The Prize

This auction is for a collectable set of helmet and shield which were used in the cover-shoot of the January 2007 issue of Metal Hammer magazine featuring Trivium.
The band took the weapons home but the helmet and shield set remained on donator, Alexander Milas’ desk for the length of his tenure at Metal Hammer and has been toyed with by everyone from Ville Valo to Mastodon.
Trivium are an American heavy metal band from Orlando, Florida, formed in 1999. The band has sold over one million albums worldwide. Trivium is one of the notable New Wave of American Heavy Metal acts.

Alexander Milas has donated this experience to the Heavy Metal Truants to support Nordoff Robbins, Childline & Teenage Cancer Trust

The Cause

The Heavy Metal Truants is a charity cycling group co-founded by Metal Hammer’s former editor-in-chief, Alexander Milas, and Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood to equally benefit three charities: Childline, Nordoff Robbins and Teenage Cancer Trust. To date, it has raised £338,000.

Now in its fifth year, the cycle ride consists of an annual, three-day, 164-mile pedal from London to the Download Festival, and it’s open to fans, bands, and industry types alike. A component of these fundraising efforts is the annual Monster Rock Auction, featuring rare memorabilia generously donated by the great and good of the rock and metal industry.

"The Heavy Metal Truants are an extraordinary group of people," says Alexander Milas, "but what's really remarkable is just how supportive the greater musical community has been with such generous and unique donations. We hope you’ll enjoy, bid generously, and please keep checking back as we’ll be adding more in the coming weeks!”
