    why did hoolang repeat what i said? also Jacob, i think with the modern Heavy Metal scene people are starting to consider fairly readable fonts, the bands you posted earlier are pretty dated.

    Hardcore:


    metal-core:
    Metal band logo, need pointers
    Metal band logo, need pointers
    Metal band logo, need pointers

    Death-core:
    Metal band logo, need pointers
    Metal band logo, need pointers

    Death Metal:
    By the way, the designer that did all these bands in the below picture is definitely worth checking out!

    Djent:
    I wouldn't say this has made it as a genre 100% at the moment but soon it will be recognised as another metal genre.

    nintendo-core:

    thrash metal:

    Black metal:

    If you'd like to see who a huge group of modern metal bands are getting their stuff designed by, check out Dan Mumford here:

    This is some of his stuff:

    Christophe Szpajdel's designs, (the ones under death metal) are also fairly dated but i thought i'd add them in because he is good good at what he does, however, a handful of those bands on that sheet are black metal.

    I dont recognise any of the bands on that sheet other than emperor but at a glance i would consider them all to be a black metal style of logo, and symphonic black metal at that.

    Classic Death metal logos tend to be much more messy and basic while those logos are very clean and intricatly detailed.

    So much more like the Defeated sanity logo Jacob posted.

    Not that any of this matters much as I dont think the OP has even said what genre the logo needs to be has he?

    No worries.

    I just looked moonspell up on youtube and I'm not surprised I dont know them to be honest. In general I cant stand anything that has even small symphonic elements so I dont know many bands in that area.

    Here's what I did for my band last year:

    Metal band logo, need pointers

    I decided to redesign our logo because our sound got much heavier and even more melodic. I felt our original logo (below) didn't show who we were anymore.

    Metal band logo, need pointers

    All I did to design the new one is look at bands I know we are similar to as well as other bands' logos that I really like. I took my favorite aspects of each and tried to combine them all into one.

    To me, it was really important that the logo be easy to read and have lots of rough edges.

    I really like the end result. It made for really easy application to our website and merch (shirts, etc.).

    Thanks I'm proud of how it turned out.

    We will hopefully be recording this summer/fall, so I will be able to make new album art with the logo finally!

    There are a lot of different kinds of metal with individual aesthetics. You're not giving us much to go on.

    Metal has so many subgenres now that it's almost an art form itself.
    Didn't know about NintendoCore, now I know what I'll be listening this month. Thanks!
