SLAYER coolers are here and they look pretty damn awesome
Cooler manufacturer Igloo has announced its collaboration with SLAYER — one of the most distinctive, influential, and extreme thrash metal bands of all time — by unleashing the first-ever coolers bearing the band’s name. Following suit with artists such as THE ROLLING STONES and IRON MAIDEN, and in partnership with the band’s licensing agent Global Merchandising, the all-new KoolTunes and Little Playmate coolers are available today in tribute to the International Day Of Slayer, the annual heavy metal holiday that celebrates the legendary band. To check out the coolers and place an order, log on to igloocoolers.com/slayer. Also, coming later in 2023, Igloo will be expanding the collection to include SLAYER drinkware.
“Collaborating with SLAYER to capture the band’s distinct and influential look onto our world-famous coolers has been incredible,” said Adrienne Berkes, vice president of marketing at Igloo. “Through our effectively chilling KoolTunes and Playmate, we’re providing SLAYER‘s legion of fans a unique and practical way to show their undying devotion to the band.”
“We are very excited to continue our partnership with Igloo and extend it to one of the pioneers of metal music. The collection Igloo has put together to honor SLAYER will undoubtedly be a fan favorite and we look forward to doing more with Igloo and their talented team,” said Jens Drinkwater, head of licensing worldwide.
The band’s impact on thrash metal music is undeniable, and their influence can be seen in the artwork of this new cooler collection. The “Reign In Blood” KoolTunes ($174.99) — Igloo‘s fan-favorite 14-quart (holds up to 26 cans) Playmate cooler with built-in, weather-resistant Bluetooth speakers — channels the band’s boundary-pushing third album, arguably the greatest speed metal album of all time. Additionally, Igloo designed the 7-quart (holds up to 9 cans) “Graveyard” Little Playmate ($39.99) with a black base, an all-black lid and skeleton graphics, an all-over design that wholly embodies the dark side and perfectly captures the band’s essence.

Born from a modest metalworking shop back in 1947, Igloo has been instrumental in redefining how we live, work and play. What began with bringing clean water to the worksite quickly moved into super-functional, best-in-class ice chests. Igloo products made the family outdoor recreation movement of the 20th century possible. Suddenly, taking your kids camping on the weekend became easy and cross-country road trips became a summer vacation staple.
