new on here so be nice please! :)
I need help identifying the font on the following album cover please ... http://f0.bcbits.com/z/10/53/1053254623-1.jpg
Any help to point me in the right direction is always welcome!
I think this has been posted here before for an ID, not sure if it was successful then. I presume it is the band name you’re looking to have identified? I strongly suspect that it’s simple customisation, with certain elements added and deleted from the original glyphs.
Yes, sorry. It is the band name font. I think I have found it after numerous hours of looking!
It looks like this font - http://www.dafont.com/futurist-fixed.font?fpp=50&text=ALVAREZ+KINGS
But like you say, with customisation.

Unfortunately, don't know this one. As usual, looks like it has been started from Futura. Some suggestions: Diamonds, Evolette A, Lightyears, many ones at TenDollarFonts (TWOFACED, Echelon, Rathe, Parqa, Fonecian, Finding 57, Harf 77, Labieno, Positano, Marina, Alumia...)

Thanks for the responses guys, much appreciated.
I don’t think that Futurist was the starting point (or Futura, at least directly); other than the obvious difference of the |S| I doubt anyone making these sorts of customisations would modify the |K| in this way.
So do you think Futurist Fixed-Width was designed from scratch?
