How to make extreme metal logo electronically

So, you got a new band and you need a logo.
You could be old school and draw one on paper or use your pirated software and finally put it to some use. Follow these simple how-to steps: (I'm using Adobe Illustrator, but you could use just about anything else, experiment in Word if you'd like)

1. Make a new document and type the name of your band. 

2. Change the font to something metal like Old English.

 3. Under > Filter, choose > Distort & Transform > Pucker & Bloat...

 4. Be sure to move the slider to the left (negative value), otherwise you may get an undesirable effect.

 5. If you can still recognize words in your logo, choose > Distort & Transform > Roughen...

 6. Adjust setting to your preference.

 7. Reverse background colour and text to make it more metal and that's it, your logo is ready.

 Stay tuned for next lesson, in which we will be making an album cover using your new logo.
