Is there any sort of rule or guide about death metal logos? Any kind of advice?

Being unreadable is non-negotionable

Make it as fucking gay as possible, they love that shit. 90s gay. Tribal. Bones. Barbed wire. You know, gay as fuck.

Try to relate it to the band. Too many are just "cool font" shit but relating the font and style to the band makes it alot better. Look at xasthur's logo for an example. Unreadable and strange, but not just "cool font" like you see with so many bands.

You draw your letters and just go batshit on them, just keep shaping everything into edgy shit, morph it to be more symmetrical, then go at it again, just don't think about what you're doing, just let your inner edgelord out.
Once you like the rough shape you trace that into a clean version and start the real work.

There are some things that define a metal band logo. That's why he must mean with "rules".

Obviously "Party Cannon" stands out among all the logos in the photo, but if you show someone that exact logo they will hardly tell you that it was made for a metal band since it doesn't have any of those crazy shapes.

All those except 2nd highest most leftmost look boring and shitty as fuck.
If you aren't experienced, just write the letters normally first but progressively add more metall-y or gothic-looking elements, take examples from Proclamation and Blasphemy.

you guys have any favorite metal fonts?
ive been using Black Castle, Amador, Baroque Text, and Cabadon a lot and need some more.
>>
>>398746
the easy/lazy way to get the base look before you add the thorns n shit is to type out the name in a font and then erase some of the edges
>>
>>398952

either one of these, you name it
>write it as if you were carving it out of someone's skin for a summoning ritual
>write it as if you were being enlightened by god himself to write down the new testament in an angelic language and the word is so powerful the spacetime fabric can barely contain it
>give it some weird alien organic aspect
>it's a dry tree

It's alright but you need to work on that anti-aliasing.

it is pretty rough. i didnt vectorize it i just made the basic shape in procreate then started messing with it in photoshop.
any other critiques? a lot of stuff ive made lately just feels like design plus generic bg. wondering if i need to add more elements or something.
