Metal and rock bands heavily shook the music industry in the 70s when majority of the more well-known bands now entered the scene. What rock music aficionado doesn’t know Kiss, Anthrax, AC/DC and Aerosmith? These rock stars dominated the stage and left a legacy of enduring awesomeness that one cannot help but compare them to the newbies. However, not all bands that emerged during that decade enjoyed the massive popularity of other commercial bands. There were some who played rockin’ music, but remained a bit off-center, never really in the limelight.

One of the bands which enjoyed a cult following but never made it really big internationally is Angel. Known for their bizarre habit of wearing all-white during gigs, the band’s members were the extreme opposite of Kiss’ band members, who all wear black. Coincidentally, it was Kiss’ bassist, Gene Simmons, who discovered the group and signed them up under the same record label, Casablanca. Angel was famous for their glam rock and heavy metal music and appeared in the film “Foxes” and vocalist Frank DiMino sang one song in the Flashdance soundtrack.
Aside perhaps from their costume preference, one thing that made people remember Angel is their cool band logo which is an ambigram penned by Robert Petrick. An ambigram is an artistic way of writing wherein the words read and look the same even if viewed from a different direction or orientation. Angel’s logo, in other words, look exactly the same even if turned upside down. Is it amazing or amazing?
The band could’ve milked their logo’s worth by printing countless merchandise for their followers but they remained as inconspicuous as ever. Still, that doesn’t change the fact that their logo is one of those which will forever be hailed as unique and original.
