The alternate ACÉPHALE logo depicts a cruzified serpent. This image derives from alchemy, where it describes the chemical process of rendering mercury into its solid and stable form by removing its poisonous element: FIXING THE VOLATILE.

In a rather scholastic reading we transfer this image to our own social and psychological reality as we reinterpret this process as cutting the toxic people out of our lives: Our slogan reads DEATH TO THE SNAKE and reminds us of the necessity of removing the volatile and poisonous elements from our inner circle, corresponding to the old saying that snitches get stitches.
