A rip off of "Black Slabbath" by You Work For Them. Big chunky slabs. A personal favorite.

Even as a rip-off, it has a lot of originality: i like most the way some gaps between stems expand (e.g K and M) both to define the slab serif and to emphasize the gap end.
Great font!

Actually, I think it differs significantly from Kjartansson's Black Slabbath (you forgot the 'l' — note the slab pun) and it's nicely done.

@Em42 - Hmm, perhaps rip-off is a bit modest, but I that typeface provided for all the inspiration. I'm happy to see you notice the details, getting the serifs to show up in those gaps.

@Stewf Thank you! I would have never noticed the pun with "Slab." Makes it a bit more sense now.
