    Those spikey pin looking logos always pissed me off, they remind me of those children’s block toys with the hundreds of plastic pins that fasten them together. No clue what they’re called, but I’m sure some hipster will happen upon this & say they collect them lol.

    I wonder if a band will ever come up with a logo that is original instead of following formula, almost everyone follows the metallica design with the two big/exaggerated letters or some variation on other bands from the era. Granted there are only so many possibilities but come on. Yea I get it, influences blah blah blah but that’s what cover songs are for. No need for cover logos. Nasty disaster from Ct does a funny (what I presume is a) parody with their logo. They just took each letter from various metal bands & pieced it together.

      band logos are kind of stupid period. Sigils or pictographs I think are better, rather than embellished lettering.

        You can`t even appreciate the fine art of calligraphy, !

        1. S.C. says:

          Calligraphy is one thing (and something I do appreciate!) Logos are another… they seem like the product of bored teenagers scribbling in notebooks.

          1. ugh says:

            Implying metal at large isn’t the result of bored teenagers fucking around.

            1. Rainer Weikusat says:

              People are usually bored because they lack the energy to do anything beyond being bored.

            2. S.C. says:

              The music was way they did out of school, not being bored but productive. The logos were what they scribbled out during class to distract themselves from school. Metal was not a visual art movement.

    2. Reactionary Reasons says:

      There was a great article the structural significance of band logotypes in extreme metal the in the now defunct — and ANUS/DLA/DMU-affiliated — Hessian ‘zine. If somebody happen to have a cache, mirror, or PDF it would be greatly appreciated to get a hold of it.

      I can smell your point but you are probably such a massive cocksucker you can’t see past the hairy balls enough to realize they’re sorta tributing Sadistik Exekution’s logo, one of the oldest riffless war metal bands that put more emphasis on image and presentation than actual music. BUt SadEx we’re fucking way better live, look up any war metal band playing a war metal fest and you’ll see piggy sorta queer looking dudes humped over sweating heavily into a mic while playing their whole two riffs, standing completely still as if they’re doing anything remotely strenuous, underwhelming as hell. SadEx were energetic and sorta crazy live, but war metal is the ska of metal, retarded music with it’s own dress code that attracts a specific type of faggot.

      1. Marc Defranco says:

        SadEx, Bestial Warlust and few others from 90s are the only “war metal” type bands worth a listen. Maybe one Diocletian album and first Revenge EP for later stuff.

        1. Conqueror and Sacramentary Abolishment were probably the best, and even those faded.

          Stick to Blasphemy and early Beherit and all will be well.

          Nu-death and nu-black have really shit the bed (STB) because the practitioners are not all that mentally alert compared to the originals, and the audience is comprised of “me too” idiots who cannot recognize quality from shit.

          1. S.C. says:

            Wait so is it just Maraat who hates Conqueror? Also, what about Order From Chaos?

            Sidenote: has Anyone here listened to the Genocide Shrines LP?

            1. All of our staff hates Conqueror. Why don’t you search for the Order From Chaos reviews to figure out our general thoughts on their records? We have an Order From Chaos tag here and there’s one album we haven’t sodomized. Zug zug back to work.

              1. S.C. says:

                Take a breath pal. I have already. Just think the band is worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as blasphemy and beherit.

                Not that I care about Conqueror, but I am only curious then, why Brett said conqueror was the best, along with sacramentary abolishment. Perhaps this statement was supposed to be ironic, but that is not always translated so well via internet.

            2. Marc Defranco says:

              I have listened. Genocide Shrines is better than their contemporaries of the style but nothing to go crazy about

              1. S.C. says:

                I quite disagree. it’s a fantastic album.

                1. Marc Defranco says:

                  Fair enough, wouldn’t say it’s fantastic but good, and worth a purchase

          2. Marc Defranco says:

            Yeah I like the Conqueror full length enough but first Revenge EP bit more. Just concise and straightforward, perfect length for this type of music, but after they fell off for the most part.

            Yes I agree Blasphemy and Beherit are the only required listens, but for Aussie metal SadEx demos/the magus and first BW are classics along with SoL.

            I’m not sure why so many of these mediocre bands are being peddled by labels. I can’t even tell if they get anything out of the investment and they have to know they’re signing mediocrity. Why not just hold out for talent?

            1. Beherit riffs nothing like Conqueror and Blasphemy though. There’s really no need to mention them with the crossover thrash with punkier riffs than Cro Mags. Sadistik Exekution pissed their pants after the debut too. Martire was probably the best Australian band but that’s not saying much. Gospel of the Horns maybe too but they’re speed metal.

              1. AC/DC is the best Australian band.

              2. Marc Defranco says:

                I only mention early Beherit because those releases are often lumped together with them, but I think early Beherit is similar to Blasphemy.

                I agree about SadEx, that’s why I said only demos and the magus are worth time. To me the best Australian band is Spear of Longinus

                1. S.C. says:

                  SoL is top tier.

        2. S.C. says:

          War of all against all is a good album

          1. Marc Defranco says:

            Yeah that’s the one I was thinking of. The rest aren’t worth time but maybe the first EP.

  2. Betchu didn't love me 'til I got a fat City address says:

    Definitely a news-worthy article! “A band plays 1 show, in Oceania.”
