A Metal Holiday Gift Guide From About.com
On the gaming front is 'Guitar Hero Metallica,' but he also offers up the Washburn Heavy Metal series electric guitar, completely with jagged flying-V body that even Dethklok would be happy to find in their stocking. Bowar asks, "Instead of playing a video game simulating a guitar, why not learn to play the real thing?" Noise-canceling headphones and the new Sirius Stiletto also made the cut, and the latter has really taken XM radio to a new level.
The best idea on the list is a subscription to Revolver magazine. Outlets such as that and Decibel are still in print, and getting that fresh copy in your inbox (the non-electronic kind) is still a great feeling -- why not get your friends 12 gifts instead of one? Also, the DVD of 'Anvil! The Story Of Anvil' is included, which is unquestionably essential.
