Tell me the name of the band what kind of style it is and anything else that will help with the logo. All the logos are done in my free time and may take a day or two. I will just make a list in order of the posts and work from that.

*please post band information in the thread so i can keep track of the order.

here is a link with some of the logos i have done.

Logos working on:
1. Insurgency
2. Spewtilator
3. Decibel Hammer
4. Sküllsplitter
5. Esssse
6. Dead & Dripping
7. Leaking head

My band has a logo but I'm actually wanting to have the next album title's typeface be something custom created rather than just using a font.

What I'm looking for is the word "Insurgency." I don't have any specifications since you always do awesome work, just that it be legible. A link to our website is in my signature if you want to get a feel for what we sound like/our imagery. Thanks in advance!

Nice work man!

If you'd like, do one for Spewtilator. I would like to request that references to weed, burritos, barf, satan, chainsaws, and/or malt liquor be used and that it not be a typical "thrash" logo if you know what I mean. I really liked the Deathfog, Niflheim, Eternal Decay, and Bloodwraith logos but it doesn't really have to look like those. I do like lots of melt/dripping though since it kinda pertains to the band name.

If you want a point of reference you can download both of our cassettes from the blog in my sig or check out some jams on one of the links below. The songs vary depending on which link but myspace has tracks from both the tapes if you don't want to bother downloading. We're kind of a mix of death metal, thrash, grindcore, and fast hardcore/punk.

http://reverbnation.com/spewtilator
http://myspace.com/spewtilator
http://facebook.com/spewtilator

thanks dude!

Sküllsplitter.

We are a blackened thrash band in the vein of Goatwhore, Skeletonwitch, and Celtic Frost. Can the logo be kind of like an old school heavy metal logo with a diabolical twist like
Image
and
Image

But add things like upsidedown crosses, pentagrams, pot leafs, skulls, blood, bones, and stuff of that nature, into the logo. Whatever looks good (the ümlat is optional). Have fun with it!

Could you improve and rework the logo for my project Esssse? Keep the overall layout and the phoenix but improve the look of it? The music is ambient black metal with folk influences in the vein of Ulver, Agalloch, and Skagos with an emphasis on nature.

Dead & Dripping is the name of my one man brutal death metal project I'm starting soon. If I can find some band members that'd be even better, but for now I guess I'm by myself.
It isn't brutal death metal in the Devourment or Mortician sense but more of a Cannibal Corpse/Krisiun hybrid style.
Frankly you can design it however you feel would fit well! You're the artist lool!! You probably know better than I.

Hey CC,
nice to see that you're back at drawing logos.
Thanks again for the one you did for me years ago! :-D

If you could "Rakesh Wahya" is the name of my solo Blackened Folk/Thrash project, so far the lyrical theme's are based around nature and certain aspect's of space, however I'm planning on incorporating more Native American folk lore later.
Rakesh is "Supreme Spirit" and Waya is "wolf".
EDIT: sorry found out Ohanzee is Sioux.

Nice work, man i hope you can help us out. This is my band Info:

Name: Arz Goetia
Genre: Melodic Death/Doom/Gothic Metal (growls and female vocals)
Lyrical Themes: Occult, Lovecraft, Satanism
Influences: Opeth, Draconian, My Dying Bride, Moonspell, Dark Tranquillity, Swallow The Sun, Tristania, Garden Of Shadows, Therion

Notes: The other singer (she is the founder of this project) likes the whole autumn branch-looking logos and if u could add a candle or a subtile satanist detail would be great, thanx in advance.

Thanks a lot for doing this!

Name: Vathis
Genre: black metal
Lyrics: personal stuff, history, spirituality
Influences: Opeth, Darkthrone, Enslaved, Night Conquers Day, Agalloch, Dissection

In terms of what the logo should look like, we'd want something like the logos of Opeth, Night Conquers Day, and Absu. Basically that dark almost gothic, heavily embellished style, but with some Byzantine flavor (see below).

Hey
I'm in need of a band logo
I have changed the name from "Gaia" to "Nidra"
I want something similar to this logo but with a bit more flowery detail like Opeth's logo
"Nidra" is my one man project, I play alot of ambient and alot of prog rock/metal in the vein of Opeth, Cynic, Yes and Gentle Giant
I also play alot of acoustic stuff too
all in all it is a very jumbled mess of musical genres and styles
Thanks.

Really cool that you're doing this. I need a logo for my band : Axis
Of Frost. Kind of black,death metal. Lyrical themes are mostly about the apocalypse and suicide. It does not have to be super legible cause I'm a fan of ornamentation,but not brutal death metal levels of unreadability.

Great stuff, like others have mentioned. Here's my request...

Name: Levaasth
Genre: technical thrash
Lyrics: dreaming, the mind, apocalypse
Influences: too diverse to list

Basically I'd like the logo to be straight, angular and roughly symmetrical. Think Voivod, or Vektor.

Image
Image

I don't want the robotic look of the above bands' logos. A clean, white-on-black look would be preferred, kinda like the Skeletonwitch logo posted above. And please avoid making it look like a generic modern thrash logo. Thanks for your help.

PS: Here's a rough sketch I made with Paint. I couldn't really force the EV and ST to look symmetrical so I'm hoping you can. Just roughly symmetrical would do; no need to make it perfect.

I might as well put in my order before it piles up, even thou it basically did already.

My band, Atlas Vampire (or AtlasVampire) is obviously in need of a logo.

We are a Black/Death Metal band with some Symphonic Elements at it's core style but many of the band members write songs or contribute heavily for the project and each of us are influenced by many things that we put inside the music
Basically:
Me (anything not below): Avant-Garde Metal, Tech Death, Melodic Black, Black/Death
Drummer: Avant-Garde metal, Brutal Death Metal, Grindcore (like Insect Warfare), and stuff like Megadeth
Guitarist #1: Black metal
Guitarist #2: Black, Death, Blackened Death
Bassist: Classic Heavy metal, Death metal.

The Lyrics are basically whatever the Lyricist (me) wants and lately I've been in the mood of writing in themes: Social Commentary, Madness, Literature (LoveCraft, Poe, Tolkien, self written stories), Supernatural and History (I write short stories...)

I guess basically I'm looking for a logo in the mixed style of Arcturus's Logo on Aspera Hiems Symfonia and the Fleshgod Apocalypse logo on Oracles and Mafia. But since there are so many influences, you can have a good amount of artistic liberty and freedom on it, just as long as it still sort of legible.

I'm not looking for any religious or political Images as the band has a wide variety of religious and political views (Pagan, Roman Catholic, Satanist, Super Coversative, Liberal ect) so we take no stance as a band

Name: Revista.

Genre: Stoner Rock/metal alternative

Lyrics: Death, Drug effects, NAture, Abti-humain act. Everything.

Influence: Rush, Tool, A perfect Circle, Dream theater

No cannabis, but something Trippy yet readable?

Could you do a logo for my project?

Name: Verschrikking

Genre: Occult Black Metal/Dark Ambient

Lyrics: Occultism, Suicide, Lovecraftian

Influences: Shining, Sortilegia, Mayhem (DMDS era), Burzum, some Orthodox Black Metal bands

Something really creepy, but nothing unreadable. Preferrably put some tentacles somewhere in there, but not too many.

I'm in a Prog/Doom/Sludge/whatever band named The Herald Child and we are interested in the "stoner" kind of logos. Something groovy and psychedelic. I like pointy and curvy logos, so either one would be fine as long as it's interesting to stare at.

Keep in mind, the band's abbreviation is "THC" so anything psychedelic drug-related would fit.

Thanks!

Hey man! I'd love you to do a logo for my band Lightning. We're like an 80's Heavy/Speed Thrash band and I'd love something kind of chrome-ish. If that makes sense. Something along the lines of Air Raid (http://www.facebook.com/AirRaidOfficial ... 2405167945) or Spinal Tap (http://www.roblox.com/Spinal-Tap-Logo-item?id=17967661). But I'd definitely like you to put your own spin on it. The only thing I definitely want is the shiny, "jumping out at you" chrome color. Would also be cool if you could somehow incorporate a lightning bolt into it, but I leave it all in your hands dude!

Asininity

I'd like it to be symmetrical or near symmetrical, and I'd also like it to be resemblant (in the style) of Xasthur's logo. As a plus, it'd be nice if it looked kind of 'flowing' like on the FB page below, if that's possible. Like, organic.

Hollow is a black metal band in the vein of Mayhem, Abruptum, and Bathory with some Death and Thrash metal influences such as Slayer, Morbid, Necrophagia, and Megadeath.

The lyrics represent anything I feel like from having sex with a dead girl, to volcanic ash, to being buried alive, and everything dark and disgusting in between.

I'd design the logo but at the moment I'm busy with other art projects. So if you could make us something similar to Mayhem, old school Abruptum, Slipknot, and Darkthrone, we'd be very grateful.

Seeing as how my band's logo was created by a former member's girlfriend that we're not on the best of terms with, I'd say Psychic Faith is due for a change. I'll probably see if I can figure something out myself but I'm curious to see what you could come up with. Our images and music (Mostly traditional/doom metal with some goth and blues influences) can be found on my signature.

Hardråde

Pagan Thrash with some black metal influences

Kinda in the vein of Bifrost and Sabbat (UK) sound wise.

The logo should look thrashy with a hint of norse pagan elements? Sorry its not much to go on.

Band: Soul Harvest
Genre: Death Metal
Lyrical Theme: N/A (instrumental)
Influences: Blood Red Throne, Aborted, Skinless

I want something kinda in the vein of the Earache Records logo, and by extension The Crown's logo on Possessed 13. Red with black outline or black with white outline.

I'd also like the word Sintrinsic in something like Callenish Circle's font, if that's not too much trouble. White or dull yellow, please.

Thanks in advance.

Pennanggalan could use a logo, if you're not too busy.

We're not really set on any particular style of logo, although we don't want a completely illegible uber-br00tal logo. Based on the other logos you've made, doesn't look like that's going to be a problem.

By the way, here's what a Pennanggalan actually is, which might help your design process:

He hasn't been on since he last edited his post so, I assume he is making logos.
Or he's a serial bomber and was recently apprehended by police.
