    Framed with skulls, the giant Wacken logo made of steel welcomes the visitors at the festival venue.
    And yes, of course the kerning is wack.

    Wacken Open Air (W:O:A) is the world’s largest heavy metal music festival. The logo with the chunky wedge serifs is set in Latin. It is not quite clear whether it is a squooshed Latin Wide or whether they used CastleType’s Latin CT Not Wide. The Wacken folks certainly weren’t shy about squeezing type until it fits.
