Christophe Szpajdel’s metal logos

Chances are, if you’re into metal at all, you’ve seen some of Christophe Szpajdel’s work. The Belgian forestry engineer has designed some of the genre’s most recognizable logos – Emperor, Borknagar, Old Man’s Child, and Enthroned among many others. A recent Vice Magazine spread elicited some pretty ignorant responses deriding his designs as unreadable. What the uninitiated fail to comprehend, however, is that heavy metal logos say everything one needs to know about a band (whether they’re thrash, death, black, or grindcore, and whether they’re Satanic, pagan, punk influenced, neo-Nazi, or humor-driven), and sometimes illegibility is the whole point.
