GHOST Infestissumam KnuckleBonz Limited Edition Statue Drops next week exclusively at

GHOST Infestissumam KnuckleBonz® Limited Edition Statue Drops next week exclusively at

At long last, we are ready to officially announce this limited edition statue for the KnuckleBonz 3D Vinyl® Series.  Pre-Orders will begin next week for this Super-Rare and limited production. Only 333 will be cast.

This hand-cast and detailed KnuckleBonz collectible statue is 12×12 inches (height and width) and can be either wall mounted or desktop mounted. The statue ships with hardware for both types of display.

Infestissumam ( Latin superlative for “Most Hostile” ) was the 2nd studio release and a  breakthrough success for GHOST and the yet to be named Tobias Forge. The record combined satanic themes with combination of heavy progressiveness, laced with some psychedelia. The material were delivered live by the newly coronated Papa Emeritus the II. Many GHOST Superfans still point to Papa II as their favorite in the bloodline.  The album tracks Specular Haze and Year Zero received much critical acclaim, but Ad Espersa Ad Infri is the fav here at the KnuckleBonz studios. “Drop the Needle” on this today !

The cover album art is a perfect subject for the 12×12 format of the KnuckleBonz 3D Vinyl Series. Artist Zbigniew Bielak delivers an amazing illustration with wonderful perspective that allows the 3D design to jump out of the 12×12 album plane.

The KnuckleBonz 3D Vinyl Series was created for music SuperFans that for whatever reason are not into the  figure designs of the Rock Iconz Series…it’s amazing what being told “NO” will inspire you to create…

Do check out the live productions for GHOST collectibles from KnuckleBonz here.

All KnuckleBonz Collectibles are officially licensed and limited edition. Once there are gone, the are gone forever, never to return. We have never released any design in 20 years…

Rock Hard!

DOOM in the Bay City – An Evening w/ Candlemass

While working at KnuckleBonz is a job, with all the things that go along with that…we can say the absolute best part of working here is getting to go out at see live music from one of the bands we are currently working with. Such was the case last evening when we were treated to an Epicus Doomicus Metallicus evening with Candlemass. The show was amazing and the guys were in fine form as they wrap up of this leg of their SOLD OUT US tour. The setlist was power packed. Bewitched, absolutely set the crowd off and they never stopped. We actually got to spend some time with the band Leif Edling, Mats “Mappe” Bjorkman, Johan Lanquist and Lars Johansson before and after the show, which is a rare occasion. We of course talked about all things Doom and Candlemass, but were able to talk about all the great bands and artists  we love and admire across the board, so cool. Just being a fan of heavy music and sharing that fandom is such great medicine.

Thanks Candlemass, see you at Mappe’s restaurant,  De Lyckliga D’rarna (The Happy Lunatics), in Sweden this summer.

Check out of Candlemass Limited Edition Statue from the genre defining album Epicus Doomicus Metallicus. NOW SHIPPING Worldwide….

Get out there and see your bands as the Spring and Summer touring heats up…

The Clash Live at Shea Stadium 1982 – Something Good Came Out of Moving…

Anyone that has moved recently will tell you what a complete pain in the ass it is, at any scale. However, a move of singer/guitarist of the Clash Joe Strummer yielded “live music treasure” when he stumbled on the Live Recordings of The Clash from Shae Stadium in  October of 1982. Engineered by Glyn John, this recording captured The Clash at the height of their punk rock powers as they opened for The WHO on successive nights in the Big Apple.

There’s a really cool video shot as the band takes the stage and cuts to there closing number Should I Stay or Should I Go with Mick Jones on the mic. Just so cool…check The Clash Live at Shae Stadium it out here.

The live record was released in 2008 in both the UK and USA. Check it out here

Superfans sound off…Would you Like to see Knucklebonz work on collectibles with The Clash in 2023?

KnuckleBonz 3D Vinyl Collector Series Celebrates Pantera Vulgar Display of Power Anniversary.

KnuckleBonz® 3D Vinyl® Series Collector Series Celebrates Pantera Vulgar Display of Power Anniversary.

31 years ago today we were at Tower Records outside Washington. It was a freezing ass release Tuesday and we awaiting the drop of Pantera’s Vulgar Display of Power. The buzz was all over the place as to how Phillip Anselmo, Dimebag, Vinnie and Rex would follow up the amazing Cowboys from Hell record. Some fans saw a move back to the earlier Pantera that was more hard rock influenced rather than going even heavier than CFH. All a Pantera fan needed to do was drop the needle and they were immediately pulverized by the Mouth of War opening track, only to go right into the shrill of Dimebag’s axe to kick off A New Level, and there was no doubt…we had an instant heavy metal classic. Still get chills…

KnuckleBonz has sculpted Pantera’s  Vulgar Display of Power for our 3D Vinyl Collector Series.  We think it’s one of the best examples of what this series can be crossing over from 2D to 3D. Checkout this hand cast limited edition HERE…NOW SHIPPING.

53 Years Ago, Black Sabbath Changed Us Forever with Their Debut Album

53 years hence, the direction of rock music made a seismic shift with the release of Black Sabbath’s self titled debut album. While their was plenty of heavy music in place at that time, I think we can all agree, this was the big bang for metal.

This 1970 record was so gloomy and doomy, like nothing any of us had ever heard. With Iommi’s amazing riffs, Geezer’s lyrics and thundering bass lines, Bill Wards powerful swing influenced drumming and Ozzy Osbourne immediately spawned as the “Price of Darkness,” it’s still the most seminal moment we can remember in our music Superfandom here at KnuckleBonz. We still get chills when we hear Ozzy’s evil laugh and screams during the title track Black Sabbath. Drop the needle of this today and be taken back to 1970. There was no “flower power, peace and love” in sight for the boys from Birmingham England.

KnuckleBonz® has been hard at work in our 3D Vinyl® Series and very soon we will drop (2) Black Sabbath Ltd. Edition Statues design for our 3DV Series. Stay tuned here for details Coming Soon!

Do check out our KnuckleBonz Black Sabbath Ltd. Edition Statue set here for Pre-Order. Production is going well and will wrap up soon. Don’t Miss Out !

The Making of AC/DC Powerage 3D Vinyl – KnuckleBonz Collectibles

The Making of AC/DC Powerage 3D Vinyl® – KnuckleBonz® Collectibles

AC/DC Powerage is one of the album covers that presents some special challenges to bring it to life in 3D. The cover art works off a photo of AC/DC co-founder and wielder of the “guitar-bite,” Angus Young. There are numerous photo effects on this album cover that are truly “photo” effects. There was no digital editing at any scale in 1978 when Powerage was released so all these effects we done with traditional photo techniques. The effects give the cover a orange glow/posterized feel, and it’s shot from a long angle which distorts the facial features to a degree. Angus is also making one of his classic scream faces which also moves further away from his actual likeness to complicate things further.

The KnuckleBonz AC/DC POWERAGE original design was in our 12×12 inch flat plane format with the figure protruding in relief out of the front.  We set out to keep as much of the details from the original photo cover image as possible, and after about (2) weeks working in the 12×12  format, we felt like we had something that captured the 2D cover art. However, while it did accurately portray what we were seeing in the 2D album cover art, our sculpt was not really working as a piece of 3D sculpture. When you moved away from the very front view of the 12×12 design, it just wasn’t translating, and just felt “off” for lack of a better way of describing it. We shared the design with AC/DC band management and they agreed. Rather than trying to revise that 12×12 design, we decided to start again with Angus Young in a full 3D design on an oval shaped statue base. The electric cables coming out of his coat sleeves flow into a glowing mass inset in the base. This sculpt still worked toward the feel of the original album art, but was a much better representation of Angus Young on the whole…we knew immediately this was the right call.

So, over (2) years after we started the first design, we now offer you for viewing pleasure, AC/DC POWERAGE 3D Vinyl Limited Edition Statue. This hand cast collectible statue design is limited to  only 1978 worldwide.

Don’t Miss Out Pre-Order AC/DC POWERAGE 3D Vinyl Ltd. Edition Statue Exclusively from KnuckleBonz HERE

Check Out all the cool KnuckleBonz AC/DC Collectibles like the Hell’s Bell and the AC/DC For Those About to Rock Cannon HERE.

KnuckleBonz 3D Vinyl as a category was conceived for those music Superfans,  that for what ever reason, just may not be into traditional  “live moment” figure based statues that has been our trademark for 20 years. 3D Vinyl is inspired by the great album art we all hold so dear from the past 50 years. The same level and design, artistry and craftmanship goes into the 3D Vinyl Series as the original Rock Iconz limited edition statues and everything that KnuckleBonz creates. The production processes are the exact same…sculpting, hand-made molds and painted details with the certificate of authenticity screen printed on the back.

Iron Maiden “Killers” Album – 42 Years Since Paul Di’Anno

42 years ago today in the UK, Iron Maiden released KILLERS, there studio 2nd  album. This was the last recording with Paul Di’Anno and the first with guitarist Adrianne Smith. All Maiden albums are instant classics but this hold a special place for us here at KnuckleBonz for a couple of reasons. The first being, it has one of our all time Iron Maiden tracks WRATHCHILD ! The 2nd and most enduring reason, is the cover art by Derek Riggs sees Eddie take on the form that we know him today. The original cover for the debut album was created by the very same Derek Riggs before Maiden had come onto the scene, so it was only natural that he would reimagine him for KILLERS. There’s a cool art book out for all the Iron Maiden cover art called Run for Cover: The Art of Derek Riggs, do check that out.

KnuckleBonz® has created (2) Ltd. Edition Statues for our 3D Vinyl® for Iron Maiden Number of the Beast and Piece of Mind. Number of the Beast is shipping now. Piece of Mind just wrapped production and is on the way to our US warehouse to ship to pre-order Iron Maiden Superfans. Next up for us in our officially licensed work with Iron Maiden will be our take on KILLERS for a 3D statue design. Sculpting start next month for  Fall 2023 release. Stay Tuned here for updates.
