Katalepsy is a Slam Death Metal band from Moscow, Russia, formed in 2004. They just released their fourth output Autopsychosis via Unique Leader Records. I not only love the record but also their logo design.
It’s highly symmetrical, incorporates Metal Descenders, is only legible to the patient and still has a modern feel due to its thick outline. The “l” in the middle is the y-axis for the symmetry and extended in height. But what’s really interesting are the thorny outgrowths coming out of the letters. They are remindful of ice crystals in the winter – in their shape, arrangement and direction. As an experiment it might be interesting to form the Katalepsy letters out of wire and place them outdoors over winter. Let’s see how nature interprets that logo.
