Metallica’s Kirk Hammett launches Ghoul Screamer coffee
Metallica’s Kirk Hammett has launched his own brand of coffee.
The Ghoul Screamer blend from El Salvador is the result of a collaboration between Hammett and music industry veteran David Karon’s KHDK Electronics firm and Dark Matter Coffee.
The striking artwork on the packet is from Daniel Kurz and designed by Jennifer Ferguson.
A description on the coffee reads: “Guarding a serpentine circuit of obsidian, Ghoul Screamer was forged in the bottomless mines of Az’g’orath to protect humanity from the forces of evil by summoning the scream of the Ghoul – from ‘ghôùll, Sumarian for ‘sick tone’).
“Heed the prophecy: Only warriors of the sacred caffeine-to-blood ratio will wield the power of Ghoul Screamer, a fully fermented brew with waves of untamed punch. Those unworthy will be consumed by its force.”
Watch a video trailer for Ghoul Screamer below. The coffee is now available to purchase directly through the Dark Matter Coffee website.
Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante launched his Be All End All and Forever Metal dark roast in 2015, while Megadeth bassist David Ellefson revealed his Kenya Thrash blend last year. Dark Matter Coffee are also behind Mastodon’s Crack The Skye blend.
Metallica have just kicked off the UK leg of their WorldWired tour in support of latest album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct. Find the band’s list of tour dates below.
