We've all seen an album cover where the band has a simply kick-arse font/logo whathaveyou. For some, it might be what first made us pick up their album, if the cover art hadn't already But what's your favorite? Which album cover/band has the best font or logo for their name? And, if font, can you find the font in question? (Optional task)

My favourite to this day is Black Sabbath's from their debut album.

Manuscript Capitals simply kicks ass when used over a gothic background. (Which Electric Wizard capitalized on- http://www.dafont.com/manuscript-caps.f ... ric+Wizard
You say "Justin Bieber", I say... OK. So?

Don't take this the wrong way dude, but your topics really suck. Stop making them.

The debut font is pretty cool, but I'd also like to see the 'Master of Reality' font.

Cancer's logo, which I'm pretty sure is a font too, is also a nice one.

ive seen so many metal bands use this font its getting silly, but ironically i cant think of any of their names at the moment.
everything is sexist, everything is racist, everything is homophobic and you have to point it all out
