olden font spells out the band's moniker but the true magic lies in the
skull and shield image which lends a regal quality to this logo.
spelled out in fiery letters with a devilish tail implies demonic
attributes but the bold white inverted cross removes any remaining
spikey letters intertwined with satanic symols perfectly convey the
antichristian qualities of the lyrics and musics. The white
border surrounding the bright red lettering makes the logo leap off the
page at your face.
decaying pentagram at the top of Darkthrone's logo and the staggered
draping of what can be descriped as roots lends the logo a wild and
natural beauty that screams long forgotten northern forests.
the best, most intricate logo ever. The web of ice looks
beautiful on what appears to be skeletal dragon
by the same artist who did the Unleashed logo, Crematory's takes a
smilar shape and drapes it with a web of decay and gore.
by a pentagram and two inverted crosses, the concurrently beautiful and
blasphemous logo from Tiamat soars on its demonic wings.
This logo is elegant and romantically mystical and well balanced with its swirling loops and pentagram.
logo looks like a sort of apocalyptic, robotic death machine. A
unique style that compliments Voivod's distinctive music.
delicate curves and symmetrical lines are contrasted by brutal gore and
webs of rot. A hollowed skull dominates this logo as it stares
down on the morbid decay. Also if you check the modern Bloodbath

this bold logo was as in your face as the old school, yet

inverted crosses for one of the more stylized logos of the period,
avoiding the typical dripping gore or gothic font.
the typical angled lines that so many other thrash bands used at this
time (Kreator, Slayer, Anthrax, Sadus, Slaughter, etc.) Dark Angel took
