The problem with Black Water

This is an imaginary LP cover made up & designed by me for my good friend Ric.

First the imaginary band.
Black Water's debut LP 'Winter Sun' What do they sound like? Well, I think they're heavy minimal metal with all male acapella moments.

Now the font.
The top font is a 20 Line (just over 3 inches) German Blackletter font. Designed in 1939, 'Element' was part of a family of minimal blackletter fonts collectively known as 'Jackboot' fonts. Sounds shocking. It was later banded in 1943 by the Nazi party for looking 'to Jewish'. What a history... Surely the most 'loaded' font I have.
