Amazing art for an amazing album.

That one wins because it depicts something so real. Makes me think of post-WWII expulsions and all the families left without fathers/husbands.

drudkh - blood in our wells

from the way i interpret this painting, it is the widow of a farmer and their children (and dog). her head is hanging in sorrow, not only because of the death of her husband, but also because of the hardships that lie ahead. how will she feed the family and herself? a bleak future lies ahead...

I loved that cover too, but I never found it depressing, more scary if anything to me.

Always seemed kind of cold and dark, it fits with the music. The music is also depressing in some parts.


I never find good music depressing. This album, one of the great ones, evokes feelings of melancholy, which is a word that wouldn't be unfitting when describing Franz Schubert's "Tragic" symphony. There is a great beauty in that darkness.

Does anyone know any album covers that genuinely scare people?

For example, the one for Opeth - Deliverance where everyone shit themselves after seeing the face in the mirror. :P
