The Metalista font was created as a sign of undying admiration of the persistency of metal culture. The angled font of almost fixed width proportions combines capitals with small letters for more variety and better definition of individual letters. Increasing the emphasis on horizontal strokes de-emphasised the historical Gothic character to the advantage of a more modern signature, by far different to the majority of current attempts at a modern adaptation of angled alphabets. The character set contains an above average number of glyphs - besides numbers and letters of the alphabet, basic fractions, index numbers, arrows and a mathematic set are also included.

As a matter of course, high quality diacritics for over forty languages are included. You can be certain that the black metallishly dark typeface will, in larger quantities, consume more than its fair share of cans of printing ink, and that its razor sharp characters will cut holes in all thinner papers. Metalista is a surprisingly refreshing solution not only for rock album covers and T-shirts of balding Anthrax fans, but also typographic logotypes or axonometric video game graphics. Best of all, it’s free.
