TESTAMENT Vocalist Chuck Billy Expands “The Chief” Signature Vaporizer Line with New Products
Introducing Two New Collections:
– “The Chief” Signature Series of 420 Products
– “The Chief of Thrash!” Merchandise Line
Order from Both Collections Now via www.LordVaperUSA.com
In early 2015, iconic TESTAMENT vocalist Chuck Billy introduced his Signature Herbal Vaporizer pen, “The Chief”, by Lord Vaper Pens. In a time that most herbal smoking products and accessories were being marketed towards urban and hip-hop audiences, Chuck wanted to release a pen that hard rockers and metalheads alike could call their own.
Now, Chuck Billy and Lord Vaper Pens are thrilled to introduce two expanded collections – “The Chief” Signature Series, which will include a pipe (“Tomahawk”), an Oil Cartridge Battery (“Dream Catcher”), and a 2-in-1 Vaporizer (“War Drum”), and “The Chief of Thrash!” merchandise line, which will include a unique collection of merchandise including t-shirts, drawstring bags, mousepads, dog tags, phone cases, coasters and more. See below for information on each collection!
All items are available for purchase now via www.LordVaperUSA.com.
Chuck Billy says, “We’re excited to be expanding The Chief line beyond a vaporizer. It’s new and much improved from the first line. With the cannabis business expanding like it is, we’ve decided to expand it into three products that will cover any of your smoking needs. I’m also excited to work with the new owners of Lord Vaper Pens to promote The Chief products and The Chief of Thrash! merchandise collection. As of now, I’m hoping to have some new items available on the upcoming Testament off-dates with Lamb of God – so stay tuned to my social media and Lord Vaper Pens social media for more information on that.”
10% off discount code cards will be available at Testament’s merch area during their tour, beginning today. See below for a full listing of tour dates.
“The Chief” Signature Series is a collection of high quality products that are built to last, with a one year warranty on each. Each item in the series features an ergonomic design tailored for maximum discretion, great hand-feel, healthy consumption, and ease of use/cleaning.
The first item in the new “The Chief” signature series is a pipe dubbed the “Tomahawk” – a unique cone-shaped pipe with a completely enclosed Pod combustion chamber, giving it a look and functionality that’s totally discreet. The “Tomahawk” features a built-in lighter (~250 ignites per fill) so you’re always ready to spark-up, and it works great on windy days too. Featuring a unique interchangeable Pod-based system for loading material into session portions, just drop a Pod into the combustion chamber and light-up. The “Tomahawk” includes a smell-proof Stash Tube that holds four (4) extra Pods for pre-filling and taking on-the-go, an activated charcoal filter to trap and reduce the inhalation of toxic chemicals produced during combustion, a mouthpiece that easily disassembles for thorough cleaning, and a cool microfiber tote bag to keep everything with you and safe in your backpack, purse, briefcase, etc.
“The Chief” series will also feature an Oil Cartridge Battery, called the “Dream Catcher” – the ultimate in oil cartridge protection, completely enclosed in a spring-loaded top cover. The “Dream Catcher” fits easily in the palm, providing maximum discretion while consuming in public, and is rich with features such as an OLED battery status display, pre-heat function and three voltage settings. The “Dream Catcher” has a high-capacity 650mAh battery, providing long battery life so it’s always ready to go, and a set of adapters allow virtually all oil cartridges to fit. As with the “Tomahawk”, the “Dream Catcher” also includes a microfiber tote bag to keep everything together and protect your valuable investment.
Lastly, the series will feature a 2-in-1 Vaporizer called the “War Drum”, that once again features beautiful styling and a unique design that’s compact enough to fit in the palm of your hand for totally discreet consuming. The “War Drum” features a magnetic top cap, with an easily removeable Indian blood red glass mouthpiece for access to the heating chamber. The “War Drum” doesn’t have any parts that wear. This product includes a wax/concentrate Pod for those that enjoy consuming that type of material, an isolated airflow design that draws only external air into the pull, five optimized temperature settings to maximize the vaping experience, a huge-capacity 3200mAh battery giving you enough juice for at least ten (10) sessions per charge (replaceable through access door on the bottom), and a custom-designed, soft-shell carry case to store everything – including the ability to add a small lock to stop unwanted access.
Make sure to check out new “The Chief of Thrash!” merchandise line collection and swag yourself out with official “The Chief” merchandise featuring The Chief himself, Chuck Billy! Merchandise products will include t-shirts, drawstring bags, mousepads, dog tags, posters, phone cases, luggage tags, coasters and more. These items are available exclusively via www.LordVaperUSA.com.

I was recently able to interview Chuck on these new products as well as speak with him and Eric Peterson on the new Testament album and a false tour that has been spread around.
So how did you get into this industry?
Chuck: Back in 2015, I was appointed with the idea to have my own vaporizer. This was back when weed was only starting to become legal and the vapes were still in their infantcy in terms of battery life and stuff. So here we are years later after lord vapor was sold. He wanted to keep the Chief line going but wanted new products and I said sure. He did all his research, went to China and did his homework on the issues like the battery and how the mouth piece would break because of how you would put the mouth piece on and off. We solved that problem by putting a glass mouth piece on held by a magnet. We also made the batteries replaceable. This isn’t only for weed you can also use wax. We named this one the Wardrum instead of just the Chief cause now the Chief will be a variety of products. Now the second one was an oil vaporizor that vapes THC or CBD oils. We call this one the Dream catcher. Whats cool about it is the lid closes on top and you can fit it in your pocket. It also has amazing battery life as it last me a week. It’s my favorite so far. The third project is called the Tomahawk. It has a built in lighter. It works really well. Before the show i whiped it out and it worked like a champ I wish I could have made this into a video promoting it. These are not novelty products but quality ones. What I love about the vapes is, though I still enjoy smoking a joint but if i’m at a basketball game or a flight or in the movie theater, it’s great to have. Anywhere I can’t fire a joint it’s good to have. It is also for medical uses. I had a sister in law awhile ago pass away from cancer. She was very against smoking weed. And when she got cancer he doctor though suggested she smoke weed as we gave her a vape with some weed and it helped her with her appetite as she couldn’t eat. If someone never smoked before and they fired up a joint they would hack their lungs out so a vape is a good way for a novice smoker to try out for the first time.
Will these vapes be available at the shows and tours?
Chuck: We will have them on Testament tours and shows. We are also going to try to get as many retail places as possible to sell them. Right now the only way to get them is go online. Hopefully they hit the stores but they work really well and look really cool. We have all kinds of stuff from mouse pads and phone covers of the Chief of thrash artwork which is basically the skull with the Indian head dress on it.
How is this tour going?
Eric:Really well. Since Napalm and Behemoth swapped we now go on second instead of first. This makes it easier to rest and get something to eat before the show.
Chuck : We have a lot of history with Slayer. If this is really their last tour they are doing it right.
Any new music on the way?
Eric :Yeah we should have a new album out by next year. No name yet but we will do a tour for it.
Chuck : After this tour with Slayer, we aren’t booking any tours for a little while. We will work on the new album as soon as we get home. I’m not sure of the direction yet, but it will without a doubt be a thrash album. It’s hard to tell though because if anything that comes out of the norm happens and we like it, we just go with it. It’s what we did for the last few records.
How did that tour with Overkill,Suicidal Tenedieces and Death Angel happen?
Eric -Never heard about that tour. Would be a cool one if it was really!
Chuck : That’s not real. I’ve seen that posted around. Someone online made up a flyer i guess. I’ve seen stuff this allot lately.
