Every Shirt CXLV: Zircon

shirt: Zircon
size: XL (US)
vintage: 2007
provenance: band

Picked up sometime in early 2007, when Zircon was at their most recent most active, this is a utilitarian DIY-style shirt (back: New England Black Fucking Metal in blackletter) that doesn't need much further explanation or introduction. Unfortunately, the band may; while members have since gone on to make major contributions to Vital Remains, Belphegor, and the running of Metal Thursday, Zircon has been kind of quiet as a band for the last year or two. In their heyday, though, they annoyed some people by seemingly getting on every show ever, and to everyone else, consistently provided killer black-death metal at a level that, obviously, got Scott and Anthony called up for those bands, respectively. Such is the scene; time ebbs and flows, and even good bands pass from the earth.
