Jeff Hanneman “Still Reigning” Picture Frame Test Run Is Now Available!

Jeff Hanneman "Still Reigning" Picture Frame Test Run Is Now Available!

After getting bombarded with requests about the Jeff Hanneman “Still Reigning” Picture Frame I posted on Instagram, I decided to make a test pressing to see if I could replicate it. The test looked amazing and even better than I expected. I am making a limited quantity available for now. I hand make each one. This is not some cheap Ali Babba crap.

See The “Unboxing” On YouTube

Also, if you watch the video to the end — take note of the “secret compartment” 🙂 I’m not sure I’m going to keep putting these in after the first run (or if there will be another run LOL).

More Info:

About the Jeff Hanneman “Still Reigning” Picture is a 5 inch by 7-inch picture frame made with a copy of the actual program from the Jeff Hanneman memorial service at the Palladium in Los Angeles June 21st, 2013. 

This is not official Slayer merchandise ., it is simply a tribute to the greatest thrash metal guitarist/songwriter of all time Mr. Jeffrey John Hanneman 1/31/1964 – 5/2/2013. Ships USPS economy with tracking in a padded 8.5 x 6 mailer with an extra layer of bubble wrap to prevent breakage. Feel free to contact me on eBay if you have any questions, comments or concerns.

Like metal?
See the rest of the awesome metal!

Lastly, they are cheap. The cost barely covers putting them together. The shipping cost covers the boxing and bubble wrap required to get them to you in one piece. 🙂

Without sounding like some cheesy marketer, I have a feeling these will go fast, so here is the link – https://thrashmetaliq.com/jeff

Cover Of The Four Hour Fogger Demo Tape Circe 1994

The Story Of Four Hour Fogger

Four Hour Fogger local Atlanta band that Troy Sanders and Brent Hinds were in prior to Mastodon. I used to be in a band that played with them quite often. Brent or Troy gave me this back in the 1990s, but I never listened to it because we played together all the time and even rehearsed in the same building. The vocalist is Gary Lindsey who would go on to be in Assjack with Hank 3.

four hour fogger

The style in more punk/hardcore that Mastodon, but this is when Brent and Troy started playing together. In 1994 Braun and Bill moved up from New York and Mastodon began.

The rest is history and this is your chance to own a piece of it.

Probably Made At Kinkos – This Tape Is Hand Written By Troy Sanders

The writing on the tape is hand written by Troy Sanders, who was the most was of the guys and the defacto “manager”.

I don’t have a cassette player so I thought this would be a great pick-up was for a die-hard Mastodon fan!

This is NOT official Mastodon merchadise and is simply being sold as a collectable.

Four Hour Fogger YouTube

This rare footage is from a show in New Orleans.

Refernces In WikiPedia

Here is the Wikipedia reference from Brent’s Wikipedia page;

Hinds left Alabama for Atlanta, Georgia in pursuit of a music career. It was at this time that he met Troy Sanders, a future member of Mastodon. According to Sanders, he “lived in his van for the next five years”, becoming a member of Sanders’ then band, Four Hour Fogger. The first practice he attended with this band he allegedly “showed up so wasted he couldn’t even play”.

Once Four Hour Fogger fell apart, the two stuck together, eventually meeting Brann Dailor and Bill Kelliher at a High on Fire concert in “their friend’s basement”. The four began a new musical venture with then singer Eric Saner, touring the southern USA, working 40-hour weeks and committing to the band in their spare time. The band’s mainstream success would ensue after Saner left the band, pushing Hinds to the forefront not just as a guitarist, but as a vocalist also, the duties of which he would share with Sanders.

This is a 10 Day Auction That Will Run From May 17th and the 27th and Starts At 99 cents!
