Every band has a logo. For metal, however, a logo is more important than any other genre. It gives the band an identity, and allows them to show off their art skills. Hell, it even tells you what the music is about!

A good logo:

Tells you what genre of music the band plays
The lyrical and musical theme
Just plain looks badass.

This is a thread to post the greatest metal logos.

I'll start: I'm sure you've probably seen most of these, but just to get them out of the way...

Morbid Angel


Death


Mystifier


Rainfall


Agalloch


Holy Terror


Dark Fortress


Nun Slaughter

Back when I was a teen, I was making out with this girl, when I had the bright idea of putting my hand inside her panties.

She had her period.

I'm scarred for life

They are horrible.

That would be a cool logo if it weren't for the horrendously crude happy/sad faces on either side

It also looks like balls.

Alright, I'll give them a try, Japanese Black Speed rarely disappoints.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

Next time, they should make something that's actually legible.

Also, @ Nun Slaughter.

I don't really like Death's old logo with the skull, spiders, blood, etc. It just seems too busy.

Goats Ass Trumpet's logo is pretty cool IMO. Gris's logos are amazing, i'm gonna check them out to see if their music lives up to them.

I like my logos simple, Just a good font. Primordial, Meshuggah, Paradise Lost, Nightingale, Dark Tranquillity.

A good symbol on the other hand...

I'll get some later.

Primordial have a good yet simple one. Same as Hellhammer and Amon Amarth.

I like complex logos better, however.

Ironic considering my band has an extremely simple logo.

can't be assed to find any pictures but the best logos around for decent metal bands have to be Machine ****in Head, Metallica, eXodus, Dream Theater and Lamb of God. Oh, and I guess Slipknots tribal "S" is pretty awesome.
I just hate the way any time someone mentions "metal" everyone immediately jumps on the "i have to be most brutal" bandwagon and just states anything to do with Death Metal.
Thrash is far superior

First time I saw Summoning's logo I was lost. It was plain but I could not ****ing read it for two days.

Most of the ones posted in this thread aren't death metal. Fail.
Lamb of God is not allowed in the metal forum. Fail.
Slipknot is not allowed in the metal forum. Fail.
