Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett has a new coffee line that will wake you up faster than cranking up “Master of Puppets” first thing in the morning. 

Born of a collaboration with Chicago-based coffee shop Dark Matter, Hammett’s “Ghoul Screamer” coffee takes its name from a revered pedal the legendary axman created for his electronics company, KHDK.

The blend’s over-the-top origin story is as berserk as Hammett’s blistering solos.

Guarding a serpentine circuit of obsidian, Ghoul Screamer was forged in the bottomless mines of Az’g’orath to protect humanity from the forces of evil by summoning the scream of the Ghoul. (from “ghôùll”, Sumarian for “sick tone”).

Heed the prophecy; only warriors of the sacred caffeine-to-blood ratio will wield the power of Ghoul Screamer, a fully fermented brew with waves of untamed punch. Those unworthy will be consumed by its force.

Jesus Christ, Kirk! But don’t let all that intensity turn you off—the El Salvador roast’s notes of apricot, praline and mulling spices actually sound delicious.
