The Nonagram symbolizes the unity between the band’s members. The number of points equals the number of musicians. Slipknot explained that the nine-point star is in no way a Satan symbol, it is a symbol of the “battle with the fake world”. The first version of the Nonagram appeared around 1995, while the second one was introduced in 2014.

2014 – Today

The badge, created for the famous band in 2014, is based on the lettering, executed in a custom hand-written font with the bold black title case characters placed not in a very straight horizontal line. The bars of the letters feature uneven contours, which make them look as if they were written with a black gel pen, in many nervous strokes.

Symbol: The Gray Chapter

On the cover of the pre-release of the album 5. The Gray Chapter, the nonagram looked different from the one featured on the previous covers. It was the first time when the new color scheme including black and red was introduced. The regular cover of the 2014 album was built around a depiction of a skeleton, with the name of the band in red above, while the name of the album was given in white and placed below.


Slipknot Font

The custom font designed for the Slipknot wordmark is highly original. It gives a hint about the type of music the band plays. The typeface would fit as perfectly for the name of a horror movie.

Red, the color of blood, and black create a dark and sinister contrast.
