I have a thing for band logos that are very symmetrical and even more if it is a mirrored image.
I would like to find more than just this one, because they are very artistic and some are even unreadable, much like this one by Binah.

They made the B backwards, though; that's cheating.

I never noticed the symmetry in Watain's logo. Looks pretty captivating now that I think of it.

Crypted have a neat logo that reads the same when upside down.

And not to whore out my own shit, but I guess it's relevant - I had drawn up this logo for a future project of mine and I guess it's pretty symmetrical:

I don't think it really counts when the logo it totally indistinguishable. I mean, it's not hard to make a perfectly symmetrical logo if it could feasibly be read as "Death Cunt" one way or "Eternal Ass Disaster" the other - that's just a matter for form.

The cleaver logos are the ones which are true palindromes.

Not really metal (although they are signed to Metalblade records) I think Astra pulls it off quite nicely.

Great logo from a great band! Never noticed before it was perfectly symmetrical.

Personally I don't like the full symmetrical band logo's. A bit symmetrical is fine, but there have to be quite a bit of differences between both sides. For example the Megadeth logo. Symmetrical in shape, but not in characters. I love it.
