New logo - Opinions?



They are selling this shirt here
http://www.bandstores.co.uk/shop/kat...tonia_templeTS

According to the website, they'll be using this logo a lot more in the future.

What is everyone's opinion of it? Personally I think it kinda sucks. I mean it just does nothing for me, it looks a little better than a design I would see at Walmart.

I am not a big fan of this new Katatonia logo that they are showing on these new t-shirts. I much prefer their 2nd and even basic 3rd band logos (but I hated the 1st logo...it was way too "busy" looking and the pentagram didn't help any). Although as long as the new music is anywhere near the level of quality as TGCD and NITND were, then the logo switch would be an extremely petty/minor gripe on my part.

I don't like the band logo all that much but i dig the rest of the shirt even though it kinda looks like a bootleg.

The site says "Born From Nothing" Limited Edition t-shirts...I wonder if that has anything to do with the new album title?

Dislike heartily. Want the classic crumbling logo back.

The new logo reminds me of those Russian flexi disc bootlegs. Didn't they have a similar looking logo? Needless to say, I am not fond of the logo and hope the band will save it for (very) limited shirts.

Uhm no, thanks.

More or less liked all the logos so far; also find the current "simple font" logo very appropriate... but with this one now I feel trolled! D:

Uh, I really do not like it. Does not fit Katatonia at all. The one on TD and LFDGD was the best. I hope they do not use this one, it really sucks...

It has a nice Art Noveau or sth kinda vibe, bit like Alcest, but really does NOT feel katatonia to me.

I like it enough but it completely lacks in comparison to their last logo. They only used the Future font logo for 2 lps, use it once more. Simple is good. This is a bit overdone.

Born from Nothing would make an excellent title or at least a great track title.

+1
I don't think it is new logo, just limited edition crap. Second logo was REALLY great and it was in harmony with the music.


I think it should be on Brave Murder Day and Sounds of Decay instead that pentagram.

From Katatonia's facebook page:

"Did you see the the new three crowned Katatonia temple shirts yet?

Note, this new logo will not entirely replace the current logo (which btw is just a font), but it will be co-used in different areas, just as the logo before the font was and still is.

So, if you don't like it, you have the option not to buy the shirt and if you like it, you have the option to buy the shirt.
etc etc etc"

I like it a lot! Seems more 'alternative rock' than metal, perhaps a reflection of a possible new musical style of the band?

The shirt is quite expensive, though.
