For this project, I designed a typographic treatment for a song of my choice. I explored heavy metal since it is something I don't normally listen to. I completed this project in Typographic Practice taught by Elizabeth Mandel.
Through my research, I found that a lot of metal groups are quite religious. This discovery surprised me—when you think of metal, you don't think of Christianity. Living Sacrifice is a band that was one of the first metal groups to define the "Heavenly Metal" genre. I chose their song "Reborn Empowered" because the lyrics feel like they could have come from a Baptist songbook. This Hymnal of Heavenly Metal plays off of the unusual nature of the genre.
