I like how a third (maybe even closer to a half) of the logos posted aren't mirrored at all. If you would mirror them they're similair, but they are not the same.

Thyrfing


It may be a bit off topic but if you look at the logo of Ensiferum:

Image

and turn it 180°, mirroring it:

Image

you can (with a little imagination) read 'Wintersun' which is the present band of the old Ensiferum singer who got kicked out in 2004.

Lago's logo looks mirrored on first glance. I didn't realize the slight differences in either half until just recently.

What's with that overblown version?

The actual logo is merely this (the same which is on Marianas) without all that additional stuff.

The differences are incredibly easy to notice. Thyrfing isn't symmetrical either, but of course the fundamental idea (without the additional details) is a mirrored logo.

I didn't know they were making a new album. Thanks for the heads up. :thumbsup:

Lago? Yeah, they're going into the studio on Friday to do a couple new ones. Their guitarist Cole and I had talked about me drumming on the album if need be as he and I are buds, but they got a new full time guy a few months ago and me working with them never came to be.

Not perfectly symmetrical but close enough.

I think the word in bold is the point of the thread, because there aren't that many bands that have logos that are perfectly mirrored.

Frozenith: The second and third obviously aren't mirrored. It's incredibly easy to notice even without using any kind of software to flip it.

The middle one is an excellent example of a mirrored logo though.
