When I saw the above graphic, featuring a collection of black and death metal band logos, I immediately recalled my reaction every time I open a package of promo CDs from Earache, and chagrin to myself over how impossibly difficult it is to even decipher the name of the band. Hilariously enough, Viceland.com discusses this very phenomena in an interview with Christophe Szpajdel, a 37-year-old Belgian artist living in the UK. During the last 20 years, Szpajdel has designed more than 7,000 logos, mostly for black and death metal bands from all over the world, including Emperor, Moonspell, Nachtmystium and Enthroned. Nearly as entertaining as the interview itself are the passionately dimwitted comments from readers. Enjoy!
