Like extreme sports and motorcycles and participate in those activities? Then we have good news for you, as Bleeding Through bassist Ryan Wombacher has launched Hellmerica Customs, a brand new company serving the motorcycle and extreme sports communities. Wombacher is a longtime Harley enthusiast and a skateboarder, as is customary for rock and metal dudes. Bikes! Boards! Basses! Those are critical item for any quality rock dude worth his salt! But Wombacher is taking his passion a step further by putting it into action in a way that benefits others who share his interests.

So what does Hellmerica –cool name, by the way- do? It boasts a line of uniquely hand-painted helmets, boards and more.

"Ever since I bought my first car, a 1971 Ford Torino, at the age of 16, I've been messing around with custom painting," Wombacher said in a statement. "One summer during a break from touring with Bleeding Through, I decided to take my hobby to the next level by forming this company." Anyone who is in a band knows the job comes with plenty of down time in between tours and recording, so Wombacher made the most of his free time.

Wombacher's initial run of hand-painted, vintage motorcycle helmets did well so he was inspired to branch out in incremental steps. Airbrush, one-shot paint, pin striping, gold/silver leafing and leather tooling are among the skills Wombacher has developed with Hellmerica!

Hellmerica Customs has also expanded to include custom paint jobs for guitars, basses and other band equipment. To boot, the company launched a brand new online store. Custom designs are a hallmark of Hellmerica. "Everything I do is one of a kind. I don't like to repeat myself," Wombacher said.

We love an ambitious and creative rocker who puts his other skills to work.
