I don't say I hate this band, but the front cover (not counting the others) of their demo is just too plain.

It's a cassette tape demo, dude, not a professional full-length presentation. Cut them some slack.

I actually kinda like it. It's about as simple as black metal front covers can get without just showing the band's logo.

Ah yes, good ol' Napalm Records, making album covers for 15 year old boys since 1995.

There's nothing wrong with that Deathspell Omega demo tape, it's quite nice. Simple and gets the point across.

Bad demo tape covers?

That absurd cover looks like someone dipped a paintbrush in semen and spread it around a black canvas.
EDIT:Speaking of letters written in semen.

also potatoes that resemble moai heads.

Psychotic Waltz - Mosquito

The cover is just ugly and doesn't even remotely fit the music they are playing on that album. The re-release cover is much better:
Spoiler: show

PS: I don't think it's fair to post so many bad gore covers. When an unknown band has to make a cover and they decide for a gore/photo cover, it almost certainly turns out ugly or rather hilarious. I think this thread should be reserved for the actually ugly covers, especially by bands that could have done it much better.

Both the covers look abstract and amateurish, but the first one is rather minimalistic, what kind of painting media were they using to draw it!? At least the second one looks much better, though still abstractly amateurish.

Necromicon - "Sighveiler". Bad album, awful art, made worse by being released in digi-book format.

I get a kick out of those Witchfinder General covers, considering they are probably the last band in the world to ever see titties. Not saying they aren't cool or write good music, but we all know that doesn't translate into chicks.

I always loved that cover art, and Baphomet was one of my first underground thrash bands because of it. The ridiculous face is a big selling point. :)

I actually like this because it looks like Mount Doom in a realm of psychedelia. Not only is the idea so out of left field that it's awesome, it serves as a funny troll to provoke anyone who takes The Lord of the Rings too seriously. :V

Wow. It's even more hilarious that someone thought that would be good enough to be a cover. How do you even come up with this stuff? lol

He looks more like one of the random cheese ball extras they used to use for vampires on Buffy and Angel than anything else to me.

I made that comparison in the OE thread, actually. :lol: I said it's like you stuck horns on Jim Carrey while he goes DURRRR.

I always thought it just looked like some hawaiian shirt. I can't even see how anyone else would think it would look like Mount Doom without you telling them so to be a decent 'troll'
