I just realised it doesn't show very large. I'll get some bigger versions. The 'M' is a \m/ but it looks like blades and it's an M :-)

Also I wanna get us to be able to compete with the likes of Metal Injection and Blabbermouth. So we need to get sophisticated!

The current one screams metal because it is derivative of Maiden, so I definitely support a change. The lettering in the logo above is blocky and practical so the thing comes off as a forum for some kind of industrial metal workers, and not about music. I like the concept of the \m/ very much, but maybe you should go all the way and slant the slashes so it reads like ASCII. 

 

I'm down with a red horns up, but the grey on white does not say MF to me, What says MF to me is white letters on a black background.

 

The lettering below is too old fashion for your crowd and will not appeal to the death metal set, but I would dig it. I like the beveled edges and rivets. I'd give every letter rivets and make them look like bright silver letters on a black velvet background, but I'm old school.

Thanks, guys, I'm glad you dig it. I'm curious to see what dilatedmind thinks. I'll do a weathered version for you, Gorbo - I suspect that the cleanest version will read the best when it's really small, but it would be dope to pimp it out a bit and get some shirts made... group order?

I'd nearly say yes to a shirt but then I get all the Irish metal heads joining here instead of my own forum and that's not good lol

Maybe we can make you a special black-on-black version that nobody can really make out? 

And, I mean, you could hire me to do a badass logo for your website too... :D What's it called, anyway?

I would be game. Our buddy Cody Drasser was supposed to do the same for my other forum, but he's been MIA for some time and we haven't heard any more about it.

It's called fires of hell 666. Haven't got a bad logo I don't think. It's very quiet there at the moment though. Only up and running for about a week... 

Right on. Good luck with it, hopefully you can get some solid regulars, and get good conversations going. It gets slow around here sometimes, it's been nice having you and Novembrine around to share your thoughts.

Yeah dude, apparently Cody is starting nursing school and just finished recording the new Afterbirth album, so I'm not surprised. He's hardly even on Facebook. In any case I would be happy to help get some shirts made for MF, and I may know a guy locally who can do short runs if we need that.

It should pick up after xmas when we start putting gig pictures up. Or maybe it's just wishful thinking and I'm wasting my time lol. Either way I'm not going anywhere, I like it here. And thanks, I don't get told often that it's nice to have me around. You'll soon change your mind when you find out how impossible I can be. ;)

T-shirts are a great idea though, what price range would they be?

    • Black metal is the snow-covered forest at sunset; the full moon glimpsed through jagged trees; the candle that flickers in ghost winds; the indelible emptiness of the lonely human soul that cries out to empty skies.

    • I’ve been watching a bunch of nature documentaries recently. Dangerous animals only, for the most part, because I refuse to devote an hour of my life watching turtles mosey around the deep blue. Additionally, I’ve sought out very in-depth material so I can appreciate the animal being analyzed. As a result I’ve been able to watch a decent amount of material closely scrutinizing the habits of predators, and that’s given me a particularly good context for understanding Sadist’s 2015 album “Hyena”.

      This album is intended to track the habits of a hyena. Seems a bit on the nose, but bear with me; the album’s style is important. The album takes the listener on a markedly violent safari in an open-top jeep. Feel the wind in your hair, enjoy the natural splendor of the savannah, watch some animals murder and/or eat each other. Bring along some Mango Jive but for goodness sake leave your droewors back at the hut. Musically, as far as the metal goes – it’s a technical death/thrash album with the ferocity of the latter and the substance of the former. The vocals are higher-pitched snarls, characteristic of Sadist and perfect for the concept; in fact the entire production isolates the smooth bass to allow for moodier lines from said instrument.

      I’ve always noticed that in the grand sweep of folk metal African music usually gets left out. Makes some sense – I’ve heard quite a lot of traditional African music and it’s way too happy and tropical. Then again, Dan Swano, Skindred and even Equilibrium have managed to make Caribbean music work in metal, so it’s not impossible. The next best thing is something thematically evocative, which is what “Hyena” represents. It’s not perfect; Sadist could have paced out the textures better and deepened the nature sounds, perhaps taking influence from the largely untouchable Russo-Finnish metal masters Second To Sun. That being said, it’s a one-of-a-kind work and Sadist deserves credit for taking their vicious brand of tech-death on a sun-bleached adventure into the wild.

    • After listening to both albums, I am having difficulty deciding which I think is better.  Both have excellent songs and guitar work, and express the atmosphere of Burzum extremely.  Personally, however, I think that the vocals are delivered better on Filosofem.  Filosofem also has more songs, but the 25 minute synth track is not as good as Tomhet.  What do you all think?

    • Post photos of your various collections here! 

      Here are three shots of my black metal collection. The first is the whole thing, but i've also included two closer shots that should be clearer when zooming in etc.

    • On BM scene there are also good worth of attention female vocalists. Some of my fav bands.

      1 Astarte - All female black metal band from Greece. In my opinion Tristessa is one of the best female growler.

      2 Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult - Onielar and her growls and style are something amazing. Nothing more nothing less. 

      3 Gedanken Toten Lebens - Interesting one-woman atmospheric black metal project. Lyrics are about naure, death and philosophy. 

      Who is your favourite black metal female vocalist? Do you like these bands? Or maybe you think black metal isn't for women? Let's start the discussion!
