Hell rides in from the East. And it does so on black t-shirts, as Double Fine Productions, creators of metal epic Brütal Legend, summoning the powers of Brooklyn-based label Mishka NYC to deliver a pair of epically brutal tees.

The Mishka NYC × Brütal Legend collaboration not only gives metalheads an opportunity to proudly display their love of all things Tim Schafer on their torsos, it draws upon real thrash and metal credibility.


The above "Headbanger" tee features the gory result of Ironheade's headbanging foot soldiers thrashing concert-going wimps in a design crafted by artist James Callahan, known for his work with bands like Municipal Waste. The second, featuring a Brütal Legend Zaulia riding a Fire Beast, is all 70s metal fantasy, sex and hellfire, courtesy of Daniel Mumford, known for his work with Black Dahlia Murder.

Keep watch for opportunities—right here on Kotaku, for example—to get your hands on these tees. They won't be for sale, folks, so watch this space and the official Brutal Legend Twitter for updates.


Right now, however, if you've not already invested in a copy of Brutal Legend, Mishka's Bloglin is giving away a quartet of copies, two for the PlayStation 3, two for the Xbox 360. We're not sure if Mishka's inbox is ready for it, but if you e-mail brutal@mishkanyc.com, with either Xbox or PS3 in the subject line, you may score a copy by November 20th. Good luck!
