Crit me hard, crit me good,
My question you understood.
Brutalize my anatomy
Then I'll be very happy!
But the awnser I desire
Is "with or without the fire?"
The fire gives it more energy, while also bringing out the text more than the other.
I think with fire is better, but it just looks like a red and orange glow right now, not fire. Maybe give it a more dynamic fire-shape to the border of the glow?
At least Icarus tried!

particulary i like it without the fire but it does bring it out more with the fire
In the absence of light, dark will prevail.

yea so this is how my conclusion came about
i decided to join the rest of the crowd
the flames make the logo more effective
you could even make the skulls a bit reflective
and put some orange/red light from the fire
i hope i answered your question desire
You understood my little question
And replied with a suggestion
Thank you, thank you, thank you all!
Thank you big and thank you small..
Fire, I think, makes it scarry
And it's kinda necesary
Without it textures look much better
But it really makes it "METAL"!
Thank you all again, I say
More crits? Fire away!
The fire is more interesting, definitely adds an energetic mood to it, but it overshadows the more important text. I say thin the surrounding fire a bit and put a blazing outline around the text to make it stand out more than any part of the logo.
