Show Me Your Patches: Deathkings

Bassist and frontman Nicolas Rocha of Los Angeles sludge band Deathkings shows us his patches…. The editor agrees, that backpatch is badass!

My first patch on this vest was my Conan the Barbarian Thulsa Doom/twin-headed snake back patch.  Anybody that knows me knows that  love all things Conan!

The one I travelled the farthest for would technically be my Marduk patch. I got it from a bootlegger in Mexico.  It’s actually just the logo I cut off from the shirt I got, but that particular bootleg logo wasn’t printed on — rather, the letters were embroidered!  I totally lucked out!


One of my favorites would be my Cough patch, which I got after catching them at a house show during their tour for Ritual Abuse.
