Awesome Album Art

Postby Zupponn » Thu Nov 14, 2013 2:06 pm

Well, this spawned from me jokingly looking up Stryper on Youtube and finding out that they released a brand new album just last month. When I looked at the album art, I thought it looked pretty badass:

Image
Stryper - No More Hell To Pay

Then I started thinking of other album art that looks pretty badass as well:

Image
The Faceless - Planetary Duality

Image
Powerglove - Metal Kombat For the Mortal Man

Image
Mastodon - Leviathan

Image
Austrian Death Machine - Total Brutal

Image
Lazarus AD - The Onslaught

Image
Conquest - Frozen Sky

I'm sure there are many more, so go ahead, lets see what we can come up with.

No offense Sam, but most of those are lame/generic.

Because it's awesome. I'm mainly referring to the Kiss album covers, they're pretty uninteresting.

I'll give Sam the Megadeth, Motorhead, Judas Priest, and the Metal Church ones, so 4/13 or about 30% success rate.

Conquest I wouldn't have found without you mentioning them. Lazarus AD is from Milwaukee though.

My friend has been listening to a lot of Nile recently. We both find them pretty hilarious.

Oh, and this album art is somehow worse than Sam's (although most of his album covers are lacking metal or originality):

Iron Maiden - Dance of Death.

Glad to hear that. Lazarus AD stand has my current favorite thrash metal band from the new wave scene. Can't wait to see them live.

Nile is pretty ridiculous most times, but I think they still manage to pull out the brutality pretty well. Highly depends on the album at hand, IMO.
