. Sadly, this was the last full length record release from what is considered to be the classic Misfits lineup of Jerry Only, Glenn Danzig and Doyle von Frankenstein.

Low inventory alert on one of originals Rock Iconz design with Motorhead, that being the Warpig Rock Iconz Ltd. Edition Statue. Only a few remain before they are gone forever…
On this design the beloved Motorhead macot hovers a pile of carnage and debris from WWII, a favorite theme of Lemmy. “Snaggletooth” your today. Order Here.
The Motörhead Warpig first appeared on the 1977 self-titled debut album, “Motörhead.” Also, affectionately known as “snaggletooth,” it has become one of the most iconic and loved symbols in music. Motörhead, with Lemmy at the helm, was a band that fused many musical styles and transcended a single category. Fans from diverse music scenes like punk, thrash metal, heavy metal and progressive rock would usually clash, but the one band all could agree on would be Motörhead. The aggression, the speed, the genuine focus of the band made them stand apart, as if having a genre to themselves. With the loss of Lemmy in 2015, Warpig now stands alone as a reminder of what rock music can mean and does mean to all of us….
July 13th 1985 the first ever global simulcast takes place with a live performer live-up like the world has never seen. Literllay ever major performer from that era has a Live Aid story of their performance, or why they were not on the bill. The “Bohemian Rhpasody” film chronicales the QUEEN drama with Freddie Mercury returning for that legendary set. Wimbley Staduim packed in 72,00 fans and was followed by the JFK Stadium Philadelphia USA perfromances with just under 90K in attendance. This is the height of the “MTV Era” so poster boys and girls for that time like Sade, Simple Minds, Howard Jones and Adam Ant had sets at the Wimbley show. The big boys were there of course Black Sabbath performed with Ozzy Osbourne, U2, The Who and David Bowie all performed. Mick Jagger and Bowie were to perform a muti-continent live duet, but technical issues quashed that and we had to be satisfied with lip synch. Many don’t remember that Live Aid was a true global event with bands like Loudness performing from Japan…loved that guitar tone Akira! Perfromances also came from Germany and Yugoslavoia. Bob Dylan, Ronnie Wood and Keith Richards closed the JFK evening.
If you have been following along this spring you will have noticed KnuckleBonz® has added the ability to buy your favorite Vinyl LPs at https://knucklebonz.com/product-category/vinyl-records/. It’s a select offering to start, focusing on the artists we have created for our Rock Iconz®, 3D Vinyl® and ON Tour™ Collector Series over the past 18 years.
To celebrate this new category at KnuckleBonz.com , will soon be offering special bundles for bands that have been released in our 3D Vinyl Limited Edition Statue Series. The bundles will include the actual Vinyl LP that was the inspiration for our 3D Vinyl statue design. Up first will be KISS Destroyer and Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here…
KISS Destroyer Resurrectedwas released in 1976, and many KISS fans believe this is the high water mark for the band’s studio recordings. This classic KISS album is revisited and resurrected on 180g virgin vinyl by original producer extraordinaire Bob Ezrin. The album also features the amazing painting by the master Ken Kelly of Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss in the amzing stage costumes from this era. “staytuned here and via our email list for details…check out KISS Destroyer 3D Vinyl Here: KISS Destroyer 3D Vinyl Limited Edition Statue
Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here 3D Vinyl will also be offered as a special bundle with this 1975 release. The 3D Vinyl design pulls from the inner sleeve design by Storm Thorgerson of the robotic hand shake. At this point, Pink Floyd is in the vacuum created by the once in a lifetime release of Dark Side of the Moon and all of the success and fame that followed. Wish You Were Here’s title track as well as “Shine on You Crazy Diamond“ is a tribute to founding member Syd Barrett which by this time is firmly in the grips of mental illness. It also touched on the alienation and disillusionment with the music business experienced by David Gilmour and Rogers Waters via “Have a Cigar” and “Welcome to the Machine.” Check out Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here 3D Vinyl Here: Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here 3d Vinyl Limited Edition Statue

If you have been paying attention, you might have caught glimpses of this since we announced our QUEEN Rock Iconz® Limited Edition Statues for Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon some weeks ago. The beloved metal behemoth that graces the cover of QUEEN’s News of the World album sparked by Rogers’s love of Sci-Fi and the cover of Astounding Science Fiction’s story by Tom Godwin, “A Gulf Between” is coming to our 3D Vinyl Series® this Fall.
We decided that this particular design would be better served by a full statute figure, rather than the 12X12 format we have used for other 3D Vinyl Limited Edition Statues like Ozzy Osbourne’s Diary of a Madman or Pantera’s Vulgar Display of Power. Excited to share that the statue is well into production for a very limited run in 2021. #staytuned here and via our email list for launch specifics.
This week in 1994, Pantera’s “Far Beyond Driven” shocked the music world by debuting at #1 on the Billboard Charts. This was no real surprise to metal music fandom, but it did jolt the popular music world. It was the 1st time a metal record had debuted in the charts at top slot. Even more amazing, is that Phillip Anselmo, Dimebag Darrell, Vinnie Paul and Rex Brown had not taken step back on the aggression meter to achieve mass market success. Quite the opposite. The band had ratcheted things up a notch from of “Vulgar Display of Power” to deliver something even more brutal.
We have honored this Pantera heavy metal masterpiece in our 3D Vinyl® Limited Edition Collector Series. 3D Vinyl brings the great album art to life in limited edition statues. Each piece is hand cast and detailed and ships with a hand numbered certificate of authenticity. All KnuckleBonz® work is officially licensed. Limited to only 1994, the statue is a desktop mount design. Dimension at 7″ Wide X 8.5″ Deep X 8″ Tall.
Production is complete and these statues have arrived at the US ports and are gong thru customs now. Hope to be ship later in April.
On this day in 1994 Pantera showed the music world that metal was not just a “sub-genre”, but was #1 in music. Pantera’s “Far Beyond Driven” became the 1st true heavy metal record to debut in the US. What’s super impressive is that Phillip Anselmo, Dimebag Darrell, Vinnie Paul Abbott and Rex Brown took no steps backwards to achieve this commercial success. They actually turned up the heaviness…I’m Broken!!!
This album art proved a real challenge for our 3D Vinyl Limited Edition Statue Series. We decided to stray for the tradition 12×12 album oriented format and created a hybrid that brings the great cover photographic treatment to a desk or shelf mount display. This KnuckleBonz collectible is still in pre-order and super hot. Check it out here to be one of only 1994 fans that will own this piece of metal music art: https://knucklebonz.com/product-category/pantera/
The 1st wave for Pantera Far Beyond Driven is finished and in route to our US warehouse. We expect it to hit the US ports in April and then must clear customs to begin the short truck ride to the KnuckleBonz warehouse. Stay tuned here for update…DOn;t Miss Out!
Rock Hard! Kbonz

Heard a recent interview with KISS Paul Stanley on Sirius/XM Radio and he was talking about the pressure on KISS to follow up on the massive success of KISS “Alive.” Another live record was not on the table. KISS Alive was basically a “best of” record with no new material. KISS Alive featured tracks from the first 3 studio albums, KISS “Debut” , KISS “Dressed to Kill” and KISS “Hotter Than Hell.” None had these had achieved any radio foothold. KISS had built their loyal following strictly thru 1975 on their amazing live performances. Speaking with Sirius/XM, Paul Stanley talked about the need for follow up success in the studio. Without it, it was easy to imagine Alive being the high water mark for the band. An unsuccessful follow up, could have damaged the bands rep beyond repair. It was at the suggestion of KISS manger Bill Aucoin, that they bring in Bob Ezrin to produce the new album which we now know as KISS “Destroyer.” Aucoin was not simply goin on a hunch. Bob Ezrin can be closely tied to the success of the original Alice Cooper band and albums like “Billion Dollar Banaies and “Schools Out.” Also throw in the Aerosmith’s classic “Get Your Wings”. All done prior to 1976. Ezrin pushed the Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss to new studio heights. 45 years later, we celebrate was is arguably the best studio effort from KISS…drop the needle on this rock classic today…
