Background

Abaddon is a font designed by Dave Nalle of Scriptorium Fonts, inspired by the poster lettering of Art Nouveau artist Alphons Mucha.

Abaddon has some characteristics of gothic lettering, with pointed demi-serifs and extended, very pointy descenders. It has been a very popular and widely used font for rock bands, tattoo artists and many in the goth culture. It is featured in the logo of the band Godsmack as well as in the titles of the movie Necromancer.
