I fucking love everything about that, from the art done by the dude's 4-year-old niece, to the cameo by Disturbed's mascot and his 7 brothers, to ESPECIALLY the name. Shadow Puncher? Fuck yes!

I've just laughed at the Seth Putnam-esque artwork. By no means do I need to check out their music.

The weird thing about that is the latest album looks like a legit album cover.

The J.J.'s Powerhouse album cover is truly wonderful. Deep Purple must be so proud to have their legacy honored.

Indeed. Also the whole thing is beautiful: the band is active since 1977, relases only one album after 26 years and comes up with this album cover. Great!

I've never heard of this band before but Ski was the vocalist on this record and he's a legend imo but this cover is so cringe.

I think the bear in the top right corner (who by the way is as tall as a tree) expresses that thoroughly.

I think the record here was a band from the 60's and then one album in the 2000's?

This is actually a Christian BM band too. That's anti-Catholic. Wait what

Never said it was good. I ain't picky, it's what's on the inside that counts. :p

Everything about that cover is fucking awesome. The awkward phrasing of the title is great. And the name of the band is priceless...

Agreed. The only complaint I could give is that the band logo is a bit awkwardly placed here.

King of the Kill is passable (just don't look at it too long) and Refresh the Demon is good (one has to admit, that demon does look refreshed). The rest are shamefully awful.

My only gripe is that the axe-wielding arm looks to be motionless but is clearly meant to be slicing through that skeleton's neck. Also, the band logo is too sharp. It would fit better were it hand-drawn.

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