As far as I know we haven't had this thread, could be kinda fun. What makes a great band logo? I think it has to not just be awesome but reflect the music that it's attached to. And it doesn't hurt if I'm compelled to draw it in the margins of my notes during particularly boring lectures. ;) Here's a few of my faves:

By far the best black metal logo. Legible yet crusty and evil.

The only "let's throw a bunch of shit on the letters in our logo" logo that looks good.

http://blackestoftheblack.com/SkeletonWitchLogo%20.jpg
The perfection of the highly angular style.

That skull!

http://elabryth.files.wordpress.com/2010/03/opeth-logo.jpg
The most elegant logo ever.

A close second to Opeth in elegance.

Definitely agree. It really stands out among the black metal logos. It seems like 90% of black metal logos rely on the same format; almost perfectly symmetrical with an inverted cross on each side. ie: Tsjuder and Beastcraft.

^Dayan, Blasphemophagher's is fucking fantastic. :fist:

Josh, the Maiden logo is good, but not top tier in my opinion. That font is forever indelibly linked with the band, though, and I suppose that is worth something.

The thread is called "favorite band logos" so people are just posting images of there favorite band logos. It would be more retarded if there just posting logo images from bands that they dont even listen to:cool:

anyways....
