In the center there.

I've seen it (or variations thereof) on a few album covers and I'm betting it's not just a series of repeated inverted pentagrams and triangles and sundry other geometrical shapes. Or rather if it is it means a whole bunch of different things.

Can anyone shed a little light?

Not sure, but maybe you can find it somewhere here. It's not on that stars page but is perhaps somewhere else there.

Well, that was a fascinating read. But I'm sure in reality it's just a couple neckbeards sitting around making that shit up.

Hm...

That's not quite it (unless it's another variation), and I don't think it's associated with hardcore Satanism.

Thanks for the input though!

there have been rumours floating around for decades (at least since the mid 90's when I first stumbled across their literature) that the ONA is a MI6 "honey trap" operation used to identify possible far-right terrorists.

BM bands seem really into triangles these days for some reason. My guess is they just wanted to use a symbol with as many triangles in a circle as they could find.

Realistically, it very well may be associated with, a variation of (though clearly different), or an attempt at creating something similar to the symbol in Frogger's link, but I really do think it's more likely another case of so-called trianglecore BM bands being trianglecore BM bands and plastering their album art with esoteric/potentially made-up symbols they may only tangentially grasp the significance of themselves, or have possibly created or otherwise developed their own very esoteric and mysterious meanings for.

A lot of bands right now who want to be the next DsO seem to be really caught up in the idea of developing a lot of half-baked or simply borrowed esoteric, occult/mystic, neo-satanist imagery and cool robes to go along with their music, and a lot of these bands just seem to just be winging it. I'm not saying this band is necessarily guilty of that, or that the act of developing or re-contextualizing symbols is in itself remotely improper, but it does seem seem like something being forced by an awful lot of bands right now, so I'm frequently skeptical of most contemporary BM bands who're clearly being inspired by the current "orthodox" BM trend. It basically just seems like something bands are doing in an attempt to stay relevant.
