Let's be honest: a lot of merch doesn't fulfill our real needs. Like feeding our drinking habits, for example. Sure, there's options; custom craft brews are delicious, and don't get me started on the shot glasses. But get ready to stack those Troopers on ice with gusto, boy-o, because this metal forged ice bucket in the shape of Iron Maiden mascot Eddie's head has your name written all over it. It's literally the coolest thing you'll find all year.
Man, forget the Super Bowl this weekend, because this guy's already looking ahead to making a big splash on the beach this summer. The killer cooler, styled in the vein of Iron Maiden's Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son album, is the masterworkings of Burnt By Design, Ltd. They are the same company that crafted last year's Powerslave Eddie Wood Burner and Grill, also shaped in the head of the Maiden mascot.
Get it here for $2,450. The ice buckets ship from the U.K., so act quick and order now, you can have yours probably just in time for Memorial Day—and for that Metallica Weekend tailgate party this summer!
As for Maiden, they'll be hitting the road for their Future Past world tour, which kicks off this June in Finland. You can check out all dates confirmed so far just below.
