In case you might live under a rock, today is April 20th, which is the international smoke marijuana day. Many labels, artists, and even media sites in the industry will celebrate this joyous holiday in different ways. Some labels might release THC themed content (like Nuclear Blast releasing a music video for the remix of Surgical Meth Machine’s “I’m Invisible”), other media sites might even dedicate the entire week to the plant (like Noisey’s weed week), and many artists will sell grinders and merchandise covered in designs with their logos and pot leaves. However, nothing is as amazing as what the Black Dahlia Murder recently did for the stoner holiday. Through Indiemerch, the band themselves sold 7 different colored pipes made by Chameleon Glass. The pipes each featured the bands iconic logo on the stem and were unique to each of the 7 full length studio albums that TBDM has released in their impressive history as a metal band. Each pipe was marked with a logo at the end of the bowl that represented the respective album and the entire pipe itself was colored to match the same respective album’s visual appearance, based off the album artwork. A list of what pipe represents what album is listed below along with a picture of all 7 pipes on display. Fans could also buy a travel bag covered in TBDM’s logo that could fit one pipe safely.
Unfortunately, these pipes, which were limited to 100 pieces per color, sold out practically instantly and cannot be purchased anywhere else. The pipes, which sold for a reasonable $30 each, appear to have only been made for sale on April 20th, and the possibility of more being made in the future is unclear. Who knows, maybe it will become a yearly tradition for The Black Dahlia Murder and other bands to sell well thought out and produced pipes at the tail end of April. If you picked up a piece for yourself, let us know what you think of the product and if it was worth it or just a scheme for the marijuana holiday itself!
