Just always looked so goddamn cheap and hastily thrown together.

Also taking time out to nominate any dsbm album that involves someone holding a gun in their mouth.


It kinda looks like that goat head is photobombing a nice land-scape photo, as if it is throwing its arms up.

Good thing this made my afternoon, because now I can't unsee it!

I can hardly approve of defacing classic LP covers like that, but goddamn, that's hilarious :lol:

So it's okay for everyone to see a levitating pigman in Obscura, but when I see Hitler in Reign In Blood I'm crazy?

Taken from the previous FFA:

I have returned, FFA thread, for my revenge!

A while ago I claimed that within the cover of Reign In Blood is one of those optical illusions depicting a portrait of Hitler's mug. Despite the fact that this claim wasn't far fetched at all considering the lyrical content of the album (even the damn goat headed figure on the throne is heiling for crying out loud), my claim was dismissed as:

Clearly you are suffering from a classic case of False Hitler Vision. You're seeing Hitlers where there are no Hitlers.


So I, the conspiracy theorist, have returned to you with evidence. Really I could have done this on paint a while ago but only today was I bothered:

Now with that in mind, look at the original at a pretty low resolution:

I still think it's QUIIIITE the stretch. Pigman's at least a noticeable with the right subdue of shadows around the face.

That Supuration album completely puts me off from listening to it. Horrid cover.

The Superation one might just be one of the worst album covers I've ever seen.

I like that Supuration cover art. And for the music, it's the only album from their whole discography I really like.

Don't know if this one's been mentioned yet, but it certainly is dreadful:

I always found this one particularly hilarious as well. The face of the guy on the left is priceless. Still a pretty good band, though.

Descend Into the Absurd had a pretty cool cover, and then this came out. Just a lazy cover that doesn't even seem like it's from the same band.Shame though, because this album is actually really good.

I won't deny the 'serenading a panther on the edge of a cliff' bit is pretty damn metal in concept, but I think we will have to agree to disagree on this one.

It's the actual art style that does it in for me. It just looks really goofy.

While not the most offensive, it's for sure one of the less creative I've seen:

Basically, most of the cover arts ripping off Darkthrone's trilogy.

It is unfortunate that they would use such a shallow cover for an album with such profound lyrical themes.

Distorted Harmony's Utopia. Another dumb looking "deep and metaphorical" prog rock/metal artwork fitting the Dream Theater clone that they are.
