Blackened Logo, Before and After

About: (Est. 2012) Blackened is the new record label established by Metallica, after purchasing the rights of all their existing work from Warner Music Group, to serve as “the home of all of [their] current albums and videos along with all future releases.”

Design by: N/A.

Ed.’s Notes: “Blackened” comes from the first song in Metallica’s fourth album …And Justice for All. I wish the stick of the flag and circle were less “perfect”.

Relevant links: Metallica blog post..

Thanks to Henric Sjösten for the tip.
