New Gorgasm Logo

What do you think about it?





I don't like it as I really prefer the old one. I didn't order the new shirts cause it has the new logo.

Old logo > new logo

The music on the new CD will dominate as always though!

Their blood-sprayey logo will always be the coolest. New one looks like a deathcore band's.

it's better than the old one for sure, but I think they could have done a lot better and got one that was just as brutal & sick as the music / lyrics.

Plenty of people out there that can do awesome jobs for nominal fees, like Paul Slagle, Zig or god knows who else.


Looks a bit too much like a skate/extreme sports logo the newer one for my taste.

but hell, it's the band's choice so fuck it.

to be fair, on it's own i'm not too keen on the new logo much at all, but on the new Majewski-pwned shirts or at least the one below it seems to pull off pretty fucking well...



if they got a sicker logo on there, it'd be sheer awesomenity.

They must be sick of people bashing everything they do. First Kunt Killer and now this hah. But still, changing the logo was completely unnecessary. They could've at least gotten some more professional looking logo.

well they're a good enough band to reach enough people that there'll be conflicting opinions on things, plus I'm sure they're big enough to be not only able to accept other people's views but open to them too.

IE, plenty of people slagged off 'kuntkiller' as a title, so the band thought about it and improved the title to one of the tracks instead making the new album's title the much better "Destined To Violate".

sounds almost like a prequel hah

as for logo artists: there are plenty of talented people doing logos for free. Zigs logos, for example are totally overused in my opinion. they are all very similar.

unless it was your grammar being misleading there, Zig's never been free.

Zig's logos are fucking great. Some of the best out there.
I think they're used so much because they're so iconic in themselves and also iconic of brutal death itself.

Look at the Sect Of Execration logo and try tellin me that's not a sick logo.

yeah, that was misleading. I meant zigs logos are overused while other artists would do it for free.
I don't know whats iconic about a logo that looks exactly like a few others do. I'm not saying Zigs logos are bad, never, but hes getting repetitive.

fair enough man.

there is still something great about a Zig logo done at his best that just makes them stand out head and shoulders above so many others.

there are people out there doing them for free yes, but 99.999% of the time they're doing them for free because no-one would pay them for what they can produce anyway.

There's plenty of capable cheaper artists than Zig too that can do awesome logos and not just in one distinct style/look like so many logo designers seem to get stuck in the rut of only being able to do one shape/stylistic.

I do logos for free and I wouldn't say my logos are too bad to get paid for. and I'm not the only one, you just ahev to take a look for it. but yeah, to pay a well known artist is probably the easiest way to get a decent looking logo, plus the effect of people listeing to your music because this one artist made it.

the chances are though, unless you have amazing underground connections and hidden gems, you'll have to go for someone that could charge around $70-$100 for a sick-ass logo that at least 90% of people will love, as opposed to going with someone new to you willing to do it for free who'll probably not do anywhere near as great a job.

9/10 you get what you pay for... although some people do overcharge for logos IMO.

surt, your wrong. believe it or not, but there are killer artists out there doing a very, very well job for free. and yeah, conventional logos get accepted by pretty much everyone. but I'd rather look for something outstanding. things ain't as complicated as you seem to think

I'm wrong because I disagree with you?
nice logic.

Show me one example of an internationally known band using free artwork on a non-demo release (that wasn't provided by an existing band member).

I'm not debating that there's people out there that do it for free, the fact is the majority of signed bands out there opt for someone who charges a fee - however nominal - because they generally produce better work than those who charge nothing at all.

Hell, can you even name me one artist who's worked with an internationally known DM band for free who wasn't already closely related to the band ie either through friendship or ex-membership or something.


Don't bitch at me just cause the fact is the vast majority of instantly impressive artists out there with mass appeal (ie not just appealing to a select small group of people but to most who see the image) actually have the common sense and frugality to charge people for their time, effort and creativity.


Or did you think people that work for free do so cause they can afford to spend practically all their spare time and effort to bang out 300dpi hi-res print-format proofs for absolutely nothing back?

who the hell was making things "complicated"? I sure as fuck wasn't.
I was stating the prety common knowledge that bands out there that pay for artists generally at least 8 or 9 times out of 10 get far better end results and packages than those that either refuse to pay for it or get a stranger in to do it for free.

Unless you have a member proficient with Photoshop or a really good friend good at it, the majority of bands will pay for artwork because it guarantees them a higher threshold of quality than someone unknown to them who won't charge them anything.

Not so complicated.

wow, thats a lot hot air for nothing. i don't know which international bands using a logo they got for free and which not. i actually don't even care. I just said that there are people around that do it for free and are good at wwhat they do. even tho you can't understand it but some people do it as a form of support. where do you actually know that the majority of known bands paid for their logo? most of the bands I know personally got their logo for free since they started as a unknown band ,just like 99% of the signed band and couldn't or didn't want to afford a "professional" logo,
I know, the world is full of capitalistic bitches but there are still a few supportive people around and some of them are even talented.
