Kanye West accused of copying metal band's logo

A U.S. metal band has accused Kanye West of stealing its logo.

Christian Mistress' bandmates claim they created the artwork, based on an ancient religious figure, in 2008 - and were shocked when they spotted the same logo used to promote the rapper's new single All Day.


Christian Mistress singer Christine Davis tells the Village Voice, "We were very surprised and disappointed. We were worried that our artistic freedom was being taken away from us in just a moment."


Davis and her bandmates are concerned that West's fans will think they've ripped off the rapper's art, when they see their logo.


She says, "He’s using it on iTunes and on places where we also sell our music."
