I like the Akercocke covers. They might offend the sensibilities of people with high moral standards, but it's precisely the combo of naked ladies and guys in old-fashioned suits that makes them work.

For a band called Bitchslicer with an album called Sex With Sharks, I expect a bit more class.

Man, I don't know what the deal is with the seal thing on those Riot covers, but fuck are those albums amazing. I actually kind of like the covers just because of the strength of the music.

I like that one too. Yeah, it's perverted and shit (which is not necessarily a bad thing depending on your views), but the artwork is done very well in my opinion and both are neat looking covers as a result. Hell, I may check them out soon.

Well since we're on the topic of perverted shit, here are some covers that some may find to be ugly or lame but I personally find to be completely fucking beautiful. Not sure about posting them in the finest album cover thread, though. I just felt they needed to be exposed to those who have not witnessed their magnificence. The covers get better in chronological order, in my opinion. Behold Zuckuss:

You inspired me to look up Zuckuss, and what I found did not disappoint! These song titles are gold:
"Bouncy Nipple II"
"Billy D. Wumpa Frumda Flame-Fart Factory"
"Flabba Da Slut"
"Markameltoed vs. The Mandalorian Mooseknuckle"

"Princest Leia's Labia Lasagne"

I just noticed the description on their page:

Quote:
The band gets their name from an alien bounty hunter that appeared on the Star Destroyer Executor during the fifth Star Wars movie, The Empire Strikes Back.


:nono: I hate how the fifth episode somehow becomes the fifth movie.

Acid Reign had some abysmally lazy covers. I feel like if they actually had decent artwork they might be remembered as one of those "lost gem" types of thrash bands.

Like, what the hell is that.

So is this an effective album cover or not?

Well, somebody thought Witchfinder General belonged in the finest album covers thread, so that evens it out.

But it does... :-D

One of my favorite covers of 2013, it has a lot of details and the moon is pretty nice. It's the dude from Acid Witch who also did their album covers.

It's a bit silly, but I get the feeling that's part of the charm. Looks almost exactly like the kind of covers you'd see in the late 80s.

Zelkiro is trying too hard to be picky, that cover rules. I still need to check Borrowed Time out though.

I never said I didn't like it. I just said it was silly, and that makes it charming. It's like the cover to Don't Break the Oath in that regard, in that its silliness is its strength and what makes it memorable.

Don't Break the Oath is fucking demon. There's no way you can step to that.

And, no, Metalucifer does not compare to MF, for anyone who was going to do tag-backs.

This is legitimately one of my favorite BDM albums of all time. Cover art aside, it's extremely fun and catchy without relying on slams too much.

I like it but I'd enjoy it more if the vocals weren't so bad

The thing that strikes me about that cover most is the band name. Why the misspelling of Kalashnikov? To avoid legal problems? Or is it genuinely spelled that way in certain countries?

Anyway, I dig what the cover is trying to do, but the execution is flawed. It would have just looked better slapping on a picture of some random Mujahideen warrior with an AK-74 and calling it a day. Paintings can be a hit and miss idea, as demonstrated there.

Do you realise that label that is? The album was not created by a real band, and everything related to it, most importantly the music, is mysteriously bad. It's like music created by deaf people.

Eh, that album cover has a very Immortal Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism charm to it. It's kinda cute.
