    Based on the typeface I would be led to believe that this is not a serious metal band, like Gwar....it's too hokey and cartoonish!
    Well beyond legible but it's a trend.

    That he is...for the most part...anyway I do agree with you Shovel...but these guys said they wanted the Blood Of Dracula font and I kinda just went with something similar to that font as I liked the flow better....but your right the font is not very metal....more goofy zombie..

    yeah i figured that's what you were going for.. reminds me of this Gwar magnet I have on my fridge that says something like "Now with more AIDS" or something.

    I like the typeface, it's campy and reminds me of Rocky Horror.
    Love....Jill

    Very nice work as usual! On a related note, when you print these shirts will you use an opaque red ink - 2 passes or will you print the red atop of a white underbase? Just curious, I am still learning silkscreening (after 2 years of messing around with it).

    We use a lot of opaque red....but most of this will have a white underbase....the opaque red is more of an orangey color than a true 185c type red....here I'm looking for a nice bright red. part of the red here is underbased except where the red turns to a burgundy color...in those spots I will print just a half tone of red right on top of the black to create the burgundy color..Just a two color print here....these local band guys have no money so it's do it as cheap and easy as possible.

    Was going to say the same thing-if you can read the logo-it's not metal! lol
