It's fair to say that heavy metal logos have a certain aesthetic. Generally, they're a veritable smorgasbord of tattoo-ready spikes and gothic typography – the harder to read, the better. We say generally, because occasionally a band bucks the trend. But none have bucked it quite as heavily (no pun intended) as Party Cannon.

The "brutal death metal" band from Dunfermline, Scotland, seems to have turned to children's birthday party invitations for logo design inspiration. And when placed alongside dozens of other, more traditional metal band logos, it stands out brilliantly – and somehow manages to look even edgier than the rest.
