I really like the text in this one, especially the effect of an elegant look combined with rough edges. The overall composition is great; those small radiating lines at the upper edges add a great deal of visual interest.

I dont like the swirl in the center it doesnt fit so good i think,... but the logo is just perfect! Very nice job!

Actually you're right. It's supposed to be a galaxy, which refers to the band's name and general concept, which is one that has to do with the occult aspect of the universe rather than the scientific one. At the same time it's the dot on top of the I. Because it's the center, there is too much focus on that to just put a dot there, and it also leaves too much blank space which looks bad. I have to fill it up with something and I think a galaxy is perfect for that. It probably should be tighter though, so that it fits the rest of the logo better. Thank you for your criticism! I might do something with that.

Yes...this thing is a beast...literally - at first glance it looks like a stylized front view of some kind dragonish being, the flaring lines being gills or light radiaing from eyes, the t and r forming nostrils. Wicked, with the jagged edges it just jumps off the page, even in small form. The galactic spiral is a fine touch, and the red just makes it crackle with life. The symbols floating around add another enhancement to the mystery and movement...overall, a masterful design!

Dude this is sick. Did you create the font yourself or did you just flatten it and edit an existing font? Either way this is an incredible design.

The lettering was based on one of the band's older logos, which was made of a font I forgot the name of. I didn't like the capital letters, so I based those on the quite well known Ruritania font. The logo this was based on on request by the band was this one: [link]
Made by a very shitty artist.

Thank you for your comment! I'm quite proud of this logo. It's probably among my top ten.

Thats a crazy sweet logo man! Love all the little details and extras all around it. I'll have to employ you to make the logo for my upcoming BM project! Maybe a art exchange would do the trick? :P
