BLACK SABBATH Tribute Goal Mask Unveiled
According to InGoal Magazine, Massachusetts recreational hockey goaltender Liz Conner has had a BLACK SABBATH-themed goalie mask created by Headstrong Grafx.
”I asked specifically for the picture of Henry (the flying devil logo) on the forehead, based on alternative CD art for 'The Devil You Know' and the band name on the chin," Liz said. "My only other stipulation was that the mask not focus 100% on Ozzy. Tony Iommi's riffs are what drew me to SABBATH, and I wanted to make sure he was included somewhere. The rest was all Headstrong."
As previously reported, backup goaltender Chris Mason of the NHL hockey team Nashville Predators recently debuted his new mask, featuring a tribute to British heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN in the shape of the band's mascot Eddie.
The design in question utilizes Eddie from the Egyptian-themed cover of MAIDEN's "Powerslave" album, which also produced the single "Aces High" and corresponding Eddie included on Mason's 2011 Winnipeg Jets mask. Both covers were originally created originally by artist Derek Riggs, who inspired the mask's artist, Steve Nash of EyeCandyAir.
