The Brutal Patches of America’s Biggest Metal Fest

June 2, 2014 | Andy Cush

At this year’s Maryland Deathfest, photographer Adel Souto snapped photos of that most brutal of fashion accessories: the metal back patch. Attendees’ attire ranged from the expected (a patch repping Deathfest itself) to questionable (black metal bigot Burzum) to baffling (this guy‘s stars-and-bars-laden “party on my dick” patch). See some highlights in the gallery and the rest at No Echo.
