I thought I might use the new bricks to create an update of Black Metal. The result, however, was more like a steampunk thingy but more organic...

I love your specimen! I'm sure Black Organic will end up being used in a band logo or three. :-)

Impressive use of modularity, much more beautiful than your font "Black Metal" from where it comes.

Echoing SquarePeg… goth kids everywhere are rejoicing. I REALLY don't want to like this, but MAN, it is beautiful and extremely well-realized. Consistent, elegant, and, dare I say?... "fresh" looking. Another feather in your FS cap. 10/10

Thanks everybody!

Far from being a goth or metalist myself, I am still fascinated by the aesthetics in those kind of blackletter typefaces. After all, they are the oldest print typefaces and they have a history.

I started out imitating Aeronaut - which you can still see in the u and n - but after a while it became more and more gothic and I had a hard time not to imagine the names of Norwegian black metal bands set in this... That's why I called it Black Organic...

Maybe I can come up with a friendlier, more flowery, ornamental version called Green Organic or so.

this is beautiful :o
But 9.99/10 (10/10) because the T looks a bit out of place... Congratulations for the Top Pick! :D

I can see where Umbreon is comig from. The T is a bit deep but with a few adjustments it should be fine. Keep going with it!

Very good! But e looks like it's missing something at the bottom.

Thanks for you comments.

Both the T and the e are purposely created this way. As I said, I had the band logos of black metal bands in mind, although I'm not into the genre at all. But the somewhat doomed T and the e missing a lower jaw seemed to be quite fitting.

I will turn to happier typefaces in the near future, though...

love the E W X and M.

not sure how helpful the roman numerals are in the long run.
