Earlier this month, Denver’s legendary horror-thrash act Axeslasher announced that they would be releasing a live album just in time for Halloween. Now, the band have revealed that one merch bundle for the new album will include a very special product: their new hot sauce, affectionately dubbed ‘The Assgasher.’
The sauce comes via a collaboration between the band and Denver hot sauciers Sauce Leopard, and will arrive with the band’s record in the form of a bundle called the ‘Special Sauce Edition.’ And in case you were wondering, yes — it goes well on pizza.
“When Sauce Leopard revealed their diabolical plan to unleash hell on the tongues and asses of the masses, we knew we found the right partner!” says Axeslasher frontman Professor Pizza. “After a few short conversations, they bottled pure hatred that goes great on pizza, wings, or the charred flesh of your enemies. We are proud to offer a Special Sauce Edition of our new album, Dead Alive through Sauce Leopard.”
“Our goal when forming this unholy union with Axeslasher was to create the perfect sauce for an extra greasy slice of pizza,” says Shaun Goodwin, head honcho over at Sauce Leopard. “We went to a few Axeslasher shows, sampled blood from 25 head-banging mozzarella fiends, added some garlic and chili peppers — and the Assgasher sriracha sauce was contrived. It now stands as the world’s best heavy metal hot sauce, gashing every ass in its path.”
Check out the band’s sensuous commercial for this tongue-blistering concoction:
Axeslasher’s ‘Special Sauce Edition’ bundle is available for preorder, and contains a preorder for a vinyl copy of Dead Alive (which will ship in mid-November) and a 5 oz bottle of ‘The Assgasher’ (which will ship immediately). There are only 20 of these bundles available, though, so if you absolutely must have your ass ripped wide open, order now!
