Probably one of the dumbest album covers I've seen, at least before I perused this thread anyways. Party Cannon? Seriously?

Yeah, I've seen this one for a while now. The music within is actually not too bad. :)

Just found this, the background is cool enough, but the drawing of that guy is silly

Here's a couple by the band Wurdulak. Maybe not a "bad" album cover per se, but I find the idea pretty stupid. Apparently they liked it so much that they used it again for their second album.

The background is fine, it's just that silly Wolf that ruins it...

The Kovenant's Animatronic album. When I first looked at that head in the middle, I thought it was a turd.

This might be kinda cool if it was hand drawn or something, But the CGI ruins it. And this came out in 2014 so there's no excuse for it looking this bad.

Even a dead blind guy could make a better draw than that crappy wannabe-ghost thing.

The only one member of this band and that band (maybe coincidential) may have a fetish of mixing animals and humans in a realistic (?) way:

You'd be in for a treat! One of the most singular and interesting black metal bands going. I'd recommend starting with the most recent though, Firm Grip of the Roots. Incredible riffing (often leaning towards a doomed sound) and fantastic clean vocals. Great band.

Anyone familiar with this one? 666 by Angeles Del Infierno. Maybe I'm missing the point and this is supposed to be a surrealist piece, or at least that's one way of explaining why the archways are coming out of this giant head.

Here's a larger image if you want to examine it closer...

Personally I really like this album cover and would have it on a t-shirt, no worries.
The artwork has a Tankard look to it, both German bands, maybe the same artist

Sounds like generic metal you'd hear on a cartoon show / power rangers episode. Ugly to look at. Reminds me of sitting in tasteless doctor's offices with my parents in the '90s.

From their MA page:

Genre:
Melodic Death Metal/Metalcore with Trance elements


This sounds like the worst thing in the history of history.

Best part of that band pic is the guy in the back with the Dragon Ball hair looking all pouty and pissed, like the rest of the band wouldn't let him sit in front.

Also, that song sucked, but it wasn't nearly as amazingly shitty as I expected it to be. For example, it doesn't beat Make Me Famous as the most hilariously shitty popcore band ever.

Looking at the pic again, they look like the One Direction of metal. "Songs? Who cares, look at our hair!"

Nah, they aren't nearly successful (or shitty) enough to be called that. Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! is clearly the winner in that category.

Just came across this one. While the art itself isn't terrible, the subject matter leaves much to be desired. An ostrich wearing a lightning bolt vest and shooting laser beams from its eyes standing on either a very slim or hovering piece of rock while waves of lost souls are parting from the sea. Oh yes, and some evil face in the clouds reaching its hand out: "If it isn't my old nemesis the ostrich of power, curse you! You have won this battle but you will not win the war! I'll make a feather duster out of you, mark my word!"
