Great album,but it's cover-art sucks.First of all,the actual art looks like an edgy drawing some 14-year old made on their DeviantArt because they hate religion or something,and second of all,the font they used is some of the worst i have seen,seriouslly,i thought it was kanji when i fist saw it.

Phew, what a relief. So everything's fine then.


Well I wouldn't go that far. The sewer is glowing orange... that can't be good.

Criteria for a Black Widow... what a joke of an album. That cover completely captures Annihilator's dorkiness.

At least she's taking a dump into the sewer. Why do I feel like Courtney's probably done that in real life too?

Miss Love is efficient, cutting out the middleman.

If a band feels the need to incorporate a mascot, it had better be something more imposing than Annabelle dolls or that weird seal thing used by another band whose name eludes me right now.

For real though. The B in Burn looks like 日. The R in Burn looks like 兄. All the letters in 'The' look like ナ, 入, and 王 in order. The P, S, and T in Priest look like や, ち, and 木. All the rest of the letters are probably also characters I'm just not familiar with. There's almost no way that that font isn't inspired by Japanese.

This album cover from Gotsu Kotsu Totsu looks like somebody took a piece of line art from feudal japan and just used microsoft paint to color it in. In the bands defense they got it figured out for their latest albums cover art and put something out with the same style, but executed brilliantly!

So these came courtesy of the "Recent Purchases" thread. Go Christian metal!

Ugh. Bloody awful.

And this treasure.

Cerimonial Sacred

I mean the album is called Christ Worshipers, and they're doing, what? Bible class in corpse paint or something...

Adorable.

Wow, just wow, in the most negative sense. Two prime examples of people who apparently have no clue how album art works. THey both suck beyond belief (PUN INTENDED, WACKOS).

This is taken from a Facebook page where they make funny editions to popular metal (and some non-metal) album front covers. Half of them are based on Chilean memes though, but if you wanna take a look, click here

Apparently the logo features a crossed-out inverted pentagram. If only they called their music "anti-anti-Christian black metal", this would be perfect.

I know Cruentus hand-makes, and does DIY art, but at least make the font legible, the full-size cassette is too blurred to read. Let's not even get started. The only way this would be worse would be if they called it "Stig-Martyr", and featured a Sisters of Mercy cover.

Two outta three of those look pretty awesome to me. The expression on the face of the dude partying with the pandas is great.

Also, in a future in which all posers have been terminated, vast stretches of corporate America lie in ruins, while Japan (apparently) dominates the globe.
