Those of you who follow the eternally epic saga that is KISStory, you might remember the most evil and excellent product they ever offered was almost certainly the Kiss Kasket. During the years 2001 through 2008, this product was sold as a real coffin (though the fact that it was waterproof often led to it being used as a Kiss Kooler for their Cold Gin.) One of the more famous people to be buried in one of these coffins was the tragically murdered Dimebag Darrell of Pantera [RIP.] Now, after a terrible two years of the world not being able to purchase this piece of devilry, Eternal Image Inc is teaming up with the band to offer a brand new one (plus some more deadly items as well.)
This casket doesn’t appear to have an official KISS name yet, but will be available through Eternal Image’s “normal funeral home and distributor channels” and will be available directly from KISSonline.com where the band sells all their official merchandise. AND not only will there be a coffin, there’ll be a full line of products for death: caskets (aka more than one style I’d imagine,) cremation urns, bronze memorials, memorial prayer cards, registry books, memorial candles, and pet cremation urns. Check out the full press release below:
