Necrocock

Necrocock in a Czech death metal group formed in 1992 that revels in perversity, burials and cremations. For some reason, unknown to the author, necrocock is also a tag word in typeface classification used to describe legible sans (or oddly serifed) typefaces that are a bit bumpy or shifty, as if spooked by glyph ghosts. Examples include Hubert Jocham's Versa Sans and Verse Serif, Vlad Viperov's Markofontina (2014), Richard Yeend's Burgstaedt Antiqua, ITC Biblon, Monotype's Buccardi, Tipotype's Sedan, and a large portion of Frantisek Storm's typefaces, who as a death metal activist himself, must be considered as the main representative of this genre. Storm's typefaces in this style include Academica, AndulkaSans, AnselmSans, AnselmSerif, DynaGrotesk-2014, Farao, Hercules, JannonSans, JohnSans, LexonGothic, Mediaeval, SebastianPro, and Serapion.
