This is off-topic, right? Anyhow, I'm wondering if anybody knows any cool font styles that I can download to use for writing, say, a title on an album cover? Something that would be suitable for death/black metal music.

You could mess around with flamingtext, it's good free stuff that I use in wallpapers and the like.

http://www.flamingtext.com/

Then there's cooltext, of course. They have various logo text designs and downloadable fonts. Some are just the same as flamingtext though.

Here's a cool one I found within a minute of using the site for the first time.

Put in some effort, stranger.

Thanks for the links, man. Sorry, I was kinda on a time-crunch when I posted that. I had to hurry up and get it posted before my boss caught me slackin' off haha.

This is a collection of a million Gothic fonts. But, dafont.com is EXCELLENT. You can find everything you like. But check these gothic fonts, so many variations.

Make sure to use fonts that are free for commercial use if you want to put it on an album cover. Dafont links to author's websites, you can usually find that info there. If you want to use a specific font but aren't sure if that's okay, write them a mail. You can also probably get away with not giving a shit, but don't take my word for it.

All the license information is usually in the readme files once you download the fonts, too. If there's no readme file, it's a good idea to check the creator's website, but it usually means the font is fine for commercial use.
