I can't decide whether this one is bad or good, but it made me laugh out loud when I first saw it:

Estate - Fantasia


Also, that panda metal album is not good, but also not as bad as the cover art might suggest.

I mean, I'm sure that was the intent, but it sure as hell doesn't look that way to me.

I like this album, but it's physically painful to look at. I think the cover gave me a seizure.

"Lame name" would be just as good a band moniker as "Secret sphere", so one cannot expect too much. Also, that album title is so not deep, or cool, or whatever.

Saw that today for a slam death band... Can't tell if it's pure genius because it fits perfectly well into the absurdity of the genre or it's just a lame, pathetic attempt at being funny with the cringiest meme ever.

That's total shit, especially not helped by the fact that the image quality is really bad but the logo is weirdly much higher in quality

I think that cloak must have too much starch in the shoulders lol. What's sad is the music and goofy title of this album might be even worse than the lousy cover art.

Image



The rear artwork is pretty awful too. I think the artist wanted those skulls to look like they were on the ground, but they look like they're floating.

Another good album with a shit cover. I also read this as "Backdoor Miracle" half the time.

Come to think of it, the ability to excrete flames is quite a miracle...the band must have attempted or at least have been aware of such an associative play on words..

I love that cover because it's like they suddenly wanted to make a gangsta rap cover but wanted to stay Satanic

Yeah, I know what you mean, but this album was released in 2000 and they had better album covers before that. A bit strange.

Okay! Your opinion.
Though I like Heresy's one, I find Product of Imagination's one awful. Looks like a fantasy version of "Load".

Okay, I'll admit, that one was confusing for me.

I remember buying the slipcase edition when it came out and being so happy I got that to cover that atrocity. I mean, the slipcase is just a white logo and a red title over a plain black background, and it looks a lot more classy.

I wish. It seems like the lyrics are really more about typical black metal topics like Satan, hell, evil, etc. Which makes you wonder why this guy feels the need to put his muscles on so many covers because it just makes the whole project seem like a joke. It actually would be more entertaining if he sang about the gym, steroids, working out, and protein lol.

On this cover he's trying to show us his softer side, but still managed to be shirtless for the photo so he can show off his muscles.
