German born artist Johann Joachim Püschel claims that the designer of Mayhem’s iconic logo plagiarised a detail from his work, The Keeper of the Infernal City, that he engraved in the mid 18th century.

Seriously though, I think band logos are often works of art in themselves, or at least the old, best ones are. There was some coffee table book released a while ago devoted to just that.

Something like the Emperor logo is a real masterpiece. Shame the guy that drew it now makes a living from drawing the damn things for every band that comes along - they all look the same, just like their music sounds the same.

Black Metal Logos are fucking terrible.

Load of indecipherable nonsense. Same with some of the more obscure death ones.

Fucking ridiculous.

WTF? How is this dude still alive to even know about it?

"plagiarised a detail from his work, The Keeper of the Infernal City, that he engraved in the mid 18th century"

I dont think he did engrave that in 1750 do you.

Either he's a liar or he is an immortal

i guess i found out why people hate it, because they dont know how to use it and because they've never seen the 6 channels. now whenever i see someone insult spiders, im thinking to myself "stupid n00b..." it's really a great amp.

That wasn't very funny at all.

Can't say i'm dissappointed though, as that would imply I had expectations of it prior to reading it.

A spokesman for Mayhem’s record label told us that the band were too drunk on their own sense of self-satisfied smugness and artistic bankruptcy to make any comment on the subject whatsoever, though it’s understood that Hellhammer confirmed he would indeed play the drums “for any cunt wot asks me, yeah?”


That one made me laugh.
