NEWS: Russian fan makes Paul Baloff RIP patch to honour Baloff's Russian heritage

This is an amazing woven bootleg patch produced by a Russian fan honouring the Russian heritage of the Exodus vocalist Paul Baloff RIP (who was the vocalist on the Bonded by Blood album). I love how Baloff's Russian name is mentioned (Pavel Baloff) and then we get the hammer-and-sickle symbol of the old communist Soviet Union overlaid on the pentagram. I have never seen these two symbols put together before but to me it just says "working-class metal"! It's great to see people honouring Russia's communist era past. We should see more imaginative patches like this. Most licensed patches are very boring. Full marks for this. You may find one on Ebay [by Jack Frost].
