    +1. If you want to find fonts, google them or check out websites that have them..

    dafont.com
    1001 Free Fonts - Download Free Fonts for Windows and Macintosh

    To install them, put the font file(s) in C:\Windows\Fonts

    If you're asking what the font of an individual one is, you're probably out of luck.

    Other than that, I really don't know what to tell you.

    It's not a certain style of "writing" as all logos and their artists are different. Just google for death metal logo or black metal logo and you'll find a load of them.
    Often bands state their logo artist in their booklets or on Metal-Archives so it wouldn't be too hard to find some of the artists. Some of the most notable ones are Christophe Szpajdel, Mark Riddick, Chris Moyen...

    Calligraphy? It's not called "heavy metal writing". You're putting too much thought into something that's simple, lol.

    Not really. Take a look at the logo pic you posted - all of them look pretty different, it's not a specific style except for that most of them look pointy and evil :)

    As mentioned calligraphy is about as close to a name for it although this is focues more on classic styles of writing, otherwise it is just the word drawn in a stylized way.

    I.e. designed using pen and paper rather than picking a font out on a pc.

    you're right. that's interesting. i don't think there is a name for that. people have always just called it "brutal".

    we should try to coin a term for it. how about "necrography" or something. ha.

    Coining terms for things related to music if fun.

    But yes, its just calligraphy. You pay some guy to make you a logo, or you make it. You don't download "heavy metal font" and type in your name and its done.
