Deaf Metal I can't hear you over the music
Yet another font I created for the BASIN package around 2006 that wasn’t so much designed as burst forth as metal music should.
The glyphs are overly bold, angular, and overtly aggressive. I revised a few of them since the 2006 release to fix some height issues with some of the lower-case letters.
The final result works better for large runs of text than you’d expect given the style but it works best used sparingly.
In 2020 I added a new attempt at the style. It’s an interesting different take using small caps for lower-case and is actually based on the square version which was itself an attempt at Soviet poster typography.
Can be seen in HELL YEAH!.
