as we know since a lot of time by now band of some metal genres like death, black, grindcore etc. have used in their logos brutal, vicious, disturbed and frequently cool fonts, but I think the is a limit, I mean for god sake, sometimes you can't even actually read the frickin name of the band, I came to the conclusion that some bands really crossed the line when I see this.

so tell me pit, someone of you have feeled like that? and if the answers is yes, what bands do you think have crossed the line?

coincidentally, i used the first result in that search (Biological Monstrosity) as an example of a bad logo during a lecture on typography.

Logos can be purely for aesthetic purposes though, who says they have to be readable? All these bands simply start off with their names, then use an outrageous font and next to no kerning to make a logo that's more of a picture than a text.
I mean, this doesn't say Jamiroquai:

but it still means Jamiroquai.
I kind of agree, but, you know, just sayin'.

Whatever was used to write 'Opeth'. Not brutal, but it's fucking metal.

I feel that this is relevant:
http://www.metalsucks.net/tag/completely-unreadable-band-logo-of-the-week/

Some of these are just ridiculous, obviously these are bands that don't care if anyone ever hears their music and you have to applaud their carefree approach, in my opinion
#20
There are plenty of Death metal bands that use a regularish font, it's next to ALWAYS Deathcore/hardcore/grindcore bands that use the insane font's like that.

I think waking the cadaver has the most intence logo, can hardly make a letter out of it, gotta stand back, I can figure it out however because i've figured it out before.


EDIT: TS, that logo says "Here come the kraken" in case you didn't know.

yeah, you really can't make a good metal logo without drawing it from scratch, but if you guys are interested, this is a cool site i use to find fonts, and there are some that are based off of metal bands, such as Cannibal Corpse, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Metallica, and a couple of generic black metal fonts. also, Cold Night for Alligator is a cool font.

They're ment to be unreadable! It just gives this moment of discovery in addition to the band's music, when you suddenly realise and shout "I've got it!!!" after staring at the logo for the last 4 days.

yeah, I know what it says, I often listen to that band, but I couldn't figure out what it says the first time I saw it, even today that i know what it says I can't figure out some letters

I'm think the OP is Awaken the Kraken, but I'm not sure. And some of the ones posted so far are at least legible. But yes, when you have to look for the letters in a logo to read it, you've gone to far.

EDIT: I was close
