That last one is indeed awesome. Gonna have to check out that band. That's how good that cover is.

Found some new gems, fellas. Enjoy:

1. Osian - The Slow Fade of Loving Things

I'm so confused. What does this... uh... creature have for its head?

Image

2. Kakoranger - Kakoranger Corps

Even the kitten is happy for these guys! It says that they play experimental progressive metal, does that surprise any of you?

Image

3. Dead by Dawn - Life Is a Death Sentence

Honestly, it looks like something I would've drawn in sixth grade.

Image

4. Iron Kingdom - Curse of the Voodoo Queen

Spoiler for titties. Also, her expression isn't that of a curse, more of an intense boredom.

Spoiler: show
Image


5. Ninja Hatorry - Ninja Hatorry

No comment.

Image

And the last one...

6. Morante - Danza al viento

Spoiler for vaguely sexual theme. Is it just me or does the girl look like a Bratz doll who overdosed?

Spoiler: show

I'm sure this isn't bad grind, and the cover isn't that bad, but that logo.....oh jeez

I apologize if this has been posted before. Stupid name for an album, even worse cover art....

This is actually a homage to old propaganda posters, and as such I think it is quite good a cover.

My pick would be this one, a nice excuse to pose naked for the camera.

Amazing someone picked a Mortification album. How do you pick? You could post the entire discography and each one is worse than all the others. That band is so consistently terrible for so many years in so many ways, Sloth would need at least another 6,000 singles to catch up.

Acheron's Chaos looks like ancient Greek art, it's actually alright.

Humaniac's is silly as fuck and not that bad though the gore looks kinda subpar compared to the rest IMO.

Yeah, I wouldn't have mentioned Acheron's Chaos had it not been for that incongrous logo.

So let's see here. Terrible forearms. OK bicep, good tricep development. Excellent lats. Well-defined obliques. Phenomenal quads, but piss poor hamstrings. No ass. This guy spends his time at the gym exclusively doing lat pulldowns and leg extensions. I recommend squats and more variety in his workout.

The cover to Unpop by Pyogenesis is just baffling.

Image

In what universe did these people think this would be a good thing to put on the cover of their album?

Holy shit! Mind blown. I didn't even notice that. Wow.
I think the worst part of it, by FAR, is the band logo though. Oh my god. Every conceivable property a band logo graphic can have is inexplicably done terribly there. A miserable failure and eyesore. It isn't even legible.

And to add the cherry to the top of the poop sundae that is that Dark Sarah cover, their music is also really bad too.

Oh christ, that's actually the name of the band? I was certain I was still misreading their horrid band logo because Dark Sarah just sounded dumb as fuck.

It's not bad for what it is, even if what it is is catchy inoffensive pop rock for middle aged goth women. Know your demographic and shoot for the jugular.

I thought it was "sanah"; didn't even notice the "r" is supposed to be the same for both words until now...

So this is a Japanese band called Undead Corporation. They have way too many albums, but these two are literally direct ripoffs of classic In Flames album arts:

Just stumbled on this bad boy. The music is actually pretty decent but I'm not going to buy it based on the cover art alone.

You act like they're trying to pull a fast one here but those covers are very clearly meant to pay tribute to the originals, not rip them off.

Obviously the execution is good but i've never understood wtf is supposed to be happening. Some kid sitting on a rock presumably watching a football match on VR, while Eddie is in the vicinity of a burning city which has bugger-all to do with the kid in the corner. I enjoyed the album, but the cover is easily the worst in Maiden's library. Yes i'm counting DoD.

I think both the concept and the execution are great. Technology is taking over humanity, and now, something as tribial as a football match (11 players, heh) can only be enjoyed through a screen (save for the guys playing of course)

Notice also how the kid's posture makes him look like a joystick that Eddie's about to grab. That album does have several problems but that artwork is not one of them.
