Another year comes to an end. 2008 is drawing its last breaths and 2009 is ready-set-go to take its place.
Our wishes for you are very simple; be happy and be healthy and have tons of great music in your heads! For the first two you will have to take care of by yourselves and we will do our best to help you with the third!

It's a store, innit?
Due to some difficulties and problems some of you had in the past with our store and/or deliveries, we decided to pull the plug on the old one and start a new one.
We joined forces with Master of Metal (now also our official reseller) and put together a store through which we will be able to offer you more diverse merchandise with as few (preferably none, but you never know) problems as possible. On the other hand, our merchandise will not only be available on-line but also in Master of Metal stores; Master of Metal (LJ, Ledina center), Mordor (LJ, Kolosej), --- .
We also expanded our offer (you thought it would never happen, but it did, so there ...). You'll be able to find everything from CD's, DVD's, T-shirts, hoods, belts, wrist-bands, posters, mugs and wallets to keychains, led-lights and so on and on and on and ... Some of the stuff is still in production and we'll let you know about it as soon as it hits the "shelves".
We are also preparing "limited edition" merchandise which will be illustrated by our very good friend, Blaž Porenta a.k.a. NinjaAssn. These are some truly awesome pieces that will leave you breathless, so when you see them appear in stores or on-line, don't hesitate - because there are others out there who won't!
Oh, and yeah ... the credits cards are fully operational, Visa & MasterCard.
Where is the damn thing?
It's right here: www.masterofmetal.net/siddharta.
