Christmas has come and gone and courtesy of being 'hard to buy for' you've likely been left with a few trash gifts and a stack of cash. We can't do anything about the former, other than to advise you to try to sell them for some of the latter, but if the surplus Christmas dosh is burning a hole in your favourite mosh shorts, we've got more than a few ideas on what you might wish to spend it on. So gather up that festive cash and splash it on some metal must-haves with Maniacs and show the world what you really wanted for Christmas.
Splash Some Of That Excess Christmas Cash On These Metal 'Must-Haves'
Iron Maiden - Senjutsu boxset
Iron Maiden's 17th studio album Senjutsu, is their first in 6 years, and was recorded in Paris with longstanding producer Kevin Shirley and co-produced by Steve Harris. The band once again enlisted the services of Mark Wilkinson to create the spectacular Samurai themed cover artwork, based on an idea by Steve Harris. This is bought to a whole new level with the Super Deluxe Boxset featuring CD, Blu Ray and Exclusive Memorabilia art cards/ poster/ lenticular poster/ origami sheet plus 28-page booklet.
Deftones classic White Pony gets the 20th Anniversary treatment in this 4LP set featuring the original classic White Pony album and hugely anticipated Black Stallion remix album : turns out the rumours were true and if you love Deftones you need to get on this before it’s gone!
Mastodon - Hushed and Grim – clear vinyl
Exclusive to the Maniacs store, this clear 2LP vinyl is a MUST for fans of the multi-faceted Atlantians. It’s limited and looks suitably cool on your turntable – a total no-brainer for the collection!
Take your love of all things Trivium to the next level with this 2LP and T-shirt bundle featuring a choice of the standard black 2LP of their epic 10th studio album In The Court Of The Dragon OR exclusive yellow transparent 2LP vinyl Limited to only 4,000 copies worldwide.
Available in red (pictured) and blue options, this 2LP + t-shirt bundle will make for a solid addition to your audio loot and will absolutely be sought after for years to come. If Slipknot haven’t proved their legendary status in the annals of metal history by now what more proof do you need!
Gojira - Logo socks
If socks really are your thing, why not take it up a notch with these Gojira logo socks? There’s also plenty of other great Gojira merch available on the store too – even some alternate sock designs (sadly no jocks though!)
Halestorm - Vicious - PJ pants
OK, summer may not be the perfect time for long pants but future proof your indoor leisurewear options with these super comfy PJ bottoms form the Halestorm merch collection – you deserve it!
Code Orange - Underneath – vinyl and t-shirt bundle
Technically this bundle gives you a choice of CD/download OR vinyl alongside the official Underneath album graphic T but our pick of the bunch is definitely The Shell' Vinyl: Lenticular cover, gatefold vinyl with 24" x 24" poster, glow in the dark blue with black and dark blue spatter LP vinyl (Limited to 1000 worldwide).
MCR are celebrating 20 years of the watershed classic album The Black Parade right now and with that comes a whole bunch of future classic merch including this classy The Black Parade marching Band Satin Jacket. One of the premium items from the current range and they won’t last long.
Not metal, nor on Maniacs, but definitely worth checking out over in the Warner Music Australia store, because it is dope as hell.

Hot off the press! This pink and blue vinyl version for The BBC Sessions is exclusive to Green Day’s official store, and limited to 10,000 copies worldwide.
