"CVLT Nation Three is an exploration of dark symbols and occult imagery. We see the world through the eyes of alchemists and conjurors, and with their knowledge we create powerful magickal images to communicate with the universe. Through a connection to Nature's cycles of decay and life, we celebrate the night that precedes the dawn.
This season features one of a kind artwork from talented and well-known artists from the metal community. We worked with Alexander Brown, Bryan Proteau, Halseycaust and Elias Tormentor to create hand-drawn graphics that reflect the dark spirit of CVLT Nation. Each of our prints are signed by our artists, giving every garment its' just due as a piece of art.

Kokeshi are Japanese dolls, originally from northern Japan. They are handmade from wood, have a simple trunk and an enlarged head with a few thin, painted lines to define the face. The body has a floral design painted in red, black, and sometimes yellow, and covered with a layer of wax. One characteristic of kokeshi dolls is their lack of arms or legs. The bottom is marked with the signature of the artist.
Okiagari-koboshi is a Japanese traditional doll. The toy is made from papier and is designed so that its weight causes it to return to an upright position if it is knocked over. Okiagari-koboshi is considered a good-luck charm and a symbol of perseverance and resilience.
