7.3/10 - I really like the effects on the banner, but I'm not entirely sure the transparent bits work, especially on the right side. The text could match it better and the amount of it seems out of wack with the banner. They should balance together.
Uhm, sprites usually doesn't come out good when put in a banner, and it has been done rather messy. Just put a bunch of picture and sprite together. The text would be better formatted, and the sig should stick to one theme 3/10
Oh, and MKFC, my step-brother sings for one of those bands that you despise, and I love him.
